  1. The last few months I have been receiving numerous letters from a company called LCS demanding £24.65 + £5 admin charge on behalf of their client E-on for an alleged bill in June 2016 when I switched to a different supplier. I have contacted them by email many times for them to prove who they are & how the debt was incurred. LCS have now sent me E-on bill printouts & are now demanding £99.65 for an 'estimated bill'. As far as I'm concerned I do not owe any money. E-on have been very unhelpful. Any assistance please?

  3. In 2013 I had to give up work due to chronic ill health, I notified HMRC of my changed circumstances and my tax credits claim ended. Around six months later, I received a letter from HMRC stating I had been over paid by £3,500. I called them and after explaining my circumstances they agreed to suspend repayment, they didn't say for how long, just to expect further contact in future. I have since heard nothing from them. About a month ago, out of the blue I received a letter from a debt collector agency called LCS demanding repayment, I contacted HMRC and on

  7. I feel the sorting office at the tax credit office is in adequate for the job required, now over the last couple of months I have sent mail, which was requested by the tax credit office Oct 2013, they would reconsider my claim, but I had to send them prove, which I did, didn't hear anything back, so tried to contact them a further 3 time over 3 months, still no reply When I make threat to go back to the tribunal service, they reply, but they make out, Im at fault for not sending the items as requested, which I know is untrue, as they were sent recorded delivery At this

  12. moved into a flat last year which had a prepayment meter for electric and gas and the supplier was British Gas. I didn't know this at the time as the letting agents didn't tell me they were prepayment meters until I was switching suppliers. I assumed it was a credit meter like I'd always used. I still decided to switch from British Gas (aka BG) to Scottish Power (aka SP) which had been my supplier for my previous flats. I arranged for SP to take over the supply of Electric and Gas. After about a month they'd switched over and SP sent a new electric

  17. Hello, guys, I really need you help. I received a letter from LCS saying that I’m responsible for a bill payment at my previous address. The bill comes from EDF Energy and the period of the bill starts from 2007 to 2011 .However, I only stayed in that address for 2 months with other six people, and I never have an account with EDF Energy. Then I sent the copy of my tenancy agreement to LCS to prove my stay as they required. After that I received an e-mail saying they have sent my agreement over to EDF in order for the account to be amended to the dates I were residi
  18. Hi all. Had a debt letter from Wescot today claiming £931.00 On behalf of Anglian Water. The bill had both my name and ex wifes name on it. I have no idea why they are contacting me so I called them. Apparently the bill is for an address that my ex lives at and dates back to 2005. He also mentioned something about closure in 2008? My ex still lives at this address so why the hell are they contacting me! I was with my ex in 2005 and I can only asume that it is from a previous property but she dealt with all the bills. What can i do about this?
  19. Hi! I had a letter from LCS on Wednesday 8th May (it was dated 2nd May), demanding I pay a debt for the sum of £133.51p. I was unsure what to do and found this site. After reading the advice, I sent LCS a CCA request, including a £1 postal order. That was sent on Friday 10th May (proof of postage taken as per advice). Today (Monday 13th May) I had another letter from LCS (dated 9th May) telling me that they would take further action as I had ignored their earlier letter. Now, as I only had their letter less than a week ago (which stated that I had 7 days to reply), I am confused as
  20. Just after some advice. We have an outstanding bill to YW on a former address. We were initially contacted by Rockford who wanted £50 paying monthly but we told them we can only afford £5. They agreed to this but kept sending letters to us claiming that a repayment plan had not been set up. We have paid this for a few months now. Last month we were contacted by LCS and I replied telling them how we have been paying an agreed sum of £5 to Rockford and that we will continue with this and to provide their banking details for a standing order. In response to this I have received
  21. Hi, this is my first time posting so I hope I've put this in the right place. Today I've received a letter from LCS utility investigations addressed to the occupier/landlord. It states that they are 'investigating the utility supply of my home' and proceed to ask a list of questions - Your Name, date of occupancy, name of previous occupant, forwarding address of the previous occupant, Landlords name, address and phone number and anything else relevant. I've done some research on this outfit and what I've read points to the company working for British Gas, and not actually having any

  23. Hello, We have a house, which we moved out of on 16th July 2011. Our current tenants moved in on the 29th August and have been there ever since. A few days ago, I received a letter to my parents address from "LCS" where I used to live a long time ago saying that I owe £125 to British Gas for a period of 17th July to 28th August. I certainly don't remember having anything outstanding and I have received no letters saying from BG demanding payment. I wouldn't have missed any letters since I forward them to my new address.
