First topic message reminder :

I have just received a letter from British Gas saying that at the 19/12/2014 my account shows I owe them £234.51.

They say they have written to me and as I haven't paid it  the account is passed to something called PRA Group. Debt collectors I guess.

I haven't been a British gas customer since 2007 when I left the property the bill is for.

I paid a final account at the time but all these years later I cant prove it

Can they do this?

Bastards!

 Where i live there are meters downstairs for the flats , i was with EON for my Electric , i received a letter one day from them saying they were sorry to loose me as a customer , at the time i worked away alot and when i had time i phoned them up asking what were they on about, they said i had changed suppliers ,to which i replied that i had not , yet they insisted i had, so i asked them who i was with now, to which they replied '' we cannot tell you as that comes under data protection ''
 As you can see i was getting nowhere . the following weekend i phoned ALL the energy companies asking was i a customer of theirs and got '' We cannot tell you as that is against the data protection act '' so i waited for a bill from this mysterious energy company and none came that quarter or the next quarter or indeed the next quarter. at this point i realised i had forgotten British Gas do electric , so i phoned them as they are afterall my Gas supplier and guess what ?
They quoted the Data protection act , but the girl i spoke to was helpfull and said it was likely that someone had gained entry downstairs to read the meters and changed all the suppliers to get the £25 per meter commission.

 Having not had a bill for nearly a year i got back on to BG and changed my supply to them and asked could i have £25 for changing over , the result was next quarter i go a bill off them less my £25 commission and i had got free electric for a year.

ROFL ROFL
Well done I love it when someone gets one over them!
I didnt have to pay for my heating for 15 years after the housing association screwed up the system for reading the meter they installed online. the heating was done from a central boiler system for the whole estate and few people paid for it for years.
After I bought the place and moved out they installed new pre pay meters in every flat so now my tenants have to pay.
I may well sell my flat soon as it has made a 300% profit now and I am sure house prices are going to fall if labour gets in.

 Best sell up because if Labour get in there wont be a house left standing . ROFL
that is probably true. I just need to get it done before I come for my summer visit so I can go back with the cash and stick it in my 10% interest bank account.

It really annoys me when they do things like this. they know the letter will arrive Saturday when you cant do anything.

I have phoned PRA but surprise surprise they haven't had anything from BG yet. All done deliberately to make you stress on it all weekend

It needs sorting anyway, British Gas were chasing a friend of mine for some money he didn't owe, and they stuck a black mark on his credit rating. He had a hell of a game getting it back off again as well, took about 18 months.
