Additional Complaint Information

On January 15, 2013, BBB recognized a pattern of complaints from consumers regarding selling practice, service and customer service issues. Consumers allege they pay Savings & Recovery LLC a retainer fee ranging from $876 to $25,000 for an energy audit to save money on their utility bills. Consumers claim the company promises savings of 15% or more, or the retainer fee is refundable. Consumers allege even after providing all necessary documents, the company sends them a letter stating their account has been abandoned due to not providing necessary information. Consumers also claim any savings on their utility bills are due to climatic weather changes, not the company's services. Consumers allege when they ask for proof the company saved them money, Savings & Recovery LLC is unable to provide documentation. Consumers also claim they have difficulty getting in touch with the company, as the company does not return phone calls.
