Just received a text message that there is a package on hold - written in very poor, broken English, asking me to call (613) 225-4770. Glad I googled the number before calling back. Cards are being left in mailboxes announcing "Free! An exclusive offer for home owners!" TIDE - 64 LOADS! HURRY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST! .....on the bottom of these cards is this:
"Call Mon - Fri 10 am - 9 pm Sat 10am - 6pm To Claim Yours Call Now! (613) 225-4770 or 1-+1 877-214-1442 NO PURCHASE REQUIRED! ****Participation Rules*** No purchase required. For advertising purposes ONLY! Must be over 21, married or head of household. Subject to company rules and policies. Callers will be asked to simply view a new product and complete a short questionnaire to receive the supply of Tide. Sponsored by Breathe E-Z Homes Consumer Product Dept, Ottawa, ON K2E 6T9.

>>>Now why would you have to be married or head of household? And if you check that 877 number you'll see it comes up for telemarketers. This is just a way of getting your attention to do something that will give your personal contact info. A door will open up, flooding you with b.s. I guarantee it!
I bought machines off them I also work for them and both shammi and love deep are nothing but con artist have nothing to do with this company if you need a vacuum go and buy one at the store they're overpriced machines they do work well but very overpriced and these guys are the ones making the money they pay their employee sh*t piss and sh*t What planet did you come from? I want to ask u one question, and I would like an honest answer from you. Would you sell a Filter Queen product to someone you loved, like your Mother or your children. Wow... then you are one of a select few who has not been lied to or scammed, hmmm, or perhaps since you are being paid by them you are the designated Breathe EZ Homes socila media troll... I would like to share my horrifying experience with Breathe E-Z Home, Ottawa in case you’d like to look into it and/or warn local residents to be careful of this extremely shady business that is currently preying on vulnerable people in our neighborhoods.
My overall view is that they are huge scam artists- a look at their Facebook page will show others who have been scammed as well. I’d strongly advise people to not have anything to do with them, and to avoid their calls (613) 225-4770), especially their air quality survey. This warning is strong for vulnerable people that this business targets- namely students, they like to use them as free labor, women living alone, and elderly residents.
They are complete and total scammers. Avoid them and don’t buy or ever fill out any sweepstakes or entries or don't pick up any flyers at your door or mailbox to win a prize, total lies, it’s a way to get to your house. From my own experience, they have 2 ways to get to your house
1-They are at every expo hosted at the EY Centre in Ottawa under “Filter Queen” hosting fake contests. And also at:
the Palace Bridal Show Ottawa, Gatineau Auto Show, Shawn Centre, Golf Expo, Ottawa Boat show, RV show. Ottawa Home @ Garden Show, Ottawa Fall Homeshow, Ottawa convention, Run Ottawa Expo, Outdoor Show, National Women’s Show, Travel Show, Exhibitions and also at all the FAIRS in Ottawa and Gatineau.
They do end up calling you regardless and tell you that you have won a prize and they want it to bring the gift to you by sending a dishonest rep for you to listen to a 10 minutes demo on the product but it's a 2 hours rambling about a $3500 vacuum and a $1500 air purifier. They will send their aggressive salesperson Al or George or both at the same time.
2- Avoid their door-to-door sales, they come claiming doing a survey about air quality and give you a ticket to win a prize and ask your phone number, DON’T do it, they will call you the next day as a winner, everybody wins, it is a tactic to get to you to agree to a 10 minutes demo on an air purifier and you will have to sit through a presentation with a high-pressure sales rep, it’s a whole big scam of getting in your home to give you a 2 hours presentation on a vacuum and air purifier. As a woman who lives alone, I found this scary and invasive, and I felt unable to tell them to leave due to their aggressiveness.
I am so disappointed in myself to give in and by not seeing through their scams. I sincerely want to ensure that others don't fall for the pitch. Preying on local residents like this should be illegal, and I want to see them shut down and I will use all my power to do that and I will contact all the local newspapers in Ottawa and Gatineau to tell my bad experience with them.
SHAME ON YOU LOVEDEEP, SHAMMI, MIKE, AL AND GEORGE TO RIP PEOPLE OFF.
I have worked for the company for over 2 years in more then one position within the company. I find Shammi and Lovedeep are more professional then any other boss I have ever worked for. The company Filterqueen themselves have been in the business close to 90 years and are all over the world. I love working for Breathe EZ Homes! The environment is fantastic!! If you ever have an opportunity to join this business, it will be the best decision you have made, and the adventure you take with them will be one in a lifetime. These a**holes called my wife's cell phone and said we have an appointment with them tomorrow at 4pm and if we weren't home we'd still be charged. Never heard of Breathe EZ in my life but these scammers Lovedeep Chahal & Shammi Singh should be hung up by their balls in the town square. How the f*ck they got my wife's cell phone I'd like to know. Lowest of the low slime bags. Just got text from a (613) 209-4818 saying a pkg has shown up for my exact address (literally, my address is typed in) and to call (613) 225-4770.
