IDT Energy Inc. Scammed by IDT Energy Reps, Bunch of Liars Newark New Jersey
*Consumer Suggestion: Rebuttal
Canceling wasn't a problem, I'm sure IDT Energy make their money from the first bill or two they get to charge people before they cancel, so even if everyone that signs with them cancel their contract, IDT Energy have already made a profit from all the bills they were able to charge from all those people before they canceled their contract.
I live in Corona, NY and the IDT Energy Reps that came to my home to scam my me and my parents were: Ricardo Mojica, David Vargas (rep # 8408133) and a DiCaron (rep # 8701626). They made lots of promises of discounts and savings, savings of 7 to 14 percent on electric charges, 14 percent on first month, then 7 percent; no sales tax on delivery; no state gross receipts tax; no delivery charges; no basic service charges; lower price for electricity. All turn out to be a bunch of lies.
One of the reps have told us that he's a supervisor, but when I called IDT and inquired about him they couldn't give me any information about him or the other reps. When I called him on his cell phone that he had given us, he lied and said he no longer worked for IDT. I said, "yeah right, so you just signed us up and then left?" He said he used to work for them and they were short and needed help, so they called him and he was just helping out when he signed us, but that he didn't work for IDT anymore. What BS!
If you are ever contacted by any IDT Energy representative my advice is that you don't believe a word they tell you tell them to leave immediately and never come back, then slam your door on their face. If you have been scammed already, called them immediately to cancel and tell them that if they don't cancel your contract immediately that you'll sue them. Also, call Con Edison or whichever was your electric company and ask them to cancel the ESCO immediately, you can do this online too, which I also did just to make sure it got canceled ASAP.
Today I filed a complaint with the New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. http://www.oag.state.ny.us/contact.html
Also filed complaint with New York State Public Service Commission.
Then I found this website and wrote this Ripoff Report.

If anyone has filed a class action lawsuit against IDT Energy Inc. I would like to participate on the lawsuit. I really hope a lot of people that have been scammed by IDT Energy would get together and sue them, so they stop scamming people. Also hope the government gets involved soon and investigate IDT Energy and any other ESCO company scamming people.
