RS Constr These people called my office and the story seems to be consistent on how they sell the service. They got their $99 and sent a so called background check confirmation. I have responded to every lead they have sent us. Strangely enough it is for what would appear to be home owners. Nothing ever comes out of it. In some cases the email addresses are bogus and the only response you will get is a mailer daemon response for an undeliverable address. When you try to call the office back and talk to your sales person, they are never available. I contacted several of the banks that we do business with. None of them have heard about this service (Trade Workers Online).

DP01 I just got off the phone with trade workers, and it seemed like a scam. I'm glad I found this forum. If it seems too good to be true it probably is. Since I have advertising I'm constantly getting "scam" calls.

This is the letter- there is no real business here- its a scam. If AnYBODY actually gets work- post it. They will NOT verify any information RE: bank contact info- used contractors, last names of officers, business address, they will ONLY take online payments to avoid using the Mail system- a federal offense for scams. The "sales" message is a "michael"- it is prerecorded and comes from at least 3 area codes- Personell receiving calls- Rachael, Cathy, Brooklyn and the "owner" Lisa. BBB rated an "F"
If they were legit they would need your whole SS# to do a real background check. What good is the last four, that only works with the cable company or somewhere where they already have the rest of the number on file.

Unfortunately these people are like cockroaches...flip on the lights and they are gone. Run them out of business and they just reappear as another company doing the same thing. From all you guys on here that have been scammer, I'd say they have a pretty successful business model. I went through the same repated calls from a company called Contractors Pipeline..I finally went off on the guy. "You cant tell me you have plenty of work when I run with all the biggest dogs in So Cal and know for a fact they are all hurting....so to put it bluntly..you are all bull****"

There should be a class action lawsuit against these guys - I've told them 4 times to take my name off the list and they do not and the girls are rude & hang up on you. I get 6 calls a week at LEAST from them.
