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. Previous promotion recipients not eligible. Trademarks, logos & pictures are property of Tide & Proctor & Gamble Company and are used herein strictly for brand/product Recognition.

>>>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.

Hi guys - just got a call that I won : ) I picked up their number: 1-+1 877-214-1442 and said that I will check their web before talking to them. Here I am : ) I would highly recommend everybody to report any frauds to http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/scams-fraudes/tf-ft-eng.htm. Let's fight together. Sounds like everybody won the prize????...They called my house twice this morning 10:23 am and 11:03 am. I missed the first one because I was in the bathroom and then phone rang again 11:03 am. Usually I don't pick up any telemarketing calls such as 1-877.xxxx something like that...But this was different. There was caller ID as Breathe Easy Home and area code 613 so I answered the phone without doubt...The girl had a heavy accent and asked for my boyfriend so I told her if I needed to take a message because my BF wasn't home at that point. The girl said it was about survey and free estimation and she would call him back. In the evening my BF came home and he called the number and figured out it was scam....so he requested to remove our phone number from the list but they said it would take 1 month...that means they would bug us another month??? Are you serious??? I am just sick and tired of these kind of scammers. They always disturb me when I am sleeping after night shift previous day!!! If you want to run business, do something normal and follow business ethics!!! Easy come Easy go...that's how money plays with human race!!! Is there any law to control those annoying companies?? You're missing the point: the quality of their products has nothing to do with it - they're breaking the CRTC's rules and have already been found guilty and fined for this. Not only is this NOT the only tactic they have, it's one they're prohibited by legislation from using. There needs to be more severe penalties - the last one they got obviously didn't work. To continue this even after being fined is appallingly crooked. Why would anyone deal with a company that doesn't care about breaking the law? I probably won't get a followup about the prize because I rent, but if you do get that call, they need to be reported to the CRTC. Call from Breathe Ease saying it was a follow up call to a survey I supposedly participated in 2 days earlier,.....I just arrived home today after a week away so thats b.s. on their part.They asked for me by first name only.Oh,...and our # is on the [***] National Do Not Call registry!!! *paid Sorry about that! Also they do not have base salaries. It is all commission and it is a very low rate compared to the rest of the industry. This company is known throughout ottawa and has a bad reputation. You will find it very difficult to make any money selling their products. I had several calls from an unavailable number to which I eventually responded to (picked up one day I was expected an overseas call from a relative). This was a survey asking various questions about age of house, allergies etc. and asked if they could call back in case I won a prize. Then I started receiving calls from (613) 225-4770 which I have not answered but which call display identifies as Breathe-E-Z Homes. I am on the national "Do Not Call" list.A search on this name reveals a CRTC ruling in 2010 against this company for pursuing the tactic of a survey/prize as a prelude to a telemarketing call even to "Do Not Call" listed numbers - exactly what appears to be happening now:http://www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/archive/2010/2010-572.htmThe survey was conducted by a Philippines-based company SPT Business Processing Outsourcing services. The CRTC ruling addressed the fact that even if someone on the DNC list agreed to being called by this company for a survey and to accept a prize, the resultant telemarketing call from Breathe E-Z Homes violated the "Do Not Call"-related section of the Telecommunications Act.A name search also reveals activity in the Calgary area on number (403) 770-0522 for which the "Who Calls Me" listing is very telling: the "prize" comes personally delivered to your house with a salesperson promoting $3000 vacuum cleaners - there are 8 pages of comments there.The CRTC only successfully proved two violations in 2010 and fined the company $1000 for each one - so given the cost of the products they are selling, the fine is probably just an acceptable business expense.
