I don't believe what's happened.

 

Firstly, times have been hard for a while and the bills have been mounting up.

I've been trying to clear it but each month the new bills bring the bills back up again, so I have been struggling for a while.

 

I got back from work tonight to discover that a locksmith and two Scottish Gas guys broke into my house to change the gas meter to a pay as you go one.

 

My 14 year old son was in at the time, he had no classes this afternoon.

No ID was shown,

they asked if he owned the house,

then asked how old he was,

when he told them he was 14 they told him to leave the house or they would call the police.

 

I assume they are not allowed to be in a property with a child.

He opted to run away, leaving the house with 3 strangers in it!

 

They broke in before to change the electricity meter above head height.

 

Are they really allowed to do what they like?:mad2:

Thanks,

I will have got bill reminder letters but nothing legal, just saying I owe money.

I know, it's been very tough for me the past few years, but like you say, my own doing.

 

I really need to learn how to juggle very little.

All I want to know is if what they've done is legit.

Does it not matter if the owner of the property is not in?

If they had made an appointment with me I would have gladly let them change the meter.

 

I'm actually relieved there's a meter, hopefully the household will stop playing fast and loose with the heating.

 

I don't know what charis trust is?

this is why im puzzled?

if you've totally ignored them and not engaged then no they wont help you sadly.

 

SGAS are very good, ive been with them over 10yrs now and believe me i was and still am far worse off than you but I engaged wit them and informed them every step of the way about my circumstances...

 

you must really budget better

drop things like mobile phones, credit cards, buy to rent stuff like brighthouse etc right down to £1PCM or less

Thanks,

I only have a payg mobile,

I have no credit cards and I certainly do not use brighthouse et al.

 

I work quite a distance from home and have to travel up to 50 miles a day and don't get mileage allowance, but it's still better than having no job.

 

Time to sit down and do my sums again.
