Hi

 

In 2001 we recieved a bill for electric for over £800, at which time we disputed it. Since then we have never paid towards the bill, when bill is recieved we pay off only the last quarter and left the remaining.

 

The readings were estimated for 2 and 1/2 years from 1999 onwards.

 

We did have a visit some time ago from someone claiming to be from British gas but when we mentioned and proved that the bill was from 2001 he rapidly left.

 

Since then we had a phone call from british gas, and when I mentioned that the bill was statute barred -she stated that it wasn't as it is not a debt and is only a bill????

 

Can any one help with this and another letter was recieved this morning (Disconnection Notice) with normal text stating what will happen when bill remains unpaid.

 

We still have all the bills and correspondance from 1999 to date.

 

Any letters I can send to them would be really helpful.

if they have not billed you for that ammount in the last 12mts, then they cannot now do so.

[1yrs for old bill]

 

its in their own utility company guidelines.

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...
