Class action against energy company bullies, such as EDF


Recommended Posts

I am being harrangued for a debt I don't owe whilst in hardship by EDF, who was given this household's supply by OFGEM when it closed down several small companies in 2019.

Unbelievably, this is happening during cold months and a full strict lockdown!

 

I consider that this is a crime on several counts:

1) fraud by nondisclosure, as per 2006 act: that free energy exists and that patents have been suppressed to help us use it, thus giving the illusion that energy can only be supplied by for profit companies (the same is true of water), when it is a naturally occurring, God-given free resource which has been harnessed and sold back to us, and it's hard to avoid or find alternatives

2) the energy industry is a form of modern slavery as per 2015 act, holding us in lifelong custom: something we need, can't easily find an alternative from or not use. This supplier took over without consent or knowledge or warning and will not relinquish me without paying them; but the amount grows as they continue our abusive relationship

3) as utility acts such as the 1989 and 1990 clash with inalienable natural Common Law and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 and various other laws, some to be listed anon, that the so-called powers given to energy companies to gain money and bully are not lawful

4) removal of energy takes our rights (as in the UDHR) to eat, wash, be warm, work, communicate, and have leisure and enjoyment. Particularly, it can cut those off who rely on the internet and battery operated phones, thus making them vulnerable, and causing a snowball effect

5) cutting off, or the fear and bullying around doing so and 'recovering debts', causes mental and physical suffering, as well as great inconvenience and loss.

a) These are recoupable in monetary terms of the claimant (ie customer's) choosing

b) this amounts to constructive demise or manslaughter  - including attempt and conspiracy to commit this serious crime (attempt and conspiracy apply for all the others below)

6) asking for money in a way which is upsetting, intimidating or distressing is another criminal offence under the Prevention From Harassment act of 1997 - and most debt demands fulfil this, and are not incidental, but designed to cause fear in the way they are worded, in the design of the 'red, urgent' envelopes, in the vagueness of who and where the collector is, offering a generic phone number; bluffing about their powers and a warrant; coming to the door with hand delivered envelopes to embarass in front of household members and neighbours; and the way they appear at your door to actually collect or tamper with supply

7) There is Aggravated Trespass under the criminal justice and public order act of 1994, where if you have given written notice that implied access to your property (I include remotely, in the case of smart meters), to enter the premises (including outside areas) without written permission and especially with ill-intent, is a further summary, ie imprisionable offence

😎 this is also exhortion and blackmail

9) it is an aggressive sales technique, no different from drugs barons and loan sharks

10) a prepayment meter is just another way of forcing debt repayment, and as the customer doesn't set the amount, if they do not have resources they are still left without power and heat

11) this is closely related to the data and surveillance and weaponised energy of 5G via smart meters, and so this is

a) espionage

b) mass experimentation under the Nuremburg code of 1948

c) biowarfare

12) it is also breaking and entering, if they force or pick locks

13) any physical abuse has other crimes - such as battery, grevious bodily harm, assault

14) lying or tricking to gain entry is also a crime

15) their involving your neighbours breaks confidentiality, such as asking about you, getting them to let them in. This is against their industry code

and 16) during lockdowns and other restrictions related to covid, they break the coronavirus act 2020. Utility workers are only classed as keyworkers when they are keeping a supply running and safe. They are not permitted to work or travel to harass and cut off - this is especially reprehensible during an extended pandemic when so many are anxious have weakened immunity, and financial difficulties. When most of us are not meant to see loved ones, especially indoors

17) if the operatives are masked - this includes a locksmith or any enforcement with them - this heightens the offence as, despite covid guidance, it is done with criminal intent and knowingly

a) makes them look sinister, thus adding to fear of the customer

b) hides their identity and obfuscates justice

18) any persons involved, including administrators and the judge who created any warrant

19) to exaggerate one's legal powers is also an offence

 

Furthermore, utility companies send out - and sell out - debts and debt collectors who have no knowledge of the communications between the company and the customer; such as whether they are misbilled, or even the right person. I also believe that poor service, such as being ignored or bullied, means a rebate on the 'bill'.

 

The ombudsman have consistently exacerbated and failed to put right, and OFGEM's policies have added to this too.

 

We need to take the power back into our hands; to choose our energy source and provider; to harness free, safe energy.

 

I am putting EDF staff on notice for all these.

 

Has anyone else had any similar trouble for this, especially in the last year? I would like to know the extent of the problem

 

I am considering class action. An expression of interest in no way commits you, especially financially.

Just an idea, why not have a wind turbine and some solar panels installed and produce your own energy, even get paid to put some back into the national; grid!

 

I'm happy to pay the water companies for providing clean drinking water direct to my house, otherwise I'd have to go down to the river, collect some water, then cart it back home and then treat it in order for it to be safe to drink.

 

Same goes for my gas and electric, electrickery is a dark art, I'm not even sure how I'd begin to make that least of all contain it?

 

And I'm far too lazy to dig into the earths crust to extract my own gas, so I'm happy to fund someone else to have that headache and provide me those resources.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

OK lets pick out a few words in the ramble

 

Free energy? 

Slavery? 

Constructive manslaughter? 

Weaponised energy of 5g

Biowarfare

Only wearing medical masks for criminal intent

 

Please may I suggest an extra layer of foil on the tin hat? 

 

Oh and FYI there is no class action in the UK...

I was just surprised there was only a single reference both to "consent" and to "inalienable natural common law", but no references to either admiralty law or the legal person...
