ENMAX Warns Consumers About Door-to-Door Sales

    CALGARY, March 19 /CNW/ - ENMAX Energy Corporation is warning residential
consumers to be wary of door-to-door salesmen who represent themselves as
ENMAX employees.
    "We've been getting increasing reports about unscrupulous sales people
coming to customers' homes and misrepresenting themselves as agents of ENMAX.
We want to be perfectly clear to everyone that ENMAX does not employ
door-to-door sales people in the residential consumer market, nor have we for
several years," said ENMAX President and CEO Gary Holden. "Anyone representing
themselves this way most certainly does not have the customer's interest at
    The company pointed out that sales personnel go door-to-door in the small
business and commercial markets, but that no residential households are part
of that program.
    Over the past several months, ENMAX has been made aware of several
customer complaints regarding door-to-door sales. Most recently, these
individuals have presented fraudulent identification that identifies them as
employees of ENMAX.
    "We feel it's important for customers to be aware of this situation, so
they can be forewarned," remarked Vice President of Public Affairs Peter Hunt.
"We want people to know that ENMAX does not send sales people to Albertan
households. Every Alberta resident should also be sure not to sign any kind of
agreement in haste or without thoroughly checking out the company they are
contracting with and the plans and options available to them."
    Customers are encouraged to report any such occurrences to the Alberta
Utilities Consumer Advocate at www.ucahelps.gov.ab.ca.
