You should write a post so Google will index all of it & use names. I also had this problem with Placester & they always 'tried' to fix it. I had a different problem but the basic premis was that the IDX never frickin' worked.

I did not pay every month that it didn't work until I finally couldn't stand it anymore. I did slam them in all kinds of reviews & posts so others won't make the same mistakes.

Another glowing endorsement for iHomefinder. We collect your money and provide no real service.

       This is why I use throw-away credit cards (you can get them from Walmart and other retailers).  Companies like iHomefinder cannot keep charging a card that has a zero balance.

    Also, what  Lyn Sims said... state the facts and no-name calling (to avoid libel), but write posts about them, share it on all of your social media sites, spread the word.

Hi Jenn- you have every right to be dismayed. I have never heard of this company and it appears that is a good thing.

Jenn,

We used to recommend them to our clients, however we stopped many years ago, when the company was sold, and the principals we knew left for greener pastures.  A

Dispute the charges with your credit card company.  You will prevail. 

Bottom line no credit card company will require you to pay for services you did not receive. 

Don't waste any time writing anyone.

I've never worked with them, so really can't help much here. Sounds like Lyn Sims has had a less than sterlong experience with them.

I fired them after 6 months because they simply have a terrible product in my opinion.  Changed to BoomTown and have been so much happier.

Thanks for sharing, Jenn Erickson and I'm sorry to hear of your experience. I've not heard of this company but am now glad for that.

I hope you can get some of your money back using some of the ideas others have shared here.

Thanks for the heads up Jenn Erickson . I am not familiar with them and thanks to your post I never will be. 

 

BTW I had a similar problem with a web developer who used to blog and advertise here, I think they were called Z57. They lied their asses off about what they would do for me and then refused to cancel the contract or refund me anything.
