Comment on Is Volunteer Energy a Scam? by Vern

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 17:44:08 +0000

Volunteer Energy customer.....I checked my gas bill in jan 2014 Volunteer Energy was .59 and checked with Semco they were at .39. So, I called Volunteer and asked why they were higher and I was told Semco was selling under Market price and Volunteer wasn't making money at .59 it was a break even for them!!! I told them to cancel and they said the next billing cycle will be back with Semco. Well it wasn't and the price for my last bill went up to 1.09, almost double!!!! So I called and nobody is willing to do anything. So Volunteer is a total Scam and I will let everyone know! They had two chances to make it right but they did not. I was a customer with Volunteer for many years and that was my mistake. Don't let it be yours. I will show my bills to anyone that ask for proof. Total scam when they tell you the pricing is locked in, don't believe a word they say. This was a commercial account Volunteer Charged me $1379.00 Semco would have been $453.00

Comment on Is “Enjoy The City” Fundraising Program a Scam? by Business Owner

Thu, 09 Jan 2014 00:35:26 +0000

I am a business owner whose coupons were placed in the book without authorization. I WAS contacted by Enjoy The City, discussed their program with them, then opted out. THen.......the coupons started showing up. Offering significant discounts. Of course, out of courtesy to the customers we honored the first couple until we could try to resolve the issue with the company... or find out if another store had authorized or initiated the coupon and there was a mistake in the location listing. We have tried SEVERAL times to contact Enjoy the City; email, phone, facebook. In fact, we even plugged in a random extension to try to get through to a real person. When a "real" person answered, we stated our business, we were hung up on. So.... I do not know if this is a "scam" persay; however, I would say that they most likely are overselling their books and underselling the contents. When they do no have enough, most likely they place "past" ads in, assuming businesses-mostly chains- will simply accept the coupons. I call this fraudulent business practices that leave the consumer lacking what they contracted and paid for; and placing a 3rd party (discounting business) at odds with their customer.

I just had a real eye opening experience! I fell for the awesome low price tactic throws out there. I purchased many certificates, since there was no expiration date involved and we knew one restaurant in particular was a hot spot and not going anywhere. Well, what I didn't know was, the restaurant that we had previously used the certificates at chose to drop them and now I'm left with about 21 certificates for Country Meadows in Elizabethtown, PA, 2 for Ice Cream Heaven in Harrisburg, PA (they dropped the deal almost as soon as I bought theirs) and 3 from the Stony Creek Inn in Dauphin, PA. I tried to reach about this matter and it didn't matter which # I would press, it would go directly to a recording saying the line was busy at this time, please try your call again later and disconnect! I have tried and tried, thinking I will not ever reach a live person to discuss this matter! Consider myself ripped off....but they continue to send their fantastic offers to my email address....Happy New Year to me. I'm done with this crap!

My kids have sold these for years in Bham, AL & we've never had a problem using coupons. Merchants are obligated legally to Enjoy The City at abide by rules & honor the coupons. Contact publisher of your local book and see if they will step in.

I worked for Jones 5yrs and was "discharged" due to my "inability to do job" "performance". I was below expectations due to an injury and missed time from work. They generously offered me the customary time off but only as a full month and without any pay, regardless of what would come into the branch or trails...Best Company to Work for?, thanks for caring!!!i I was in alot of pain and did what i could to take care of the clients without taking off a month. Ironically just prior to this I was sharing with my two-faced RL some of my concerns with the stress of the job. I think they thought I was likely leaving so fired me at first opportunity and wouldn't cut me any slack due to the injury. They are as ruthless as any firm. Dont let the nice, likely new, advisor you are working with unknowingly fool you. Jones hires people with good character and mostly with teaching or sales background. It's true, education is irrelevant. they hire people they think other people will easily trust (why they try so hard to hire women, then don't tell them about the non existent work/life balance. Anything positive you read about w/l balance is by some home office associate with way better and cheaper EJ self-insured insurance). These sincere newbies who meet prospects on their doorstep and build trusting relationships unknowingly are being used big time by jones. They are just marketing and EJ reputation building whores. If they lose their good character due to greed or to salvage their reputation in their hometown (where jones will encourage you to prospect and open a branch for THEM based on YOUR work etihic and charactert, congratulations you will have a career at jones. if not they will fire you ir you will quit and Jones will call your clients and send letters and smear your U12 and humiliate you after they gave sucked you dry. they are worse than any big Wall Street firm because they pretend to be something they are not. they are vampires haha. Will run the nice former teacher or accountant right out of their own town. believe it!!! You will have worked easily 50-60hrs per week sellibg on the jones reputation (which is really your reputation). They will take all the credit for the care you gave clients They dont care about you, uf your smart you swollow your pride and quit. otherwise if you dont become a mega producer they will fire you but not untill you've done a ton of free marketing for the firm and Jones improves their reputation, like a vampire, sucking the goodness out of the people. Never met a single trustworthy person whose tenure exceeded 3-4 yrs.

If you make online payment for any of your bills make sure to check your bank account statement to make sure the payment came out of YOUR account. My guy just found out the past years credit card payments done online came out of someone else's account somehow. Guess what company?

I have been trying to get to STOP harrasing me at my office. I have been trying to protect our restaurants from this scam and he is the single most annoying and worst telemarketer on the planet. If you say "yes" at any point in the conversation they take that as a verbal agreement and sign up the company. So YES companies sign up with without knowing because someone like me (who answers phones) is tricked into the correct words. I get at least one call a week, even after we said do not call again, remove us from the list! RESTAURANTS.COM IS EVIL, AND A TOTAL SCAM!!

Edward Jones does not have proprietary accounts so EDJ FA's would not sell "edward jones products." I do work for them as an FA, not very long, but I do know that we do not have an in house products. The lack of proprietary accounts at EDJ was one of the features that attracted me to this company. The FA's that I have met have been very willing to help out a newbie so this company really does like by the 'family' motto.
