June 14, 2016 [Complaint No: [redacted]]  – [redacted] Account # [redacted]   COMPLAINT SUMMARY:   Ms. [redacted] states she is being contacted by a collection agency regarding a debt owed to Direct Energy. She states she paid the final bill. Ms. [redacted] states after the payment she...

received no further bills from Direct Energy.   COMPANY RESPONSE:   Ms. [redacted] had been a Direct Energy customer at [redacted] since October 31, 2011.   On March 1, 2016, Ms. [redacted] remitted payment in the amount of $187.00 via our Interactive Voice Response (IVR) phone system. The payment left Ms. [redacted] with an account balance of $128.78.   On March 2, 2015, Ms. [redacted] requested a Move Out due to a move. We are currently unable to locate the call to determine if a forwarding address was given. No account notes reflect any further contact from Ms. [redacted].   On March 6, 2015, she was mailed a final invoice for the amount of $224.76. This invoice included current consumption charges of $95.98, and a previous balance of $128.78. This invoice was mailed to Ms. [redacted]’ account service address.   On May 21, 2015, the final unpaid balance was forwarded to a to a third party collection agency.   On June 26, 2015 and July 24, 2015, records reflect Ms. [redacted] remitting payments in the amount of $37.46 to the third party agency, leaving her with a remaining balance of $149.84.   Between June 8, 2016 and June 14, 2016, a complaint analyst has communicated the above information via email with Ms. [redacted]. While Ms. [redacted] feels she is not responsible for the debt in its entirety, the analyst advised that Direct Energy would write off the consumption charges of $95.98 from her final invoice; however, she would be responsible for the remaining amount of $53.86, as these charges were assessed and communicated via invoice prior to her move. This is the final resolution.   If Ms. [redacted] has any further questions regarding this matter, Direct Energy would be more than happy to discuss this matter further.

Good Afternoon, Attached is the response for your review.  Thank you,

COMPLAINT SUMMARY:
 
[redacted] states she contacted Direct Energy (DE) on May
13,...

2015 to inquire about an [redacted] Delivery Charge for $80.53.  Ms. [redacted] states she was advised the charge
is an [redacted] charge to delivery electricity to her premise.  She states she feels the charge does not give
enough detail because it is not broken down. 
Ms. [redacted] states she contacted DE on April 22, 2015 to inquire when
she would receive an online reward she signed up for in via her online account
manager.  She states she should receive a
$25 reward and be provided an explanation of the [redacted] Delivery Charge.
 
SUMMARY OF INVESTIGATION:
 
Direct Energy (DE) confirms [redacted]
[redacted] and Brian [redacted] have been customers at [redacted] since September 16, 2004. 
 
On April 23, 2015 Ms. [redacted] completed
an online renewal for a 24 month Free Power Saturday plan with an average price
of $0.085/kWh and an Energy Charge for $0.060/kWh.  The Electrical Facts Label (EFL) was mailed
to Ms. [redacted] which details the [redacted] Delivery Charges of $5.25 per month and
$0.0329/kWh.  A copy of the EFL sent to
the customer and her online renewal is attached.
 
On April 27, 2015 Ms. [redacted] opted into
the Shoppers Reward Program through her online account manager.  The customer will be notified of the first
reward eligibility after 6 months of on-time payments from the reward selection
date. An email will be issued that prompts her to select the gift card.  At present, Ms. [redacted] has not met the
criteria to receive the reward.
 
On May 12, 2015 an invoice was processed
for $145.38, due May 29, 2015.  A copy is
attached.
 
Ms. [redacted] contacted customer service
on May 13, 2015 to inquire about her delivery charges.  She asked to speak to a supervisor and was
transferred.  The account was reviewed;
however, Ms. [redacted] stated she was not told about the delivery charges when
she selected her rate online.  She wanted
a breakdown to the penny of the charges and it was explained that information
is a tariff rate and is submitted monthly to DE from [redacted] for billing. 
 
On May 14, 2014 a Revdex.com
complaint was received and a hold was placed on the account.
 
Ms. [redacted] was reached on May 18,
2015.  The EFL she received was
reviewed.  Charges detailed in the EFL
for [redacted] Electric Delivery Charges are $5.25 per month and $0.0329/kWh.  The calculation using her invoiced kWh was
provided and she was satisfied with the explanation.
 
Ms. [redacted] was advised she has not yet
reached her 6 month eligibility time frame to be notified of a reward.  When 6 months of on-time payments from the
reward selection date of April 27, 2015 is reached she will be notified to
select her choice of a reward.  Ms.
[redacted] stated she understood the Reward criteria.
 
COMPANY RESPONSE:
 
Direct Energy (DE) has verified that Ms. [redacted] selected and
renewed on-line April 23, 2015.  She was
emailed the Electricity Facts Label confirming her selection of a 24 month Free
Saturday rate. 
 
Ms. [redacted] opted into a Shoppers Reward program on April 27,
2015.  When 6 months of on-time payments
are received, Ms. [redacted] will receive notification in to select her reward of
choice. 
 
