Telemarketing Harassment

Now they are calling themselves Solar USA. When I told him I was on the National Do Not Call List and would report them to the FTC, he said good luck on that. Of course the calling number is spoofed so it does no good to report to the FTC and they know it.

Solar Sale USA has no affiliation with Solar USA. Solar Sale does not telemarket.

All customers we contact filled out a form and provided their information to us. We recommend reporting the numbers that called you to the FTC.

Cursed out for asking them to stop calling

I have been receiving multiple calls from someone named Jason saying he was calling from Solar USA. When I asked him to take my number off the call list he told me to go **** myself! When I tried to contact the company the phone number on their website was no good and the e-mail would not go through! The person calling was hijacking similar number so it would appear local.

Solar Sale Usa - My Solar Journey
I talked to Josh for about a year. I had a lot of questions, but Josh was patient with me. The Tennessee Valley Authority had a lot of hoops to jump through but Josh helped to navigate through them all. I was pleasantly surprised when Josh actually showed up to supervise the installation. They took their time and did it right. We are very happy with the excellent product, and the excellent service. I could not recommend Josh and solar sale more highly.

Solar USA is doing the exact same thing to me. They will call 5times a day and they hijack phone numbers so you don't know they are calling and they call on different numbers all the time so blocking any number has no effect because they change hijacked numbers all the time. I registered a complaint with the FCC but that has not helped.

Guest

Get a very loud metal whistle ( better yet an air horn). When they call give them a blast.

01/08/2016 I talked to Josh for about a year. I was building a new home. I had a lot of questions, but Josh was patient with me. The Tennessee Valley Authority had a lot of hoops to jump through but Josh helped to navigate through them all. I was pleasantly surprised when Josh actually showed up to supervise the installation since was in Atlanta. They took their time and did it right. We are very happy with the excellent product, and the excellent service. I could not recommend Josh and solar sale usa more highly. I will be glad to discuss my project with anyone interested in working with Josh Barnes. D.Mack

There are many companies with Solar & USA in their title. We apologize for the inconvenience but Solar Sale USA is not the company making calls to your condo.

Next time they call, make sure you ask the full company name and address.

They have called me 77 times in the last 90 days. They will not stop calling even though being told to stop each time.

I am now talking to an attorney to sue them for harassment. Worst company ever.

Not even one good review either. Hope my lawyer has good luck collecting from these deadbeats.

Guest

These people will drive you crazy with their persistent phone calls and deny that they have called 4 times in one day and continue to call most days. I am trying to ge3t rid of them. They are rude and willingly try to argus with you

Guest

I have been contacted many times by this company and they have been rude and denied I told them to stop calling. Sometimes they call three times a day.

I filed with the do not call list complaints but like the rest of our government, they seem to be worthless.

Finding where they phone from and storming the building would work and I will join any group willing to go to them and confront them at the work place and disconnect any communication they have. If the police won't do anything about them, why would they care what we do.

Guest

Its indirectly started by searching on Google. I just recently searched about solar panels after buying a Harbor freight solar panel set.

Then I started to see the ads werepopup on websites, pointing to Solar companies. Not the phone calls.

YI bet you did a search on Google and you get this ***. Its all about money and the internet, providers and everyone in the industry is making money from it.

Guest

Just got a call from these guys on THREE DIFFERENT NUMBERS in the last 2 hours. How do I know?

I googled the numbers and it all tells me the same thing - Solar Sale USA.

So if you get a call from these guys, AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. They're sketchy as *** and should not be trusted.

Guest

This company took $500 deposit from me, cashed the check within 24 hours. I didn't get the loan needed so I called them back telling them I needed to wait because I didn't get the loan and asked for my $500 back.

It took them 2 1/2 months to give me $250, saying the other half will be in a week. Another 2 weeks past and i send him another email asking where the *** is my money or I'll contact legal authorities. I get a response saying "it'll cost more to seek legal means" and now I'll get the rest of my money before Xmas (2 more weeks).

It's been 3 months!

And, by the way, Solar Sale USA is not accredited by BBB. I checked because I was going to complain to them.

Guest

They just called from 559-512-**** a few minutes ago.

I don't usually touch unknown calls with a 20 foot pole but my parents live in that area code and I thought it may have been them. It wasn't.

Same east Indian guy with Solar USA. I hung up after he said who he was.

Another one for the list...

I just got a call from a guy from Solar USA. Guy had an Indian accent and he switched me to two other people.

I was dumb enough to talk to them. I gave them my address but not my email. They already had my number so I guess they had me from some *** list they obtained. Since I can't find any information on the company and the callback number is bogus...

(it seems to be routed somewhere and it a lady answers and says she is from Solar USA but she can't hear me so she hangs up). Not sure I want to do business with a company that I cannot find any info on so all future contact with them will be met with the cold dark stare.

Guest

With any scam, there's a scammer and a mark. The scammer is like a Democrat.

He or she wants to redistribute your wealth from YOU to THEM. Someone from a company calling itself SolarUSA called us today from a Fresno number (559-512-****), saying the company wanted to provide us with "FREE" solar panels and equipment.

Generally, when someone calls me and wants to give me something for nothing, a huge red flag pops up. Moi??

Free??

The person calling me had a strong accent, but he then quickly put on his supervisor. (Frankly, I'm tired of getting these guys from India calling to tell me they're from Microsoft and that my computer's infected; or that they're from the IRS and are going to come to my door and arrest me (with the local police) if I don't make a minimum payment...and guess what? They take credit cards!

I just need one company, with an IRS agent who can fix my taxes, clear up my computer infestation and do it all using solar energy!

Guest

Solar does not cost nearly as much as these guys say it does. This company tries to rip people off.

CROOKS!!SOLAR SALE USA/INTOWN SOLAR/US POWERSOLUTIONS

Dont be fooled these three Companies are all owned by the same Crooks! They took my $500 five months ago and have not contacted me since. Solar Sale USA/ Intown Solar/ US Power Solutions DONT BE FOOLED LIKE I WAS!!!! You must be aware of these owners of these Companies. I know $500 might not be a lot of money to some but it was to me. I had wanted Solar for the longest and then this happened to me. I cant even to begin to explain how angry I was and then they will not return my calls or anything. Please just be aware of this Company and its owners Josh Barnes and "Andy" Andrew Moore. Philip P.

If you really care then honor the DO NOT CALL registry. But you don't. That alone proves that YOU DON"T CARE.
