Beware of intermediaries taking advantage of energy supplier closures

(Prague, 22 October 2021) The closure of some energy suppliers and the associated consumer uncertainty have opened up space for the activities of energy supply contract intermediaries. These are not energy suppliers, but only intermediaries who can contact households by phone or in person, claiming that due to the collapse of suppliers or the increase of energy prices, they will help consumers find a new supplier or switch to another supplier of their choice. Be careful when switching energy suppliers. Always pay attention to who you are about to enter into a contractual relationship with and whether you are sure they are a trustworthy partner. Distinguish between the energy supplier and the energy contract intermediary (broker).
