If these people come to your door call 311. These are working for IDT Energy and are going door to door at this very moment in Carroll Gardens trying to get information from people so they can switch people from Con Ed to IDT without their consent or knowledge. The employees may or may not know what the company is doing. These photos were sent to us by PMFA blogger Katia Kelly who watches her neighborhood closely and loves it dearly. She has a post up about it too. Check out the dude below. A little camera shy?

    I’m pretty sure they don’t know what they’re doing but someone should tell them.

    They were in Windsor Terrace a week or two ago. Had the guy spoken english better I may have fallen for their tricks. But seriously, do they think it’s okay to go door to door asking people for copies of their energy bills? Is that even legal?
