Door to door energy people?

Has anyone else had people coming to their door wanting to talk about your energy provider? A young man knocked on my door about it this afternoon and wanted to talk about it. He didn't identify himself. I asked how he got into our building and he said someone buzzed him in. I had him leave because we don't allow people to go door-to-door in our building soliciting. Was this guy legit or part of a scam I always hear going around?

  • robin in WRP Tired, very tired

    You really need to call 911 on these people, and remind your neighbors to not buzz in anyone they are not expecting.

  • CINDEE in home E-bay business

    It's definitely a scam. They want you to change your energy provider - offer sounds good but they get you in the end. REFUSED by me -told them I wasn't interested.

  • That exact same thing happened to my roommate, who also asked this person how they got into the building! In the end my roommate had to basically kick the person out because they wouldn't leave. Also supposedly they smelled like garbage and told him "don't look us up online because there are a lot of bad reviews where people claim it's a scam, but it's not".
