IDT Back In Brooklyn, Working Their Door To Door Scamming Magic

Just a quick heads up to everyone that IDT has nothing of value to offer you, so if someone claiming to be from IDT (or any other energy company that’s not the one you already buy energy from) comes to your door and asks to see your bill, give them a good how do you do and send them on their way. I’ve had IDT scammers hit my building twice in the past two weeks, and just now returned from throwing them out of the building a few minutes ago.

It can be easy to give in to their pitch if you’re not wary; the “salesmen” are attractive young women, and they hold out badges as identification when they introduce themselves. Read more about IDT here.

You might also want to post a notice in your building so that non-Consumerist readers know what’s going on.
