N.J. Gas and Electric Ripped me off by raising my service rates 87 percent in January 2014! Fort lee, New Jersey
I too was the victim of the unscrupulous company called N.J. Gas and Electric. I received a call from the company 2 years ago, stating that their company could save me money over my other provider, JCP&L.
Needless to say, here I am 2 years later with grossly inflated gas and electric bills. My gas bill for Jan/Feb was $420.00, up from $180.00 in December. No additional usage or raised thermostats were the culprits. I am now looking at a $690.00 gas bill, as they did not "adjust" the bill as they claimed they would do.
When I called the company (3 times) I got the old "I'll speak to my supervisor" line. I asked the customer service rep to connect me to the supervisor myself, he replied that no rep speaks to the supervisor. I guess this group is run by the Great and Powerful Oz.
I did some research and found that I am paying $1.40 per therm for gas, as opposed to the $0.44 I would be paying with NJ Natural Gas. This comes out to an 87% increase in my rates iduring the last 2 months, with no notice whatsoever. How any company can operate like this is outrageous.
How many other people have they done this to? I hope that a true investigation is launched and the unfair practices that NJ Gas imposes on others is revealed, under the guise of benefitting the consumer. Shameful!
