hi

 

around a month ago i received a letter from LCS claiming i owed Scottish power £250 for a unpaid gas bill from my previous address.

 

they said the debt was from 20 dec 2013 to jan 2014,

 

but i terminated my tenancy on the 9th of december

 

oh and one other crucial point...

 

. i NEVER had gas installed at my previous address it got installed after i moved out( council property)

 

i contacted LCS who instructed me to contact my local council who i rented from and ask them to send proof of ending my tenancy,

 

i have now done this twice but

 

today i have received another letter threatening legal action within 10 days if i do not pay.

 

can anyone help me with this?

 

iam a genuine person and pay my bills but i will not pay this as i NEVER had gas at my previous address.

 

thanks to anyone who could point me in the right direction.

LCS are a debt collection agency

 

they have NO LEGAL POWERS AND ARE NOT BAILIFFS.

 

its not for you to prove the details of the debt BUT THEM.

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

 

if everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's tomorrow

the biggest financial industry in the UK, the whole DCA industry would collapse overnight.

thanks dx,

 

iam just back from my local council office and the lady i spoke with informed me that they have had 94 other complaints this week about the exact same thing.

 

the council have already contacted LCS and asked them to redirect any future letters regarding this to the council, but they are refusing to do so?

 

i have been told by the council to forward any other letters i receive from LCS to the council.

 

what a cockup this is
