Hey there,

 

I have contact from BW Legal for debt of around £2700.

This was from when I was staying in a property with 2 other people as a student.

We irresponsibility didn't pay bills fully (I now fully understand how stupid it was btw).

 

Issue is it was all in my name apparently. They are offering 35% discount.

 

Do I have anything to stand on here or any advice someone has? I'm in Scotland also.

 

Thanks

How long ago was the energy bill unpaid ?

 

Did you register for the supply contract with EON ?

 

Were the meters read by EON on a regular basis ?  Did EON issue statements on a regular basis stating usage and amount due ?

 

Are BW Legal acting for EON ?  Does it state they are acting for EON in the letter received ?

 

If they are offering 35% discount, appears to suggest they believe they will have difficulty in recovering this debt.

We could do with some help from you.

this will be another one of lowells? fake electric bills that they think gives them some sort of superpower to demand money from you.

it doesn't

 

is this a letter of claim?

i doubt it if they are offering a discount!!

 

why do you think EON sold the debt on for 10p = £1 and not crushed you in court and get a CCJ and send HCEO bailiffs after you if you REALLY did owe this.... 

 

go check your credit file too!!

It was 2017/2018 and a bit of 2019.

 

The only meter reading I did was maybe one via online. I'm not sure about bills apart from just emails on an email address i didn't actually use anymore.

 

The wording in the email is this

Quote

In our previous letter, we advised that our client has authorised us to offer you a discount against the current amount owing. Strictly without prejudice, the discount available is 35% from your current balance. If you do take advantage of the offer, the revised amount to pay will be £1,758.48 if paid by 22/04/2021

We want to help you and prevent your case from escalating to the Pre-Action Protocol stage and we look forward to hearing from you by 22/04/2021.

Yeah I've been in a few different addresses since then. I didn't inform them of anything, though BW do have my current address in the email. I probobly set up the eon account with that email address though.

 

And yeah I was still in Scotland while I had the account.

good.

 FWIW the pre action protocol and thus it's letter of claim, doesn't apply in scotland so hence why they simply 'threaten it' and are just phishing to see if you reply.

which in this instance you SHOULD. (protect against backdoor legal action sent to an old address)

 

simply write (royal mail only 2nd class get free proof of posting from any PO counter) to LOWELLS (i will guess this is whom BW state as their client?) and simply state with ref to your account number xxxxx please be advised of my current and correct address as above.

Just send a letter as dx advises to PRAC providing name and address.

PRAC Financial Limited
F10 Longfields Court
Wharncliffe Business Park
Middlewoods Way
Barnsley
S71 3GN

 

Are you still in contact with the other two people you were living with ?  If so, I think you should inform them of this matter.  If you end up negotiating  a repayment amount, then the other two people should contribute one third each to you.

 

In regard to 35% discount, you may not know whether the £2700 they are chasing is accurate.  It may be a wrong amount, unless you know the amount from EON statements which you have checked as accurate. If you do not know the accurate amount, then send an SAR request to EON asking for all information including statements of account.

We could do with some help from you.

  • dx100uk changed the title to PRAC/BW Legal chasing old Scottish EON debt

inform the other people to read here they NEED to do the same regardless of them not being named on the bills, any adult of age is responsible and we HAVE seen backdoor CCJ's to old addresses but not from PRAC, me thinks they are flying a kite here 

they've seen £2700!! and their eyes have lit up.!! they WILL push this to court if they can get a backdoor CCJ.

 

as for paying...NO!!

 

have you any written proof like an old CTAX or rent bill with your name on it? 

it might pay you to SAR EON .
