I've been with SSE since I moved into my house just over 6 years ago. After about a year, Scottish Power started sniffing around, despite telling them no they were persistent. I agreed to a quote only, which seemed to get rid of them.


After a few weeks, SSE wrote to me advising that they'd had an approach from another supplier. I called them advising them that I hadn't authorised it, but still the transfer went through. I was only aware of it fully happening when Scottish Power started sending through bills.


It took some time to sort it out and transfer it back, involving lots of calls to SP. I'm now back with SSE, however Scottish Power have been previously writing to me regarding their bills. I've said to them that I never authorised the switchover. I've told them that if they can get the bill transferred to SSE as if they'd never stolen my supply in the first place, then I'd be happy to pay.


I didn't refer this to OFGEM at the time as from what I'd been reading they appear to be useless and generally side with the supplier.


Recently I've checked my credit file and they've registered a default.


Firstly, I thought only companies covered by the CCA could register a default?


Secondly, I didn't get any paperwork regarding the default, I was under the impression that a default couldn't be registered without a process being followed?


Do I have grounds to get this default removed as I feel it's not been registered correctly. As I've said I've got no problem with paying it, but I feel SSE should have the money and not SP as SP stole my custom without my authorisation.

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...
