Consumer Watch: Door to Door Utility Salespeople


DECATUR-You may want to think twice if a door to door salesperson offers you a better deal on your power bill. 

You get a knock on your door.  The person says they work for Ameren and can save you money.

They ask to look at your bill.  

Then, they tell you they actually work for an alternate energy supplier and by switching, you can save money. 

Marcelyn Love from Ameren Illinois says the best way to make an informed decision to switch is to do research online. 

She says Ameren Illinois employees will never come to your door to offer a deal and that all Ameren employees will have a badge and id number.
