Hi fed up. SP cannot leave you in the dark like this. Keep trying. One person I helped used Citizens Advice successfully.

Re: Contacting Scottish Power
Hi Dave,
Thanks for your very useful remarks. I must admit I had completely overlooked the fact that I am able to change the tariff myself as this is something I would not be able to do in France where I live most of the time.
However, the account has been closed and a new one set up with no explanation (or instructions from me). The initial account set up to somebody else's meter is still however open, and it is into this account that my direct debits are still being paid. I had been told by SP back in October that the credit accrued on that account would be transferred to the new account, but this has not happened. I do not wish to make any changes to the tariff or payments before I have had a clear reply to my complaint, but still have not received a reference number to enable me to make this complaint. I think I should cancel the Direct Debit (and probably should have done that ages ago), but again, this is not something I would have been able to do in the French system.
What do you advise me to do?

Re: Contacting Scottish Power

You can cancel the wrong DD by requesting your bank to stop it. I think you should do this but make sure SP know what you are doing and that you want to set up a new DD linked to your real account.   If they think you are just stopping payments for no reason it could damage your credit status.  Glad you have made some progress with your two meters.

Re: Contacting Scottish Power
It has so far 1 hour 9 mins awaiting on the telephone for someone to answer!!!! I mean seriously this is disgusting customer service, yes call lines are busy but you obviously need more staff! I’m so annoyed not only have you grossly over billed me but I have to wait over an hour to speak to a human about it 😡😡

By far the worst company to get hold of. You should switch to Bulb, excellent online response, far superior to this lot.

Re: Contacting Scottish Power
Hi Debbie. Sorry you had to wait on the phone. I would never wait more than 10 minutes because if it is not working it is not likely to change quickly. Try in the morning as early as possible.
