last year I helped my grandmother switch from EON to Scottish Power to save some money on her energy bills, in October of last year when they requested meter readings we noticed that the previous meter reading showing on their website was in the region of 6000 units lower than the reading we had just taken. We contacted Scottish Power using their online contact form and explained the situation, they requested a photograph of the meter showing the serial number and current reading, then confirmed that the serial number was correct and that the meter read was indeed anomalous. At this point they requested we take photographs of the meter reading every day for a week to check if there was an issue with the meter reading too fast, we provided these at the end of the week the usage seemed normal, Scottish Power determined that the previous supplier had given them an incorrect opening meter read. On 2nd November Scottish Power advised that they would go back to the previous supplier and request that they amend their final meter read to a correct one and that within 28 days the opening meter reading on the Scottish Power account would be corrected. Shortly after my grandmother received an amended final bill from eON for £90 which showed they had amended their final meter read to the one specified by Scottish Power. After this was paid we just assumed that the issue would be resolved. Come late December Scottish Power sent an automated mail requesting meter readings so we took these, upon logging in to the website again we found that the online account still showed a meter read 6000 units too low. I replied to Scottish Power's e-mails on the matter on 25th December and received a response on 2nd January apologising and stating that they would once again get in touch with eON to have them amend their final meter read and that the issue would be resolved within 28 days. I immediately replied to this e-mail on the same day, advising Scottish Power that the previous supplier had already amended their final meter reading and that the issue was with the Scottish Power opening read, and that any changes needed to be carried out by Scottish Power. I never received a response to this mail. I sent another mail reply on 13th January, beyond the automated "We will respond within 48 hours" there was no reply forthcoming, and the online Scottish Power account still shows a meter reading 6000 units short of what it should be. As far as I can tell what's happened is that either Scottish Power have made a mistake when opening the account, as it appears from the amended final bill that eON did provide a correct final read originally, or shortly after opening the account a Scottish Power meter reader came to the property and read the meter, because the meter is at floor level they mistook a 6 for a 0 and then amended the meter read downwards themselves. We just want Scottish Power to amend the meter read on their system so that we can submit accurate meter readings without running the risk of being charged for 6000 units of usage that has already been paid to previous suppliers. Long term this issue also prevents switching providers as the new provider will be given the incorrect meter reads and the problem will start all over again. All communication with Scottish Power so far has been in writing via e-mail and we'd prefer to keep it that way so that everything is recorded/documented. I was planning on following the Scottish Power official complaints process this weekend, before that I was wondering if anyone here had an e-mail address for the Scottish Power CEO that I could try and contact on my grandmothers behalf and see if they can get this issue sorted out faster.
hi all... my partner lived in France for years and recently moved back to the Uk. .. since returning French authorities are demanding 6000 Euros for some supposed over-payment of low income supplement that she received while in France. She emailed them explaining that as well as not understanding why this is owed, that she is on low earnings here and could only afford to repay 20 Euros per month. They have said this is not acceptable and want more than 200 Euros per month. The other day we have received a letter demanding the full amount from "Titre Executoire" ... Are we likely to have bailifs on the doorstep next? What should we do?? Thanks in advance. we haven't received anything from any debt collection agency yet as far as i can see this letter looks from official local government from where she lived...
Hi We closed our account with Npower in april this year. Before closing we were informed that we were £300 in credit. 2 weeks ago we received a final bill of £1577.24 When I spoke to the operator he informed us that we hadn't been billed for gas since sept 2013. I questioned this and suggested that even if this was the case we had been paying £100 per month and that this should have covered close to what we were using. When I was also surprised as our meter was read by a reader on christmas eve. I then enquired about the excessive electricity costs. The operator said that the meter was read at 12150 when in fact the final reading was 5958. We have now received another final bill for £873.81. I am also think this bill is a bit dubious as on the same page it states that our estimated duel fuel consumption this year would be £1150. We are at a bit of a loss as to where to start with all this. I have no way of checking their facts and charges and I'm also extremely unhappy that they (and for that matter I) haven't noticed that we haven't used any gas for 2 years. I just get the feeling I'm being shafted and would be really grateful for any help from someone with a bit of experience in this area.
Britain's biggest bank, Lloyds, received nearly 6,000 complaints a day from July to December last year. And more than eight in ten were about payment protection insurance. Overall, across all its Halifax, Bank of Scotland and Lloyds TSB brands, complaints fell by 11 per cent on the previous six months. Banks are now forced by the City watchdog to publish their complaints data every six months. Lloyds is the first to go public with its data. The Financial Services Authority will reveal a complete set of figures on March 27. Lloyds has been bombarded by complaints over mis-sold PPI the past few years. It has already put aside £5.3billion to pay compensation to victims. This is far more than any other bank — and the figure is expected to rise when it announces its latest results on March 1. Last week, the Financial Services Authority fined the taxpayer-backed bank £4.3million for delays in handing out redress to 140,000 customers. PPI complaints fell from 727,068 in the first half of 2012 to 658,289 in the final six months. A spokesman insisted it is a legacy of its past — and pointed at vastly improved day-to-day banking complaints figures, which fell from 132,958 to 103,735.
