Dennis Horton from Rockford's chapter of the Better Business Bureau joined the show to give us some good advice on avoiding a scam. 

You should listen to Dennis but the basics of this scam are people showing up to your door claiming to represent different energy companies and are offering to lower your utility bills.

Dennis' main bit of advice is to think before you sign anything. That will help you in most cases. He has some specific advice for this situation, however. Things like checking their identification and knowing that you NEVER have to show your bill to anyone else could save you some time and money in the future.
