NERF

The National Energy Rebate Fund - as described and discussed at The Consumerist.



The guy being interviewed above (the one with his hand in front of the camera) went to high school with me. It seems that he's still pretty much a jerk...

Is this a federal program, or what the heck is it?

I'm thinking that it's a scam to get people to do business with the guy who comes to their door promising a great rebate.

There is probably some money flowing from the contractor to NERF, but it's not flowing much to the homeowner.

Grr.

It's worth noting, then, that the reporter doesn't even do a good job of specifying what he's reporting on, no?

Aggressive, yes. Thorough, no.

My blog article title, "NERF," is linked to the Consumerist article describing the abomination that is NERF.

It would be quite aggravating to be one of their clients.

I can see why they put the successful one's pictures on their website, though.
