Default Summit Energy Scam

Hello. My fiance and I recently purchased our first house and were contacted by a man claiming to be from Enbridge. After him stating he needed to see our bill and such, we ended up signed up for Summit Energy. It was approved two days ago and when I called today to find out if we were actually signed up for it, and we were, I requested to cancel. The man told me the penalty to cancel will be anywhere from $100-$1000. I told him we wouldn't be paying that as we did not agree to this and he said to get a lawyer.

I had noticed in past forums from 2007 and 2008 there are members who have had this run-in with the door to door salesman and was curious about what everybody did to stop their 'contract' from happening. I saw one post from someone saying once you receive your written agreement you have (10) days to cancel - how come this guy didn't tell me that on the phone??

Please - if anyone has any information that can help us let us know!