The resolution was provided to Ms. [redacted] on the telephone by the
analyst and she confirmed her understanding and agreed with the explanation.
 
Direct Energy (DE) prides itself on maintaining and exceeding a
high level of customer service, and we regret anything that may be considered
below satisfactory. If [redacted] has any further questions regarding
this matter, DE would be more than happy to discuss
this resolution further.

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID [redacted], and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint.  This is bogus. Last year my bill was never this high. Why are they all of a sudden charging additional fees without notifying me. I am being forced to be without AC.I do not wash not dry. And I am literally without using any light and still I'm being charged more than when I used my heater this past winter. Why did these charges incur when last yr I was paying much less. When did [redacted] notify us of these additional charges. Now I have contacted [redacted] and they direct me to A&P. I have also emailed them several times and until one hour ago I received an email from [redacted] Look at my past bills..if you claim that you have always billed this way then why don't my past bills reflect those charges?

Account # [redacted]
 
COMPLAINT SUMMARY:
Ms. [redacted] states due to a Direct Energy system error her service
was disconnected. She states she paid her bill online and was then asked to
prove her payment by providing bank statements. Ms. [redacted] states she was
without service overnight and lost all of her groceries. She states she feels she
should be reimbursed for this loss due to the error being on the side of Direct
Energy.
 
COMPANY RESPONSE:
Direct Energy records confirm that Ms.
[redacted] previously held a postpaid account with Direct Energy and then moved to
our prepaid product. During this transition the proper account number was not
updated within our payment processing system. This caused Ms. [redacted]’s payments
to be routed to her previous postpaid account and created a negative balance on
her prepaid account that caused a disruption of service.
 
Bank statements are always requested
when attempting to locate missing payments, but were not needed due to further
research revealed the payment system issue. Direct Energy reached out to Ms.
[redacted] on [redacted] and advised her that the issue had been resolved and
that she would be provided a $75.00 credit for the loss of food or she would be
allowed to submit receipts for her losses should they be greater than $75.00.
Ms. [redacted] accepted the $75.00 credit as an acceptable resolution.
 
Direct Energy prides itself on maintaining and exceeding a high
level of customer service, and we regret anything that may be considered below
satisfactory. If Ms. [redacted] has any further questions regarding this matter, Direct Energy would be more than happy to discuss
this matter further.

SUMMARY
OF INVESTIGATION:
 
On May 19, 2015, Mr. [redacted] contacted our Enrollment
Center stating he applied online on May 18, 2015, to switch services to Direct

but was advised by the enrollment agent the account number was invalid.  The agent processed a new enrollment and
provided Mr. [redacted] with account number [redacted].  The agent further states the new enrollment
was flagged for additional verification by the Direct Energy Credit and Debt
Team.  The agent advised Mr. [redacted] to
submit a copy of his Social Security Card and Driver’s License for further
review.
 
On May 19, 2015, Direct Energy received notification
the enrollment was unsuccessful due to a fraud alert for the above mentioned
address.
 
On May 20, 2015, a Direct Energy credit analyst
attempted to contact Mr. [redacted] regarding the credit exception.
 
On May 20, 2015, a Direct Energy credit analyst
spoke with Mr. [redacted] and requested a fax copy of his Social Security Card and
Driver’s License. The agent further stated once the requested information was
verified he would be notified of the enrollment completion, and deposit
requirement if applicable.
 
On May 20, 2015, a credit analyst notified Mr. [redacted]
that no deposit is required.  The analyst
confirmed the second enrollment was a success.
 
On June 30, 2015, Direct Energy invoiced Mr. [redacted]
for 310 kWh of usage received from [redacted] in the amount of $31.18, due by June
22, 2015.
 
On June 11, 2015, an online payment in the amount of
$31.18 posted to inactive account [redacted].
 
On July 3, 2015, our Collections Department
contacted Mr. [redacted] regarding a past due balance in the amount of $31.18.  Mr. [redacted] advised the agent the payment of
$31.18 was made online on June 12, 2015. 
In addition, Mr. [redacted] provided payment reference number 1[redacted].  The agent advised Mr.
[redacted] the payment of $31.18 posted to an inactive account.  The agent further stated the payment of
$31.18 would be transferred to the correct account number of [redacted].  Mr. [redacted] further stated following a password
reset he was unable to access his online account.  The agent advised Mr. [redacted] to speak with our
Customer Care Center regarding difficulty accessing his online account.  Our records reflect Mr. [redacted] was transferred
to customer service.
 
On July 3, 2015, Mr. [redacted] spoke to a customer
service agent.  He stated he made a
payment to an inactive account. Mr. [redacted] further stated he experienced
difficulty updating the username for his online account.  The agent advised Mr. [redacted] our records reflect
the username already exists.  Mr. [redacted]
requested to speak with a supervisor. 
Our records reflect the call was transferred to a supervisor.
 
