Amigo Energy= scum! talked my 80 year old mom into a contract several years ago at. 16 cents per kilowatt hour. I did not know of this, but at the time this was about 6 cents higher that anyone else.. AND STILL IS LESS ANYWHERE!!!
They took advantage of an old lady. As soon as that contract was over I switched her to another company.
If you decide to use this company, please read your contract carefully. Note your billing cycle. I have found their billing to be sporadic at best.

I will be paying the $150 to go back to TXU it was so bad.
DALLAS -- This company has raised my electric rate in a predatory manner. My rate was increased by 136.53% in only a few months time, without notice and without warning! My payments were never late (Automatically deducted) and my service or credit did not change during this time. I have requested an explanation from Amigo on several occasions using both telephone and email, however, they never responded.

Apparently, this is common practice as there are many identical complaints on public web sites about Amigo Energy.
I believe Amigo Energy has committed a breach of contract and I am the victim of fraud and abusive billing practices.
STAY Away from this company at all costs. Also, if you se Mr Javier Antonio Vega in the Houston area or elswhere, say "Hi" to the POS Amigo CEO, or kudos if you run him over.
FORT WORTH, TEXAS -- Okay so I saw that someone else had the same damn problem as we did.. I got merged over to Amigo in June of 2008 and never got a bill until today and bam $467 and a rate of over 24 cents when I was also told they couldn't add more then 10%. What a bunch of a-holes.. Then I called to ask why my bill was so much and why did it take so long to get it and they tell me to contact my post office. Not only did I get one bill I got two one from July and the other for Aug.. Then they have the nerve to tell me they emailed me and sent bills..

I'm calling BBB tomorrow morning...
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- We were forcibly changed to Amigo Energy from NPC as NPC pulled out of Houston residential electrical service. The contract we have states they cannot raise the rate by more than 10% per month. Amigo would not send a bill or give a rate - when we finally cancelled/transferred we got a double month bill - a rate increase from 0.125 to 0.2469 per kwh. 3 days to pay or an additional late fee of $32.

This seems extremely bad practice and I have filed complaints with PUC and BBB.
Please watch out for this issue - it appears that I am not the only one Amigo Energy is ripping off.
