I take natural gas payments in my business. None of the Choice Programs have a better price than Columbia Gas.It did not surprise me to see Just Energy get caught ripping people off. They were charging .89 cent per ccf before added charges and Columbia Gas has a rate of .50 cent per ccf.

When these types showed up selling this I told em I prefered to just sit on my porch and wait for someone to come along and just give me the gas. They said, "Right on" and left me alone.

Why are people gullible enough to let these rip-off artists take advantage of them. The solution is easy: Tell them to take their gas and shove it where the sun don't shine when they come knocking at your door.

When telemarketers used to call, I enjoyed messing with them. I would get them off their script and they would hang up on me.

I am SO glad this is happening to these losers. I made a mistake of going to an "interview" with these folks when they called me saying they found my resume on Monster. I'm already employed, but figured what the heck, might as well go & see what's up. Thinking I was interviewing for an actual job lol. Then I get there, get shuffled into a room with like 20 other people and some dude is talking to us about all the "savings" they can offer customers and how rewarding it is to work there - it's a freakin' door to door sales job! I was SO mad I wasted some paid time off from my REAL job to waste time going there. Once I got home, I researched them thoroughly online and they are the worst sort of scammers. Mostly scamming the elderly, which is despicable. I hope they soon go out of business forever!!

they pick on the elderly, people that come from a different time when you actually trusted people.
