Be Aware That Sales Folk From Low Rated Company Are Working the Area
Yesterday, a sales representative knocked on a Fortuna man’s door. “He said he was with SFE Energy, and wanted to see my PG&E bill, to see if I was being charged the correct rate for my gas,” explained the Fortuna man who wishes to remain anonymous.
The sales representative used high pressure tactics, according to the local resident. “He proceeded to talk talk talk about how I might be overcharged…He kept asking to see my bill, or wanted to make a phone call with me to check something, but he was never really clear on why we would be making a call, or to whom.”
The Better Business Bureau gives SFE Energy an F in its rating system and does not accredit them. In the last three years they’ve had 55 complaints about the company.
If you should be approached by a salesperson, please read carefully before signing any contract. Most of the complaints online refer to utility bills rising afterwards and not being able to cancel the service without paying a fee.
