A reader reports IDT Energy is knocking on doors right now (7:45 PM, Monday, Oct 9th) in Brooklyn, around 3rd and Bergen.
They pretend to work for Con Edison but are actually hardball sales people for IDT, trying to get you locked into one of their variable rate energy plans.
Look out for a man and an African-American woman sporting a ConEd binder and an IDT photo ID.
“They said I had to sign something and was being overcharged by ConEdison,” says our tipster, “and claimed to work for the company that supplies ConEdison. Good thing I read Consumerist.”
Our reader is going around putting up warning notes on his neighbor’s doors. He says, “I feel bad for my Hispanic neighbors.”
