I got a call from Verde. It was a guy with an Indian accent that I could barely understand. He told me he was calling from PECO. I was such a good customer that PECO (not Verde) wanted to offer me 25% off my electric bill and 35% off my gas. Then he said I would no longer have to pay a $12.05 service fee. My budget bill, which is $355 currently was going to drop to $65. When I questioned his math he said that is because they were going to remove all my charges which when I looked at my bill amounted to $117.19. If I subtract that from $355 I get $237.19 so where is this $65 bill coming from? He also said that my kWh was going to drop from .155 to .999. I looked at my bill and it looks like I'm paying .13062 per kWh. Where are they getting their numbers?
When I asked the guy if I could put him on hold he was very gracious. I then called PECO and asked them if they were, indeed, calling all their good customers to offer good rates. The answer: NO! I flipped back to the guy and told him what PECO said. We were mysteriously disconnected.
A few minutes later he called me back from a different phone number and apologized for the disconnection. I told him he was not being honest about who was calling. It was then that he told me he was calling from Verde Energy. He apologized for not telling me that in the first place.
If this doesn't seem sketchy to you then by all means use them as your electric provider. I will not be using them. ”
“ I renewed my plan with Oasis and Verde is taking over Oasis and their contracts but isn't honoring the rates. I called Oasis and they said my contract expired in July but yet I renewed with a 18 month fixed rate contract in May. I contacted Verde and they said I'm enrolled in a variable rate plan which I would never do and have the email from Oasis showing I'm in a fixed rate program. Of course I printed out everything for the new contract. I called Verde today and told them to send me all of the information on my account but they said I'm not sure if we can because it's closed which is fine they were informed by email all calls would be recorded. My Attorney will be filing a case against Verde once they provide the information I requested. ”
“ I found this energy supplier and tried to sign up. After spending 2 hours on the phone trying to register with them I thought I was all set. Little to my surprise they called me back because they forgot information. They promised ne a gift card worth $50 and said I was all set. I never received a gift card and they never signed me. I callled to see about the gift card and was told i am not partnered with them. What a waste of time. Customer service was very unhelpful they didnt know what they were doing. Please try another energy company first. Save yourself the let down! ”
