Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...


6 months ago,I've been approach by this nice, polite, well trained gentleman from Gateway energy services.
I am telling you all, ,, this people are very well dress and in a very good manner. Most of them are WHITE people, I guess because they paid them HIGH SALARY OR HIGH COMMISSION??? I barely seen any other Race come knocking my door from Gateway energy!! I guess I need to report them to Labor department as well for Racial Discrimination!!

What happen is , this agent told me that I could save a lot of money if I sign up with them,, and He pursue me really strong.. and keep pushing me to sign the Contract!! Guys, ladies and gentleman, teenager and all of you...please be carefull not to give your GAS or Electric Bills to them!!! they have target that they have to do each month or every quarter or something if not they are will get complain or even fired from this company!!

Do not sign any agreement without asking for explanation!!! THIS IS FOR YOUR GOOD... remember to asking first and not to sign anything.. you don't want your bill to go double and keep going high and there is no way out from the contract unless you paid cancelation fee or waiting until your contract is finish!!
real warning.. 99% of them are very intelligent, white gentleman/agent that will absolutly make you trust them and sign with them.


Good man standing

Gateway Energy

AUTHOR: GDB - (United States of America)

All any consumer wants from their electricity supplier is reliable service at a fair price.  It is outrageous that companies like Gateway Energy appear to be misrepresenting their rates as competitive when they are in fact much higher.  This practice of overcharging for electricity appears to be a blatant violation of consumer protection laws, and Meiselman, Denlea, Packman, Carton & Eberz, P.C. is actively investigating a potential class action against Gateway Energy.  If you would like to discuss your legal options, please do not hesitate to contact me:

#3 Consumer Suggestion

gateway energy services is a ripoff

AUTHOR: Grimreaper - (U.S.A.)

the person that said they saved money with gateway energy is either an employee,or a pathological liar.

here are the facts:

1.gateway energy's rate this month is 80 cents for columbia gas ohio's customers

columbia gas ohio's rate is 49 cents

2.gateway energy cannot guarantee you any savings on the cost of your natural gas

3.gateway energy is simply a reseller of natural gas.they are not a supplier are guaranteed to spend more money when choosing a natural gas supplier. the last 7 years,every natural gas reseller's rate has been higher than

the rate offered by the utility,except for a few months in 2008.

6.gateway energy,as well as other natural gas resellers will always try to sidestep

any questions about their pricing by claiming they have thousands of customers.

what they dont say is 99% of them are elderly,and just don't know any better.

7.gateway hires a boiler room operation to solicit natural gas customers over the phone.they will use deception to make you think they are from the gas company.

if a rep of gateway energy calls you,tell them to take you off of their calling list,and put your number on the national do not call registry.

What is your point?

AUTHOR: jcity - (United States of America)

Hello, You never made it clear why you are reporting Gateway to rip I believe that your comments are referring to a personal opinion. Your statements are that "White" people are knocking your door...?? Okay? and??? I do NOT believe that gateway is a ripoff. I know people that use them and are saving money on their utility bills.
