Watch out neighbors! I just had a ridiculously persistent Direct Energy (I think) scammer come to the door. I said I was not interested and did not open the door. He wouldn't leave my porch and kept telling me I needed to update my records to keep my service. Wouldn't leave even after I threatened to call the police. I went to get the phone to actually call them and he took off and was gone before I could even call.
Don't open your door to this guy and don't engage. Very persistent and the message is likely confusing for some as he was insisting on me verifying my gas and electric bills to continue my service.
