“F Rating” From Better Business Bureau for Energy Company That Has Sales People Currently Working in the Area
Two years ago almost to the day, we published a story about SFE Energy, a low-rated energy company that was doing door to door sales in our area. Today, we received word that they are back in the area.
According to a Hydesville resident, “Two people were walking around…trying to get people to change [their] service provider from PG&E to a company called SFE. I did limited research and found the whole thing to be a scam.”
Two years ago, another local resident contacted us and described being contacted by a salesperson for the company who used high-pressure tactics. According to the resident then, “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. They’ve had 119 complaints filed about the company so far.
We suggest, if you should be approached by a salesperson for this company, please read carefully before signing any contract. Many of the complaints online refer to utility bills rising afterward and not being able to cancel the service without paying a fee.
