We are on pay as you go both gas and electric and until the meters packed up electric on 31st Dec and then the gas on monday.

everything was ok.

 

the electric meter packing up left us with no electric at all and because EE were having their break they thought it would be a good idea not to have an emergency number..

I ended up speaking to SSE who came out 30 mins later to check the power into the house as they said just in case its a fault their side.

 

it wasn't,

it was a faulty meter,

SSE electrician got authority to bypass meter.

we then spent from 2nd jan to Tuesday 8th trying to get the meter sorted.

 

it was changed on the 8th after they reported us to SSE for unauthorised meter bypass,

which wasn't the case,

the meter was changed for a key meter.

 

the gas meter packed up on Monday this week,

and after lots of phone calls,

they sent someone to change the meter on tuesday.

that was changed for a card meter. no card left and no key left.

 

now EE have gone to the wall,

and ofgem who`s advise is to stay put until they change us over,

but where does that leave us without any means to top up our gas or electric..

 

.anyone have any suggestions have tried ofgem on their Facebook page but still waiting for a response...…

.thank you

in the back of my head I believe that you can get emergency keys and cards from any paypoint retailer.

Luckily as you've been here since 2009 you are fully aware that you never call these people without a call recorder and so you will have been recording all your phone calls. The recordings will be extremely useful to you later on when you start showing them that in fact you were authorised to carry out the bypass.

when the meter compliance chap came round, he confirmed it was sse that did the Bypass and that Economy would be getting the full bill for everything...

unfortunately tried that then just ended up in a long queue with CAB, so will try again today.

my post of 11th was incorrect not finally sorted, well until today anyway,

 

i had to go get card from shop,

they gave me one

put code in machine to activate the card and the code was not accepted.

 

went back home phoned them,

no joy office closed,

waited till next day by which point we ran out of gas,

 

by this point had an email to say ovo had taken over economy,

i phoned them,

they gave me a code to get a key for electric and said the key will have £25 credit to cover the credit i lost with economy,

gave me a code for the gas,

the card was collected from a specific shop,

got home card not working

 

phoned them yesterday ( out of gas at this point)

they sent engineer to put credit on meter,

gave us a code to collect gas card and also reimbursed us for the gas we lost with economy...