On July 3, 2015, Mr. [redacted] requested a new username
for his online account.  The agent stated
we are unable to accommodate his request for a new username as the username he
requested was taken.  The agent
reiterated a transfer was in progress to transfer a payment of $31.18 to the
correct account.  Mr. [redacted] stated his
dissatisfaction with the process and ended the call.
 
On July 7, 2015, a payment in the amount of $31.18
was transferred from inactive account number [redacted] to active account
[redacted].
 
A complaint analyst attempted to contact Mr. [redacted]
on July 7, 2015, July 8, 2015, and July 10, 2015; however, was unsuccessful in
contacting him.  Voicemail messages were
left requesting he contact the analyst. To date the analyst has not received a
return call.
 
COMPANY
RESPONSE:
 
Mr.
[redacted] completed an enrollment on May 19, 2015, for premise [redacted]
S, Fort Worth, [redacted]-[redacted]. However, the enrollment was postponed due to a
fraud alert for the aforementioned address. 
On May 20, 2015, a Direct Energy credit analyst requested Mr. [redacted]
submit a copy of his Social Security Card and Driver’s License. Once the
information was verified the enrollment was processed.  Due to agent error a second enrollment was processed
which resulted in the creation of a second account number [redacted]. The
creation of the second account caused the initial account [redacted] to become
inactive.  On July 7, 2015, the payment
of $31.84 was transferred to the active account [redacted].  In addition, per Mr. [redacted] initial username was
reinstated.

COMPLAINT
SUMMARY:
 
Ms.
[redacted] states after enrolling services, she was disconnected three days later. Ms.
[redacted] states she received a $50.00 credit; however, is seeking...

further
compensation due to the food loss which occurred, while she was without service
for one day.
 
SUMMARY
OF INVESTIGATION:
 
Mr. [redacted] contacted Direct Energy on July 27, 2015
and established services for [redacted]. Services were
established the following day on July 28, 2015.
 
Previously, services were established under a
different Direct Energy account holder, [redacted], who occupied the premise
along with Mr. and Ms. [redacted].
 
While services became active under Mr. [redacted]’ newly
established account, Ms. [redacted]’s account did not finalize until July 29, 2015.
Due to timing, Ms. [redacted] transferred services to a new premise, which generated
a Move Out for the premise shortly before the account finalized. As a result,
services were disconnected on July 30, 2015.
 
After Ms. [redacted] spoke with a Direct Energy agent,
services were re-established the following day.
 
Since the account establishment, Mr. and Ms. [redacted] were
issued two invoices on August 4, 2015, for services between July 28, 2015 and
August 3, 2015.
 
A complaint agent spoke with Ms. [redacted] on August 6,
2015 to discuss the matter. The agent agreed to write off the amount of $40.93,
the combined amount of the invoices issued on August 4, 2015. Because Ms. [redacted]
was disconnected for more than twenty four hours, the agent offered further
compensation by placing a $300.00 credit on her account. Ms. [redacted] was
satisfied.
 
COMPANY
RESPONSE:
 
Mr.
[redacted] established services at for [redacted] on July
27, 2015, which had previously been established under another Direct Energy
account; Ms. [redacted]’ services became effective the following day. The existing
Direct Energy account, for the same premise, had not finalized transferring
services to the new premise, as a result when the Move Out order was
successfully completed on the account Mr. [redacted]’ service was disconnected.
Services were reconnected the following day, once Direct Energy was made aware
of the situation.  A $300.00 credit for
food spoilage was applied to Mr. [redacted]’ account, and Ms. [redacted] was satisfied.
 
A
complaint agent spoke with Ms. [redacted] on August 6, 2015 and provided our
resolution.
 
Direct
Energy prides itself on maintaining a high level of customer service, and we
regret anything that may have been considered unsatisfactory. If Mr. and Ms.

v

Revdex.com:
I have reviewed...

the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID [redacted], and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint.  
I found no response attached in the email I was sent. Other than that, I was contacted by the company on Thursday October 1, 2015. Their representative offered no resolution to the problem other than to offer the same response I received initially. I tried to make her understand that I was well aware that I signed a contract that stated there would be a fee for the thermostats if I ended the term early. However, when their salesman informed me that I could potentially be charged by [redacted] for the thermostats, I asked if the fee would be waived if I returned the items. He said yes. Any information I read following the salesman's claim that I could return the thermostats was not fully understood as I was under the impression that the thermostats should simply be returned before cancelling service. Also, [redacted] stresses that they do not have a cancellation fee. This is not the case, either. Their cancellation fee is $200 for their thermostats, even though it isn't framed that way. What's more, the [redacted] salesman looked at my bill and said that the rate they charged was cheaper, and he also claimed to be a "preferred provider" of First Energy/Toledo Edison company which was not the case. I feel like the entire sales call was disingenuous and misleading. I do not doubt a bit of ignorance on my part with the entire process of switching utility suppliers, and trusted that this man from a supposed reputable company would be the consultant he was intended to be and at least offer honesty and if nothing else, full knowledge of his product before selling it. Their solution of giving me a phone number to call Nest to attempt to return it is not acceptable. They need to waive the $200 fee, and hopefully, accept return of the merchandise.
