Re: Very high bill, wrong total, Direct Debit Managers
Leah,

I've not been billed since April!!
I was with Extra Energy and was in credit.
When i started having trouble with sending my meter readings i went online and noticed im £1200+ in debit lol.
DD's have stopped in April to as well so i went on chat and got bloody no where.....
Several debits have been added in the one month sometimes , bumping up the debt.
Never had any trouble with ANY other utility company since i started owning a property in 1996 and so i'm sending all relevant documentation to ," MSE" as soon as i can.
I'm really let down with supposedly a Scottish company, but cant help think there to busy looking after their shareholders, Sad...

Re: Very high bill, wrong total

I've  just  had the horendous 12 months with Scottish Power over my gas usage. Please every one take note as this is a total learning curve for me and my family.  We were with SSE but got a better deal  with SP as our contract was ending with SSE so we thought. After the first few months we get a bill of over £400 just for the gas which was almost the usage for the whole of the previous year. I checked the meter and the readings all were correct. Got the British Gas emergency 0800111999 knocking on my neighbours doors to warn them thinking I had a gas leak and to take the kids somewhere safe.

Got all the pipes checked no problems next month gas bill £140  now I now my property and how much we as a family use , so I call SP and start to as questions. I tell them I'm not paying what they are asking , they advise me there is only a limit the can reduce too. I then say I'm not paying that it's too high I don't have the income .I know what I use and spend there is something wrong !!!. 

We agree to reduce to £110 per month ,come two months later my wife says they have take £165  out just for the gas by now this was causing us problems with cash as we are living off savings . So again we contact them and again same resolution but this time we can't afford to put the heating on most of the day ,only when it's too cold it goes on ,we have now brought the bed covers from upstairs to cover ourselves while downstairs.

We went out and bought a calor gas fire so we could heat one room so we could stay warm a little on the budget that we had. We were ecstatic when the winter was over .

So getting to my main point which has got me fuming and would like some advice ,who should take the blame and what should or could be done . I've managed to get my account back into credit with the vast amount of payments Scottish Power have been taken for my gas account and I asked for a full read out from when I started with them . When I get this read out I find that they have been charging me imperial rate gas instead of metric rate .So as you can guess call number 7 to customer support .

How many people are getting billed incorrectly. IF YOU HAVE A SMART METER  your reading are metric it will have the M3 logo on meter of 5 number IMPERIAL is only 4 dials or numbers

Over billed, wrong totals, wrong meter readings

Absolute nightmare...

I moved out 6 months ago they were still charging me. Finally received so called final gas and electricity bill, paid and... they are still charging me.

Complain manager "investigated" the case and the answer was that I own them now even more than they initially wanted. Asked for the report and received some incredible figures apparently based on correct credit but still incorrect debit.

I just all history again (not to mention that I summarized everything in 15 minutes when it took them 6 weeks to get back to me with icorrect numbers). In 2 weeks I'm reporting it to ombudsman. Absolutely rubish company.

Re: Very high bill, wrong total
Just had a similar issue been paying about £130 a month for gas and electric. Moved house at the beginning of December called up to supply my new house all seemed fine checked to make sure no balance was outstanding and got tile I’ll have £37 refunded. Email comes through a few days ago saying I owe £900+ on gas alone. My electric has been on average £65 a month and apparently I’ve been using £250 a month on gas. The rest of the direct debit left From the electric has also just vanished. Called them up got told it would be investigated and the direct debit would not be taking out on the 28th jan 2020 till the issue was solved. I decided to cancel the direct debit just in case to avoid any overdraft fees. Another email today my direct debit failed to pay Scottish power brilliant

Re: Very high bill, wrong total

scottish power wants customers to run up bills and tell you your bank canceled your direct debit they didnt if you have a large bill you cant pay then you cant change your supplier untill the bill is cleared avoid this company at all costs im going to the ombudsmen with all my bills because i beleive they have over charged me since day one

Re: Very high bill, wrong total

@sjl1010   Fuel is expensive, most households pay £1000 to £1500 a year, all fuel companies ask for payment before they let you transfer. The ombudsman  needs evidence of an unresolved dispute, simply saying high cost will not work. The DD could have failed, not cancelled. You can discuss payment  with SP if you cannot afford the bills. The phone number is 0800 027 0072.  Good Luck

Re: Very high bill, wrong total
I have paid by direct debit and submit meter readings. My usage if anything is down and my outstanding balance is growing with every direct debit taken. I cancelled the direct debit with intention of moving and they contacted me by email to advise my bill value and my tariff was increasing due to coming of direct debit. I then telephoned them to discuss this and they advised me that my account was £421.00 in credit and would issue me with refund. Since this telephone call my account balance has changed again to owing £436.94. I have paid this full balance of £436.94 today and signed up to EON. My 25 years custom is going elsewhere
