USAP GROUP, LLC, Complainant


Anonymous, Author of Report #1119415,


Complainant USAP Group, LLC (the “Complainant”) has challenged the truthfulness of certain specific statements (each, a “Statement”) posted by Author Anonymous (the “Author”) on the Ripoff Report website at as Ripoff Report #1119415 (the “Report”). The Author states that they had an unsatisfactory experience working for the Complainant. The Complainant denied all such accusations. The Author did not submit a response to the Complainant or any contact information. Therefore, in accordance with the Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration Rules (the “Rules), the Author waived their right to participate in this Arbitration. By submitting a Report and a Complaint on the Ripoff Report websites, both the Complainant and the Author have agreed to submit the dispute to the Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration Program.

In accordance with the Rules, the Arbitrator was asked to decide whether the challenged Statements were an opinion or a fact. If, and only if, the Statement was determined to be a statement of fact, the Arbitrator was asked to further decided if, by a preponderance of the evidence, to determine if the Statement was true or false. If the statement identified by the Complainant is determined to be an opinion, no determination will be made as to that particular Statement because an opinion cannot be determined to be true nor false.

In this case, the Arbitrator had only the evidence submitted by the Complainant to consider. The evidence submitted included Ripoff Report #1119415, Complainant’s Arbitration Statement, Complainant’s Witness Statements, and supporting documentation.

Each Statement challenged by the Complainant has been considered, together with any Witness Statements and Documents provided by the Complainant for determination of the truth or falsity of the Statement. The Author did not provide a response to the Complaint.

The Arbitrator determined that the certain statements challenged in the Report were false. Therefore, according to the VIP Arbitration Rules, those statements have been redacted.

Decided October 24, 2014

I was working For this company located, ((Statement REDACTED as false pursuant to Ripoff Report VIP Arbitration)). I went through training and worked for a week.They told me that I would get commission and a salary of 250 dollars. Which is a bold face lie with the salary part it's an all commision slave job. They want you to come in early in the morning and leave late at night. Majority of the time working there you work for 12 hours, in any weather condition. They make it seem very promising at first but in reality the job is irritating, and frustrating. You have to get 10 people signed up in a week, and if you don't get them you will be gone. That also means even if u do get 10 people signed up and some of them cancel out on you it still wont coundt and you wont get paid. But of course the company still gets paid for your work. Thats how they keep their company affloat, they feed off people not making it. If you do decide to try to get a check, from them after they have fired you, you will have to wait 60 days to get it, and you only get 5 dollars per person. Not only that I got 4 people to sign up and they only counted 2 so yeah you do the math....... If you do decide to still try it out for yourself I would say you better be good at door to door selling or else....... I also signed my mother up and they arent even better than other ESCO companies. Kiwi raised her instead of lowering. Your also considered a contractor instead of an employee, they have alot of crap to trap you into not sueing them, or for them to pay you. I wouldn't work for that company again.

Understand you could never scam Con Ed. and if you believe everything you read online is Naive but good luck with your future endeavors. I have a friend that works there and is very successful making steady paychecks every week. The difference between you and him, was probably he has a good attitude and that projects to his customers.

Energy deregulation is here.  Energy companies may now buy and sell energy like a commodity, to be delivered to consumers by the same public utility company as in the past.  One bill, paid to the same public utility company as in the past, but componentized to segregate the supply from the delivery portions of the bill.  Each consumer has the ability to choose a new supplier, and there are many suppliers.  Some with fixed rates, extended contracts and penalties for early termination, some with variable rates and month-to-month contracts and no penalty for early termination.  Most will offer promotional rates for one or two months, followed by an increase in rate, so consumers have many factors to consider when selecting the company they wish to supply their energy.  The changing of rates after a promotional period or the assessment of a penalty for early termination of a fixed-rate fixed-period contract are not scams, but are definitely factors to consider when making the decision to change providers.  If the future could be predicted, it would be much easier to make a decision regarding one product or another or the concept of fixed rate and time vs. variable rate considerations.    In the end, most pricing will be fairly comparable.  Some companies have sought other ways of differentiating themselves by providing greener energy for comparable costs and others have associated themselves with charities in order to win the allegiance of consumers.  One company has done both and also returns some of its profits in referral fees to its customers, thus driving down an otherwise comparable price to a price below that offered by any of its competitors to those customers who make such referrals.  Referring customers can benefit in their rates indefinitely, providing them a worry-free no-investment no-risk alternative to the high cost of energy today.   The key for each consumer is to know what makes the most sense given the personal preferences of that consumer.  One consumer may want the peace of mind of a long-term rate commitment, another may wish to contribute to a healthier environment, while a third may wish to benefit a particular charity with the same basic energy choice.  There is no right answer.  Understanding all available options before choosing a supplier is always the key.
