  1. Greetings ladies and Gents, in the last week I have made a very substantial donation to Consumer Action Group Forums, firstly I did not donate because CAG had helped me recover money recently. Also since Carona Virus 19 hit millions of people have either had a cut in their pay or lost their job completely and are less likely to donate money even if it's just a penny or a pound! I myself lost all working age benefits in 2019, I have HB and DHP and I have managed to survive on just £480 and still save around £170 a month, even with an alcohol problem, as of tomo
  2. Greetings I been a user since 2006 and still not introduced myself, basically it is not required, you can start with a question or reply to someone else's question, however all user advice offered should be taken with a pinch of salt as sometimes the reply does not help resolve the issue, other times it's spot on!
  3. Greetings the only thing I can advise it to either disconnect your Gas and Electric by teminating your contract or get them out to cap-off your meters, but there is a fee for an engineer come out and cap-off your meters, the same again when you move back. Also the only thing I see in there T's and C's is if you owe them money for unpaid bills is they can charge you 2.5% above Bank of England's base rate each day as it accrues. If you terminate there may be early exit fees in addition to energy used and standing charges on all fuels, and of course 5% Vat
  4. Greetings Jase, the easiest way to get rid of DCA'S is tell them the account is in dispute. You should always take readings of your meters at least once a month, I tend to a reading on the 2nd of every calendar month, then I work out exactly how much that energy cost. You could take a meter reading today and another around the same time tomorrow, then subtract yesterdays reading from today gives you your usage then multiply that by 31 this gives an estimate of a 31 day month, and do the same for all fuels. You could switch energy provider, how
  5. Greetings Jase, do you know if the plan was fixed or variable? If it is fixed they cannot change it mid-term! Debt Collection Agencies usually send's you a threat-o-grams, full of words like "If you don't pay us we may visit your property, we could get you Arrested, you might loose your possetions", DCA's have less powers than your next door neighbor.
  6. Greetings Jase, at those prices you must have been sheepish, because Flow Energy were fleecing you! Iresa Energy; V4; 02 May 17 - 02 May 18; Direct Debit in advance £80; usage £77.75 Gas = £0.02642 per kwh, Standing charge £0.1696 per day 12500 kwh per year = £411.76 (£34.31 per month). Electric = £0.108 per kwh, Standing charge £0.1766 per day 4000 kwh per year = £521.28 (£43.44 per month). Iresa Energy; V5; 02 May 18 - 02 Aug 18; Direct Debit £80 in advance ; usage £81.07 ( Ofgem Rules no DD changes) Gas = £0.028 per kwh, Standing charge £0.1696 per day, 89
  7. Greetings RMW I too recently had ESA WCA and went from Support group with SDP to 0 points in all categories and Fit To Work. I have been Mentally handicapped since birth, had physical disabilties since 1995 and I am now an alcoholic too. Apparently the Decision Maker stated that they tried to phone me on Saturday 02 Mar 19, but failed to get an answer. Wednesday 06 Mar 19 I received benefit failure letter with ESA65 report, I checked 1471 and the last person that phoned was number withheld Thursday 28 Feb 19 at 08:45AM, also there was a line that "M
  8. Greetings I too am an ex-Iresa customer, fortuately for me the transfer to Octopus Energy went without issue, however my Direct Debit is to Iresa is still active and was paid on 10th of the month, the extra Direct Debit to Octopus Energy on 20 August never happened, and finally after the switch was completed to Octopus Energy they said that my Iresa acount was shut-down, when in fact my Iresa on-line account is still active, even today. Why don't you log-in to your Iresa Energy online account and grab the data!
  9. Ofgem Investigation into Iresa Limited has now concluded on the 27th of Jully 2018 with Ofgem shutting down Iresa Limited. Iresa Limited will be ceasing to trade. Ofgem, the energy regulator, is appointing a new supplier for its customers. Customers need not worry, their supplies are secure and credit balances are protected. Ofgem's advice is not to switch, but to sit tight and wait until the new supplier has been appointed. This will help make sure that the process of handing customers over to a new supplier, and honouring credit balances, is as hassle free for customers as
  10. Greetings how did the account get to defaulted in just three days after the account was created?
  11. Firstly your winfall does not take effect on your current Income Related benefits until you have had it for six months.
  12. Carl2017 It should be relatively simple to do a debit card Chargeback, however some banks are totally clueless of what a debit card Chargeback is! http://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/advice/how-do-i-use-chargeback According to their fillings they have only been trading under Gas Superstore limited for 20 years (10 Mar 1997), but could have been a sole trader prior to that date. https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/03330542
  13. Carl2017 firstly sorry, but it sounds as if it is personal, what have you lost?
  14. Greetings Ladies and Gents how often should Landis and Gyr 5235A / Ampy Automation 5235A Electric meter be replaced? The meter is the cheapest no frills anti-reverse digital electric meter they cost around £20 when they were introduced. I read somewhere ??? that it should be replaced every 10 years, however when I spoke to my current energy provider they said 2031 (25 years), that Centrica note above the meter was the provider when the meter was installed.
