I came across something on ripoffreport.co that caught my eye. It was a recent report on a power company run out of Clearwater, FL.
I am the owner at a restaurant in PA. I was very happy with my electric service until lately. I had been with the same company for three years, paying 7˘ per kilowatt hour, a fixed rate. Then, in January a waiter took a phone call from American Power and Gas and unbeknownst to me, switched my service to their company. He was NOT authorized to do this whatsoever and the company in question did not require ANY form of identification to verify that he was the owner or person in charge. In fact, when the rebate came in the mail, the check was written out in his name. So I called to find out why, and they didn't even have me, THE OWNER listed on the account! Then, when I took a closer look at my bill this month I noticed I was being charged 11˘ per kilowatt hour! I was billed $700 more than I would have paid had this never happened. So when I called to fix this mishap, they determined that there was no mistake on their part and they would do nothing to help the situation. Oh and their selling point, the rebate check? It has yet to be received. This company is unlawful and needs to be shut down immediately. Complete ripoffs! My lawyer will be calling them very soon!
I google this company and there's stuff like this about them all over the place.
So, I go to sunbiz.org to find out who owns this company. It's someone named "Tom Cummins"
I google "Tom Cummins".
Anyone ever hear anything about this company before? It's the first time I've heard of it.
