I had a cold call from a Money Expert door knocker today, looking to save me money on my Gas and Electric.

He did not display his ID properly until I asked for it. It was facing his chest, rather than facing me. I can't say whether the ID was genuine or not though.

The guy was pushy - wouldn't take no for an answer.

A little rude - rolled his eyes more than once, and said "I can't believe you don't want to save money!" That's like telling me I must be stupid. He bad mouthed certain suppliers, including the one I'm currently with. And called one of my neighbours weird.

Flexible with the truth - "I don't represent any suppliers, I'm only here to save YOU money". He avoided my question about being targeted to sign up for a specific supplier. The research I have done since has shown me they ARE targeted in this way.
He dropped a couple of names and when I told him I had no idea who these people were, he told me they are my neighbours. I told him that I don't know the names of my neighbours, we all keep pretty much to ourselves. He then gave me 3 house numbers and told me the first 2 had signed up and the 3rd one was the "weird" one I mentioned before.
I later introduced myself to one of the first 2 who told me that she had not signed up and neither had the other person.

I told him I would not sign anything without doing research first, he offered to show me all the 5 star Trust Pilot reviews on his tablet. He also told me that I wouldn't be signing up to his recommended company, Boost, today, I would just be going through some kind of check to make sure I could switch. Like I've not heard that one before.
