***Possible Telephone Fraud Alert *** Caution

There is a company currently making telephone contact throughout Seminole County. They identified themselves as American Renewable Energy Association. They offer to send a technician to your residence to check for energy efficiency. They say there is no cost to you, the homeowner, and you could receive $4000 from the Federal government pursuant to a "stimulus package."

When asked for their corporate address and they would not provide it for security reasons.

A records search indicated that they are a disbanned corporation as of 2004, and that they are not currently registered to do business in the State of Florida.

The company call generates from one of many different cell phone numbers (i.e., 407-920-4590) that provides no company information.

Please research any company PRIOR to allowing them to come into your residence. Please spread the word about this possible scam to friends and neighbors. An on-line complaint was filed with the Attorney General's Office. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.
