Is Utility Management Association a Scam?

Can a company like Utility Management Association be a scam? I wonder, because in fact they got financing from companies like GE and Wells Fargo.

I'd call the BBB (better business bureau)and ask if any complaints have been filed against them.

First off I have never heard of them. If you go to and put in "Utility Management Association" the first thing that comes up is a complaint...even before the link for their official site. On their official site on the left is a link for them being in good standing with "Online Business Bureau"...never heard of that and it comes up with complaints/scam. Looked up UMA on the BBB site and they aren't accredited through them at all.

On any business if you google the name of company then add: scam or complaints or review etc it should give you a good idea of how they stand. When typing UMA's name into google search box before I even finished typing the auto complete had already suggested scam, BBB so apparently others are having the same questions about them.

Call your state's Public Service Commission. We had a scam in our state a few years ago with one of the natural gas providers. The other company who enrolled people for lower rates were scammers, and they worked out a deal with our local provider.
