There are people coming door to door selling hydro for a reduced rate. What they do not tell you is that, not only will you enjoy the reduced rate but you will pay it in addition to your current rate. Hydro One will bill them and they will bill you. It is only a three year contract. By the time the ‘consumer protected’ cancel a contract signed in your home expires (10 days) that is when you will receive your first enhanced bill.
Here is a water heater scam as well. http://www.utilitieskingston.com/News/NewsArticle.aspx?ID=93
Please tell every senior that you know about these types of sales people so that they are also aware.
The old adage is that “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is’ – or it always is.
