the IDT energy scammers are back. Hit my building twice in 2 months. my neighbors have got to stop letting anyone in the building who buzzes (another story) but they got mouthy when I refused to open the door & told them to get lost and not come back. put up the flier in the entrance way…
I was particularly upset because they knocked on the door and introduced themselves by name, and seemed offended when i asked them what they wanted from behind a locked door. His response was “we’re here about something on the back of your electric bill that you haven’t responded to” and that’s when I knew what was up. I said “not interested” and he started talking again and i said “I know it’s a scam, get lost.” I walked away from the door so I didn’t hear if there was a response. The gall of these hucksters.
While perhaps not the most exciting stuff to be found on this site do take a moment, gentle readers, to read the above flier* about third party energy providers. An ounce of education is worth a pound of sticker shock!
