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?

  • CINDEE in home E-bay business

    If I remember correctly, a friend of mine signed up for the reduced rate as well. However, when she received the bill it was quite the contrary to what she thought it to be. At the moment I don't recall the details, but it was in fact a scam. I would just suggest to everyone to be careful; there's a lot going on out there.

  • SagWriter A good neighbor

    I think I'm going to go ahead and RE-CHECK what I did/received. THANKS!!!
