Hello,

 

I had a letter from someone called 'Pastdue credit solution's'' this morning, asking me to phone 0141 951 6447 - they said I owed

 

£406.96 for an outstanding debt to 'British Gas' from a previous property I lived in .... I owe no such debt at all ........

 

I have prepayment meter's and have done ever since I was deserted by my spouse, and had to find a place of my own.

 

British gas have not communicated to me of any such debt, and I buy my fuel online at british Gas with paypoint top-up direct

 

from my pc, and each time I top-up I get an email as proof of payment.

 

Is the letter from Pastdue legitimate ? I really don't want to phone them and waste my time or money.

 

Thank's x

It could well be a phishing letter - I wonder if it would be worth you contacting British Gas and asking them why this company would be demanding money, in their name, when you do not owe BG any money !

 

I will ask for more advice from Site team for you, before you take any steps to contact anyone.

 

Right.. dx was posting same time as me :lol:
