I know I do not want anyone knocking at my door. I do not work 9-5 and need my sleep during the day. I do not have time for salesmen and bible thumpers. You can't be polite these days because they keep coming back or just keep talking. I find I have to be down right rude and shut the door or walk away. What gets me is the church people that are so persistent. People can't take a hint.

Yeah.They jack it up.All the bullshit with energy saving appliances is just that....BULLSHIT.National grid knows they can get away with it because they know they are our only source for delivery.The lower that bill is,the higher the delivery charge is.What I want to know is is if my bill is low,what,exactly,is it that they delivered to my home?National grid can't seem to answer that one.Two years ago I put up a lot of christmas lights and my bill was almost $400.00 for a month.And I haven't did it since.However,national grid hasn't been out to read my meter,but instead has been estimating my monthly bill off that one $400.00 bill....I live in a 2 bdrm. apartment!!!FTW!

I live in a two bedroom apartment too my bill is 55$. But the most it has ever been was 130$. I think something is wrong with your bill unless you constantly keep lights on and such.

My bill isn't that high.It was just that one month and they have been estimating my bill since then.Nobody has been to my house to read the meter since that bill(2 years).It's always been estimated.I keep telling NG there's something wrong and asking them to come to my house to read the meter,but nobody comes.In 2 yrs,I have paid them $8,298.00.

He was then ripping it up and said there its ripped up but your not getting it back. I said I will call the police right then and there he handed it right over to me.

You may want to block your account ASAP so that it does not change to Citizens Choice. With an account number they can do it claiming they have authorization. It's called FRAUD.
citizens choice never asks people to sign anything... you were dooped... No id? How did u know who he workd for?

Lol, I asked them the same question, if my supply was low why the high delivery charge. They really did not have a good answer. As for the prior posting, yes being rude works. They will come back and they got pushing with my gf one day when I was not home and kept telling her to open the door and give her my bill

#1-If they are door to door soliciting they need a permit from the city, or they will be fined up to $10,000.

#2-national grid sends you a letter to notify you that you "changed suppliers" if you didn't authorize this switch please call...

#3. You can always put a block on your account to prevent these companies from switching you without your consent.

#4- your national grid delivery charges are set by grid, it doesn't matter who your supplier is. But yes national grid did get a 20% increase on delivery rates last year. But this year it was in the paper that they are lowering their rates for the winter

I think you are confused because citizens choice employees always carry an i.d. and they do not make you sign for anything they verify you by making a call i do not think it was citizens choice your boyfriend talked with.

Citizens Energy needs to guarantee they are cheaper like Ambit Energy does. Put your money wear your mouth is. Offer the consumer a straight deal.

<quoted text> I was thinking the same thing. This guy is an idiot. If they has such a superior company they wouldn't have to have ppl go door to door. Who does that anyways now days?

Direct sales (door to door) company are and will always be around look at some of the worlds billionaires. That started out the same way all these company started..this industry is very large whether its involve the energy deregulation, Verizon Fio direct TV dish network Mary Kay etc. It is all on how the individual who work for the company represent not only the company but themselves ..you can't knock some of these company at all some of them take young adults off the street and turn them into somebody ..look it up jmsdirectinc.com or topmarketing.Com or look up midtownpromotion ....people now and days need to stop with the ignorance and look up the company before you open your mouths thank you guys and girls.......and remember bill gates started that way as well.
