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.

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. This is breathe ez homes Ottawa. They call doing a survey about air quality, and call the next day saying you won a prize and you have to sit through a presentation with a high pressure sales rep. So, why exactly are you posting on here? The post before yours was on 1st March, so you didn't come across it by accident, you had to input the telephone number. You appear to be happy with the company and you know the "company" so why come on to a site which is used to report unknown , unwanted and scam calls.? The usual reason for positive posts is that they are put on by com pa ny employees or owners to try and make the company look good. But, guess what? It doesn't work. They called me as well after I did the survey. Said I'd won a prize... blah, blah, blah. Some trip. I cancelled the arranged meeting. i too agree that B R H is going about this the totally wrong way if u want to help ppl than do just that. dont trick them into thinking they won free gifts. do real surveys and find real customers not ppl pressured into buying. whole big scam of getting in your home to give u a presentation could be more reputable and hold more value if it were with all best intensions no lies no scams Best thing to do by far is to go through the motions. When they ask for home address give them non existent location explaining it is a new development that I building in. I sent one person out well past Carp, ending up at an entrance to a corn field. Can't wait to do it again lmao.
