Moving House? How I was Duped by the Energy Rip-off.

Have you ever felt like you’ve spent more money than you should when moving house? Maybe that’s because you’re like me. My name is Sean and I, like many others before me, just got taken for an energy ride whilst moving house. Like any poor sucker who has had to deal with the logistical nightmare of moving house, I was completely overwhelmed with the seemingly never-ending list of things to do when relocating home for the first time. That’s why when my real estate agent (Tania) offered a solution to get me connected to electricity and gas via DirectConnect I didn’t hesitate to pounce on her offer.

Tania was lovely, she laughed at my sub-par jokes, always arrived on time and assisted me superbly with my moving home endeavours. Unfortunately, I later found out, just like the pretty girl at the bar trying to lure you in to get a free drink, that her intentions were misleading (to say the least).

Later, through comparing with Energy Umpire, I realised that not only was I not on the best plan from the providers I had, but also there were much cheaper providers.

After Energy Umpire informed me of this “double whammy” I was on the wrong end of, I started to question why sweet, dear Tania would conduct such a traitorous act. To my surprise, after I signed that slip of paper, Tania was skipping and laughing all the way to the bank, cashing in a nice juicy commission cheque for her misguiding services. Direct Connect quote benefits to their partners that “rewards you and your team with competitive and flexible commissions” according to their website.

After receiving my comparison with Energy Umpire I found out I could be saving $160 on my gas bill and $368 on electricity after switching to the best energy suppliers available.
