Hope I run you out of my house when you are working to feed your family. What scam they are legit, honest young people with honest jobs. The only ones that don't like them are the ones smoking weed and dont want any one knocking on their door.

They are SCUM!
One of them (male, black, looked to be in his early 30's)
threatened me on my own porch!
I called the police immediately after he left,
and they said, his word against mine, bla bla bla,
they can't (won't) do anything unless they are still there.
Honest people don't threaten strangers on their own porch for refusing their services!

About a week ago had a black male, about 30 yrs old, ring our bell. I immediately told him, "No, I wasn't interested." He tried to keep me talking - that is until my husband (a big guy) came to the door behind me to see what was happening. His attitude changed a little (but not much), I finally just said, "No and what don't you understand about No" and shut the door (not slammed, just shut it while he was still talking. I could see a bill on his clip board that someone else had unwisely given him.....He did have an ID card around his neck.....
A few weeks before that, it was a young black female, same routine. These kids would make great used car salespeople !!!!
Just don't open your door, they are annoying....

that girl has a mouth on her!
they work off a sales commission
so they hard sell everyone.
the black guy & black girl work as a team,
one works one side of the street
the other works the other.
one knocks on your door today,
the other gets you a few days later
after you already said no.
Engage them if you want
but saying No!
and closing (not slamming) the door is what I ended up doing after my fourth visit.
They come different times of the day after you say no.
I can only guess they are hoping a different family member will answer the next time and hand over the bill.

This makes perfect sense!!!
Why keep trying the same house, at different times after they already said no, over and over and over again?
Because if you come back enough times you might get a kid, or grandmother or someone else trusting who doesn't know any better and just hands over the bill!

Just Energy is not a scam. Go check their website dudes. Jesus! All the conservative people. If it is a scam, why is it still around. Go check their website and you can see their office locations and all, you can even go there. If it is a scam, it won't be around until now get it? Think please.

just because a company has a website and an office, doesn't make it a legitimate business. Praying on consumers with deceptive tactics = scam. Targeting areas where English is not the native language for many of the residents = scam.

I don't know whether or not it's a scam but the black woman IS very pushy and won't stop talking until you have to shut the door in her face. I didn't want to be rude but she gave me no choice.

It is a scam
It's still around, because its a scam that works.
Rope people into signing contracts, WITH PENALTY CLAUSES!
If its so great, why would anyone want to leave the plan?
If so few people want to leave the plan, then WHY HAVE A PENALTY CLAUSE?
They knock on the same door at different times of the day,
MISREPRESENTING THEMSELVES AS WORKING FOR A SUBSIDIARY OF NATIONAL GRID!
hoping to get someone to finally show them your electric bill.
Then whamo, they sign you up!
When they knock at your door,
ask them for a business card,
or the name & number of their supervisor.
THEY WILL NOT GIVE IT TO YOU!
If by some chance you get it,
Please post it here!
