I've had 4 or 5 knocks on my door from them myself.

I asked the last 2 people who came to my door to stop coming,
and for their names,
supervisor name, phone number, business card,
anything.
Once I said I wasn't interested they refused to give out any more information.

I called the Everett Police for the info,
since they have to alert local police when they are knocking in doors,
EPD told me to look it up on the internet.

On the internet they are only interested in signing you up.

I spoke to a woman and asked to be taken off their list.

We'll see if that works.

I'm just amazed that knocking on my door all hours of the day,
today was noon, another time was 9pm, 5pm, and 3pm,
is not considered harassment by EPD.

Even after asking them not to come back each time.

Call Kaye Hicks - I bet she will help you. She's a strong advocate for older people on fixed incomes.

Martha Coakley is the top cop in Mass.

Tell her office exactly what happened.

Leaches prey on the poor, elderly & those with poor English skills in communities like Everett.

The police refuse to act, calling them legitimate businesses.
They are anything BUT legitimate.

They allow their independent agents to use confusing and deceitful tactics on their behalf,
such as;
Posing as representatives of your actual electric company
Returning to the same address multiple times till they finally get someone to hand over their energy bill, so they can use its information to sign you up

Then the company itself will use tactics like iron clad contracts, with expensive opt out clauses.

Federal law was changed to allow companies to get wholesale prices for energy, and sell to customers, giving them freedom of purchasing it from others, under the presumption of reducing energy costs to consumers.
Too bad companies have used this loophole to target unsuspecting people.

If I had signed a contract I would politely, but strenuously ask our Attorney Generals office to look into it.
Good luck!

Put up a no trespassing sign and a "no solicitation" sign. Tell them if they come on your property again, you'll call the cops on them for trespassing. You can only do this (believe it or not) IF you have a "no trespassing" sign on your property.
good advice

I tried that the first time.
They came back later that same day,
Then two weeks later
Then two weeks later still
Then a week after that.

It took 4 no thank you's to get them to leave me alone,
so far.

The white guy was at least polite.
The black guy was rude
and the black girl was horribly rude!

Don't let her smile fool you.

I live in Mass and it was almost 7pm here,when the phone rang with a rude,pushy man. He was set on getting me to like "just energy". Regretfully I gave him my account number, but once he got my name &I address wrong I asked for his number. He gave me a load if crap,so I asked again,finally got the number & his rep number then I immediately hung up on the guy. Goggled "just energy " & got nad &I needed to vent because everything else is closed!

Came to the door dressed in logo'd hat, jacket, badge. "Just Energy can save you money. Let me see your bill and I will show you your gas cost recovery charge and we can do this for less. We are the supplier and the gas company buys from us." "Your company owns the pipes to your house, and we supply the gas. Sign the contract, our manager will ask you some questions, and you will receive a letter from your gas company in a few weeks."
I asked for the rep's phone number, her manager's phone number, and I said I would think about this, and looked up "Just Energy" on the iPad. The search came up as a scam. I showed the screen to her. She left and I called the Sheriff giving a full description of her dress. However, they have driver's that dop them off and pick them up. Wish I would have watched to get a description of the car.

The cops told me the same thing,
that they were legitimate, and could knock on my door if they wanted to.

I guess they don't care about everyone who has been scammed by them.
They love Everett, non English speaking people & trusting older folks mean they can write fraudulent contract after fraudulent contract.

AND THE BLACK GIRL THAT WORKS THERE IS THE WORST OF ALL.

She has no class whatsoever. She is crass, obnoxious (well you get the picture)....If you make the mistake of opening your door to her (or any of them), just shut the door in their face - they don't mind they're so thick!!!!
