If anyone could help me it'd be much appreciated.

 

About two years ago we changed from NPower to SE, they sent a final bill and we paid it end of. 12 months later we recieved a letter from NPower for final payment for the Gas 12 months later!!!!! I argued it and explained to them that they cant just after 12 month expect anyone to say oh ok heres the money.

As far as I can see they are in error, anyways I now have a final demand from Rossendales Collect saying they will take us to court which may result in

Judment being entered against me

An order being made to secue the debt against my property

My perosnal effects being sold to repay the debt

 

 

Any reply to this would be very much appreciated, I want to write to them but don't know what to say.

 

please please can anyone help

 

Thanks so much

are you saying you are not liable for the final bill because they sent it 12 motnhs later or because you already paid what you owed to NPower?

Make them prove the debt exists & they have the right to collect, send them this;

 

Dear Sir/Madam

 

Account no:

 

You have contacted me/us regarding the account with the above reference number, which you claim is owed by myself/ourselves.

 

I/we would point out that I/we have no knowledge of any such debt being owed to (insert company name).

 

I am/we are familiar with the Office of Fair Trading Debt Collection Guidance which states that it unfair to send demands for payment to an individual when it is uncertain that they are the debtor in question.

 

I/we would also point out that the OFT say under the Guidance that it is unfair to pursue third parties for payment when they are not liable. In not ceasing collection activity whilst investigating a reasonably queried or disputed debt you are using deceptive/and or unfair methods.

 

Furthermore ignoring and/or disregarding claims that debts have been settled or are disputed and continuing to make unjustified demands for payment amounts to physical/psychological harassment.

 

I/we would ask that no further contact be made concerning the above account unless you can provide evidence as to my/our liability for the debt in question.

 

I/we await your written confirmation that this matter is now closed. Otherwise I will have no option but to make a complaint to the trading standards department and consider informing the OFT of your actions.

 

I/we look forward to your reply.

 

**Edit to suit**

 

Remember, don’t sign the letter.

Thanks so much Cerb, do you think it will make em get lost?

IDA, I am saying we are not liable as I am sure I had read n the energy ombudsman legislation thingy that they cant collect monies due after 12 months. Im sure I readit actually I just cant remember when or where....

You mean the Billing Code, I would think contacting the original creditor would be more effective in respect of this angle of approach.

Should be fairly simple Red. If the bill is dated more than 12 months after you left supply, it should be covered by the Late billed code. The supplier must issue you with a final bill within 1 year of you leaving.

If it's 365 days, they're ok, anymore than that, raise a complaint & it should be written-off.
