    They say they are an independent energy collective, organisation.
    Additionally they charge no fee to customers and say also they get a fee from energy companies.

    Where they seem to differ from other collectives is that once a "winner" is selected then customers details e-mail address will be passed on and the supplier will then cont.act the potential customer direct. There is no further dealings with the milkman ( rather silly name methinks)
    They also make a point in saying that all customers details are deleted from their data base, and that they do not sell on information.

    So there you have it their registration does not involve giving them any financial information.

    Might give it a try.

    A company i haven't seen before. I can't see who this switch is powered by, but there are 11 days left to register for this collective switch. I note it says they hold monthly auctions. To be tried and tested, i haven't used them before, so don't blame me.

    Anyone remember Ben Scammell and his pipeline card?

    Best to keep to the comparison sites included in the MSE articles.

    The site has been spammed here before - it's an affilaite site to the Ofgem accredited comparison site MyUtilityGenius.co.uk

    Looks like they have tried even harder to disguise this fact since the last time it was spammed here.

    (Trouble is, some of us have very long memories )

    Following copied from Scamadviser.com. Hopefully they will not mind me quoting the following from their article.

    How did milkmanenergy.com get a Trust Score of 80% ?
    When checking milkmanenergy.com we looked at many factors, such as the ownership details, location, popularity and other sites relating to reviews, threats, phishing etc. Although a site like may have a high trust rating, it's worth just checking the countries involved as these could indicate that goods would be shipped from abroad rather than your home country.

    The internet is populated with many fake and scam sites - with many being created daily purely to look genuine. Even many review sites are tainted with fake reviews making it almost impossible for somedbody to detect a safe site from a scam. We attempt to analyse the website information and provide a trust guide that will help you determine the risk rating of .

    I also received my quote from mikman energy, again for me the E-On was the best deal,but again it was not available to me as an existing customer.

    The new tariff was slightly more than my current one but I would have gone with it,to get the extra period of fix.

    This tactic by E-On seems to be the future trend with collectives, very annoying.
