  1. Any of the above. Perhaps I’m being paranoid but I don’t like the idea of them passing copies of my data to anyone they seem fit. If it stay with the data controller then i am fine with it
  2. They are not accepting a council tax bill. They either want passport, birth certificate , driving licence (don’t have) or photo card ID
  3. They finally replied properly and want some ID (passport or birth certificate) to send the SAR. Is this safe? Could they use my ID against me somehow? Eg pass onto DCA?
  4. Wouldn’t say a matter of laziness but rather a matter of waiting weeks for a response. none the less I’ll post a copy on Monday
  5. I’ve posted it here with the formatting in tact. Yes they use different text sizes and type faces all over the place. Cut and paste obviously with shockingly broken English. I’ve not moved at all. I used the template on here. Your reply from British Gas- 8010651970.pdf
  6. I have just received an email from British Gas pretty much rejecting the SAR request! Telling me the debt is with Moorcroft and I should chase them!
  7. Yes this is the case. I convinced BG to return the debt to themselves. Probably truth is it was always with them as Moorcroft claim the debt was never sold off. I Don’t buy this because I’ve been with my new supplier for a year and have gone out of my way to give regular readings, it’s been £108 a month which is much more reasonable than BG suggested towards the end
  8. I didn’t then but I do now. none the less the ombudsman seemed to verify and confirm in their report that those calls took place
  9. Phone call. I have the exact dates and the person’s name I spoke to though.
  10. September (22nd I think) 2017 was the date of the switch. New Provider is Flow. First Final Bill was sent then, and the 'revised' one February 2018
  11. Moved into current home in 2014. quoted £74 per month in electricity charges which was paid via DD. May 2016 charges jumped to £250 per month which i disputed. Provide numerous meter readings to BG and arrangement for engineer visit. June 2016, BG stated balance was £1,161 which translated to a payment of £223 per month I disputed and set up a Standing Order Mandate of £100 to cover charges until matter resolved. June 2016 Engineer confirmed that meter readings were ‘probably’ transposed and could not install a second test meter (in case of fault) because of lack of
  12. Hi. Thanks for replying. I have no idea why the other bill was higher , I still think its incorrect. BG claim it was a catchup bill because my new energy supplier gave them my latest meter readings on the switchover date . I argued with the ombudsman that BG never did fix the reversed readings issue (hence the continued high bill) however they claim they did. I do have the Ombudsman report. Should i attach it? It's quite comprehensive. The bills became very high from late 2016. No new meter put in place, but my new supplier charges me £108 a m
  13. Hello everyone. Following a divorce around 10 years go, I was left with some bad debt and several defaults. Since then i have worked to clear as many as possible and all my defaults today have dropped off. I actually have 'good credit' again. Unfortunately British Gas have put a spanner in the works. They supplied my electricity 2014 - 2017. My monthly payment amount was initially £78, rising to £100. Then out of the blue they demanded £275 a month!
