What kind of leads are these? Deadbeat leads! Don't watch if you are offended by cussing.    Classic Pacino & Spacey in Glengarry Glenn Ross.

Never heard of them. Did you solicit them; or them, you? Like Thomas J. Nelson, Realtor, ePRO, CRS, RCS-D says, never do business with someone/service you do not solicit. 

A previous broker used something similar, and it was basically a scam. I think they bought a list from someone that bought a list from another person. Leads had never contacted anyone or searched for real estate.

I hope you get to the bottom of this, and I hope you get something out of this, other than a harded learned lesson. 

How did this get so out of hand? Weren't the leads bogus and crap the entire time? Why keep paying them, or was this a setup expense?

I'm sorry you had this experience but, honestly, this is a risk you take with ANY lead generation company.  Your money is always better spent doing your own marketing and prospecting to YOUR target market.

I just have been contacted by them and they offered me the same.  I held off and checked the BBB website.  All the 1 stars were very detailed and had the emotion of being burned, and generally long winded.  They had a lot of 5 stars that were all very short and generic. It looks like a lazy attempt to bring up their score with the BBB.  No thanks!

If you have not figure it out by now, you have been scammed by setschedule and they will go through any length for cover the real story, the fake reviews, the fake 1.1 million FB likes, the great "fake" employee review (check indeed and glassdoor yourself), the "unfindable" yelp page, the fake bbb review, the fake sitegrabber review, and I can honestly say that setschedule spends more time trying to coverup the real story versus try to provide agent leads because it's just a numbers game for them. They got me for $6,000+, did they get you?  And why should they care if the bogus leads the send us don't work out, they already got paid, we are the poor LICENSED suckers that listen to data center "geek" about selling more houses. Really? We are talking advise from someone who never sold a house.

I was told I would get 100 leads right away and then an additional 50 leads each following month. I have been signed up for 2 months and have 85 leads. Where are the other 65 leads? I have requested them to increase the lead volume for a month now and all I get is empty promises. I requested a manager call me and nothing. I would not recommend this company. They are disorganized and don't follow through with the promised leads once they take your upfront fee. 100% UNSATISFIED! I was also told I would get scheduled appointment leads. I have received 1 of those type of leads in 2 months and it wasn't even a real seller. He sold the home 6 years ago!!!
