hi im mike .. me and my partner are both disabled

my partner is deaf and I use a wheelchair


we have had several years of troubles with british gas from eronious transfers ,

them trying to force us to pay gas and elec bills for houses we don't even live in ,

to over charging us for massive amounts of electricity used when we asked them for help to find why our usage was so high ,

which they agreed to come to our house and find the problem then refused to do this after agreeing,


we raised a complaint through the ombudsman about their behaviour

who found british gas were doing things wrongly

and told the company to apologise and gime £20 for my troubles .


this latest episode is driving us both insane with stress and grief ,

while we were going through a very major personal problem .

where my partner was abused as a child

we were driving back and forward to the high court as my partner pressed charges for abuse ,


early in the year I informed british gas not to take more than £60 per month from my bank ,

and also made calls to them which they agreed


during the trial for my partner ,

british gas went into our bank took over £90 knowingly without our permission on 3 occasions .



now we don't have loads of money and the extra they took from our bank put a high court trial at risk ,

because we needed the money they took from our bank for fuel to go to the court trial .



.. the man charged was sentenced to 9 years in jail .

but british gas did not return the money to our bank

except 1 payment when there were 3 occasions they took it from us ..


we had the ombudsman deal with a previous complaint with the same company

and they tried to hide the actions by saying it was part of a previous complaint ,

and they would not deal with it ,


now we cannot trust them to go near our bank

have been forced to stop their acess to our bank



. now they are trying to threaten us bully us and ignore the fact they took the extra money from our bank



.. were looking for help or advice on how to deal with this company please ...


many thanks in advance / mike and Sandra

if you had a DD mandate set up with them

and they did not write to you

telling you specifically each time they were going to do this



you can invoke the DD guarantee with your bank.



how long ago was this please

and have you the evidence




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...
