Hi,

 

I was a customer of GB energy for a couple of years, and was still a customer when they went bankrupt,

I switched suppliers as soon as heard of their demise.

 

 

A couple of months before this happened I switched bank accounts, and tried to change my direct debit with GB but couldn't get through to speak to anyone about this, and they had no method of paying bills or changing details on their website, so I was stuck for about 3 months unable to pay anything to them. This still wasn't resolved when I switched, and they tried to block it but it eventually went through.

 

They are now claiming I owe them (co-op) £500.

This was because I was unable to make any payments, as I was actually in credit when I changed banks. and they are demanding payment.

I also think they continued to charge me after the switch.

 

I just want some advice as to where I stand with co-op and this debt,

as I was under the impression that I might not have to pay back any/all of ant outstanding balance after GB went under. And as I am now paying my current supplier,

 

 

can co-op demand I pay the full amount back,

and how can i check that this amount they are claiming is correct.

 

Thank you

well you might well owe them something if they purchased the GB portfolio which I think they did?

 

 

but no you are right

don't go blindly paying them.

 

 

ask them to send a copy of the bills and meter reading to prove their claim

Just a quick update,

they have ignored my letters and are now threatening legal action,

 

 

I have started making payments of £20 month,

I know I owe something, it's the amount I'm querying.

 

 

I'm more worried about them being arsey and sticking a default on my credit file, cos they are impossible to get rid of.

 

 

Any ideas, is it worth going to the ombudsman, my thought is probably not.

All the letters I have received, just the usual threat-o-grams.

 

 

I received letter4 yesterday with the threat of the doorstep monkeys.

 

 

I don't see their problem,

I've made a token payment,

as my intention of paying what I owe,

they haven't even acknowledged it,

and from experience I know that they can just stick a default on my credit file and there's nothing I can do about it.

ask them to send you a copy of the bill they are relying upon to claim the balance

state you dispute it.

I have, 3 times, and all they send is threatening letters, as above. There's a formal complaint letter on the way, whether that does any good remains to be seen. Any point in the energy ombudsman?

Hi,

 

Just received a LBA from Shulmans on behalf of UK Search, which relate to an old GB energy account, I switched suppliers when they went under a few years ago.  I have previously had demands from another company who couldn't prove that the amount they are claiming is the correct amount as I said it seemed a bit high.  They didn't reply, and I heard nothing for about 6 months until UK search contacted me for payment.  I've a feeling that I will be going round in circles again, but now these have threatened court action, is this just a frightening technique to make me pay.

 

I have sent them a SAR, and all they sent was the correspondence that they have sent me since the first letter asking for payment, no evidence of the amount owed.

When did you get the LBA

And did you get a response form with it wanting in/out etc?
