SP must have the opinion that a broad shotgun approach is better than a targetted rifle in getting the maximum number of readings sent in. As for cost, it does not cost anything to send an email, so it is not really wasteful.
I think the point has been lost here. It's not the fact that SP have asked another company such as Morrisons to collect the information, it's to do with the fact that Morrisons have sent a letter requesting the readings , I think they are actually meant to come and read our meters otherwise SP would just send out an email just like they always do.
I have also had the letter from Morrison Data Services and hsve emailed SP for confirmation that it is not a scam
I've just had a letter from Morrison Data Services saying that Scottish Power have asked them to'obtain an up-to-date reading'. The letter then asks me to read the gas meter and send the reading to Morrison Data Services by phone or by logging on to their meter reading website. As I provide regular readings (the last one two weeks ago), I was wondering how much Morrison gets paid to send me a letter to send them a reading to send to Scottish Power.
I will not be replying to Morrison Data Srrvices nor will i ldt them have my gas meter reading and why have they not asked for electricity meter reading. This is probably a scsm and we need legal advice
Like everyone else, I've just received a letter from Morrison Data Services stating they are the appointed meter reading company for Scottish Power and requesting a meter reading (Electricity).
Two options to give the meter reading, telephone number and on-line. Problem, the on-line address provided doesn't work and there doesn't appear any obvious link on the Morrisson site.
Meter reading left direct with Scottish Power.
I though the leave a card when you were out and the meter reading company submitting as a reading was dodgy, sending a letter appears as though Scottish Power (and the customers) are being ripped off.
