AUGUSTA, Maine — Central Maine Power is urging customers to be wary of door-to-door energy sales people who may be misrepresenting themselves as CMP employees.
According to CMP, the company has been receiving many customer complaints about the supplier’s salespeople misrepresenting themselves as working for, or on behalf of CMP, demanding to see copies of customers’ CMP bills, and for providing false and misleading information about energy prices.
“CMP is not affiliated with any energy supplier, and we do not have people going door-to-door demanding customers produce their bill,” said Gail Rice, spokesperson for CMP. “We want to warn our customers they are under no obligation to provide account details or any personal information to any sales representative, no matter how persistent or aggressive that representative becomes.”
Customers who believe they’ve been subjected to an energy supplier’s deceptive sales practices should call the MPUC at 1-800-452-4699. To file a complaint on line, click here.
