Direct Energy scammed me to sign up

Jose Martinez, Dallas - 2016-02-02 18:16:54

I was offered a $400 gift if I signed up. I switched and then was informed that I would have to be with them for 6 months before I get the gift card. I waited the 6 months and I received an email to a link to receive my gift card only to find out that it didnt work. Plus I was only eligible to receive $200 not the full $400. I would have to wait another 6 months to collect the rest. They wasted a lot of my time and I never received the gift card. Then when I switched they charged me a $300 Early cancellation fee. They are a bunch of crooks. Do not sign up with this company. You have been warned.

Still haven't received my refund!

Vanessa, Ft.Worth - 2016-01-28 12:33:28

I had prepaid service through Direct Energy. I transferred my service with. 52.76 balance left on my account. I was sent a text message from this company advising I would have a refund of my balance minus 2.50 within 4-6 weeks. I called and was advised that it could not be put back on my card, refunds had to be mailed. After 6 weeks I still had not received my refund. I called and spoke with a customer service agent and 2 supervisors. Still got no where. I am now currently speaking with office of the president with Direct Energy. I was advised that a refund was put on my card on January 19,2016. #1 this lets me know that I was lied to from the beginning that they couldn't do refunds on my card, #2 I still have NOT received my refund on my card. I was told to allow 3-5 business days. Today is the 7th business day and still no refund. I've contacted my financial institution twice to ensure its not a error on their end. It's been confirmed that no deposit has been made from Direct Energy. That as soon as they receive the funds it will be deposited in my account. So I'm telling Office of President agent that I have been dealing with this information and yet nothing has been done. I still don't have my refund of my money. This company has showed no empathy at all and seems to have no answer as to why it's been 8 weeks and I still don't have my refund. I would NEVER do business with this company or refer them to anyone. I'm really thinking of pursuing an attorney.

Paid but power was still cut off

Eric, Mesquite - 2016-01-22 16:27:10

I paid my bill at 6:15AM in the morning. Between 8:00AM and 12:20PM the same day my power was cut off. I don't understand why. At least they cut it back on before I got home. Service really sucks.... Choose another company, I am going to transfer my service today
