Bobsrepair.com is eliminating fraud in the services industry by introducing Blockchain to the consumer through a decentralized listings marketplace.
The skilled trade industry is experiencing great fraud online with fake reviews. Top rated companies engage in fraud by inflating their reviews online and removing negative reviews by directly contacting unhappy consumers or the websites that their businesses are listed on. Reviews on search listings such as local google recommendations, HomeAdvisor and Yelp can no longer be trusted, leaving customers under the false impression that top-rated companies are credible.
Reviews for these sites may be purchased online from third-party sellers which coordinate crowds of real people to write them for a financial, point-based or other types of incentive. Conversely, companies may also engage in purchasing negative reviews for their competitors in order to gain an unfair advantage in the marketplace.
Classified listing sites such as Craigslist can no longer be trusted either. Top listings on the site are made by companies that outsource the posting of ads to the website, over-saturating the market with fraudulent ads that pretend to connect consumers to low-cost contractors but in fact connect them to companies that charge unfair rates due to their marketing placement advantage on the site.
Further negative stipulations of such centralized marketplaces is that the companies take money for leads from contractors, which in turn pins the price of the lead generation onto the consumer, making them pay $30, $70, or even $150 more for a small service job.

This implementation requires experts in the skilled trade market space that have experience with home repair and advanced API technologies. Bob’s Repair is a