I'm awaiting a pkg so thank god I googled the # first.
They just sent me a message saying it's an URGENT NOTICE for a package they have on hold me.
Glad I googled before calling.
I received a text on my cell telling me an important package was being held for me. SInce I'm expecting a package from the U.S. this week, I called the number provided, (613) 225-4770. It rang and rang and someone finally picked up with a simple "Hello": no company ID. This guy transferred me to a woman who identified the company as Breathe EZ only when I insisted. She told me I had helped them in a survey (I had not) and they had a package for me. I told her this was a scam and that she and her buddy should be ashamed of themselves. Came to the door with a "survey" to complete. My husband declined, then we received a call the next day with offers of three gifts to choose from, a trip, food chopper etc. We said no thanks again. Today we see their "Free" Tide 64 Load sample coupon on all the doors on our street. There will be strings attached - read the small print. Beware.

Exact same story as above. Did the survey, started getting the calls. Turns out I too won the daily draw. Booked an appt to have my free trip package delivered, giving them my address. Would have to sit through a demonstration. I normally am sort of rude to telemarketers, not sure how I got into this situation! Once I told my husband, he put the brakes on it and I called back to cancel. Someone did answer and was polite and everything. Hope this is the end of it. Be wary of people calling, nothing is free! They called my cell phone number yesterday and asked to do a survey. It sounded like a short easy survey, so I agreed to do complete it. They mentioned at the end of the call that for helping them out with the survey I had been entered into a draw to win some prizes. The very next day they called me saying I had my name came up in their draw and I could either choose between a hose, a vacation somewhere, and a blender. Only thing is you have to sit through a presentation, I think this tactic is very deceptive. In this way it is not really a draw because it seems to me, and reading all the comments here, that everyone seems to win. I just saw a job add and looked into this companymIs this a filterqueen vaccum sales Scam?I hard about this SCAM going on in all over Ontario.Guys be aware and let the Ottawa police know. Here is a number to report this company to,1 +1 888-459-8501 Don't be shy. I dont know what the reason your girlfriend told you as to why she didn't complete the equity program but the only reason people don't complet the program is laziness. It's not a program where you sit on your a** and get free machines, you have to work for them, she just got lazy, I've been working at breathe ez homes for over 2 years now and I completed the equity program 4 times, I got 12 free machines that I'm proud to say, helped a lot of my family with their health I worked for this company for two years both in the marketing department (on the phones) and as a sales/advertising representative who went to the appointments, handed out the prizes, and presented the products. Although not an honest or ethical organization by any means, it was not a SCAM. Anyone who receives this phone call WILL be given the gift of their choice at no cost so long as they view the presentation. Obviously the intent here is to sell the units, but it is true that there is no obligation, and nobody is going to take a penny from you if you choose not to buy the system. I completely understand the frustration of receiving marketing calls, but you need to remember that on the other line is- believe it or not- actually a person too. When I worked on the phones for this company, I was 16, living on my own, and trying to pay my bills. I was always friendly and never pushy. Making these calls was how I supported myself. I worked several holidays and often got screamed and cursed at for disturbing people's Thanksgiving lunches and whatnot- something that I didn't urgently want to do for my own twisted pleasure, but that I had to so that I could make my hourly wage and pay my rent. It was wholly upsetting to hear things like "don't you realize it's Thanksgiving?!?!" when I, too, had a family that I would have rather been spending MY Thanksgiving with as well. I also worked as a sales representative. Once again, the company was not the most honest or ethical, but having already worked there for quite sometime and built friendships with those who ran the show, it was harder for me to see those issues. When I did the demonstrations, they were booked with people like you on the phone. I drove out sometimes an hour or two at a time to get to a presentation, took out my suitcase full of equipment as well as the free gift, put a smile on my face, and rang the doorbells of the people who'd agreed to my stopping by. Again, though, it's a tough concept for people to grasp that the nuisance at the door is actually a human being. People like you who agreed to presentations with the idea in their heads that they'd grab the prize and slam the door in our faces made it really tough for me, a 17 year old girl who worked 80 hours a week through every season on commission, to make a living. Please try and remember, guys, that no matter how much you hate a company's marketing strategy, the people who work FOR the companies are usually not bad people. If you have a problem with the way they market things (which you very well might), kindly ask to speak with someone in charge, or report the business on your own time, but please don't take it out on the employees. Please don't curse on the phone or make plans to slam the door in their faces. They are just people who are trying to get by.
