Scottish Power problems after 6 years


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

Would like some advice please.

 

I left Scottish Power over 6 years ago when moved into my new home and haven't been with them since.

I gave them meter readings and they lost them and sent me a ridiculous bill which i said i refuse to pay,

 

Ive asked for a breakdown continuously on and off for 6 years which they can only provide a estimate

I decided to go to the Ombudsman which was a mistake because they don't even seem to look at the evidence I have provided and looks like they have sided with them at present.

 

I left the property in Sept 2014 ( private Rented so other tenants were in there after) and they said they have taken a reading in Nov 2014 when I wasn't even living  in the property?  The Ombudsman has seemed to except this? 

 

Has anyone got any advice on how to proceed as I dont think this is fair.

How are you communicating with them, via phone or letter?

 

I'd be lodging a complaint against the ombudsman also.

 

However, what are the figures they are demanding?

 

Did you take a photograph of the meter when you took the final reading?

How long after you took the final reading did they send you the bill?

 

Stay OFF the phone, keep everything in writing/email, have they marked your credit file?

And is it still Scottish Power chasing or have they palmed it off onto a tame DCA?

Hi, 

Thank you for replying I have communicated by phone and writing to the Ombudsman and they even produced a so called bill for 2015 and I wasn't even there?

 

The strange thing is it hasn't been on my credit file at all and certainly not on there now,

They actually closed my account and I took a picture of this on my phone and since I been to the Ombudsman they have opened it again with the amount they are asking?

 

They are still chasing me for it but did say they had passed it to a debt collecting DCA but they had sent it back?

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...

Let us know how you get on, they usually claim it isn't SB, but we all know it is.

 

If you like you can always make a formal complaint to SP about passing this SB debt to a powerless DCA to chase.

:crazy: yes i am aware scotland is part of the uk....

 

what i am asking is where was this property you were living in when you had SP as the supplier?

i'm just wondering as it this is scottish power, if the property was in scotland, they have totally different statute barred law than the rest of the UK

darn 

well as the 'debt' is still with the original 'creditor' they are quite entitled to ask for payment

though ofcourse you are just as entitled to tell them to...

 

SB in E&W simply removes enforcement of any court judgement , so they don't bother to do court.

 

have you checked the number on say whocallsme.com to ensure it is sp ringing not a dca?

 

but yes ignore.

Yes have checked the number and it says Scottish Power collections, they passed it to a collection agency a couple of years ago but told them it was in dispute and to give it back to SP which they did, what happens ifvthey sell it to a debt collection agency if its SB? Its hasn't been on my credit file for years?
