British Gas / billing problems

1 Salisbury, England, Wiltshire, United Kingdom

I was with British Gas 2 years ago, i moved to a different provider as they are not sending me any bills even though I tried to contact them many times.

- July 2007 they sent me a final electricity bill 0f £320 which we have settled and thought that it was the end of it, but to my nightmare they came hunting us again with their series of inconsistent electricity statement!!!

-August 19, 2008 they sent us a a final electricity statement with our final balance in credit as £0.00

-August 19, 2008 a second letter saying im sorry for the delay sending your bill etc etc., youll be pleased to learn that were not charging you for any energy used over a year ago. so As youll see from your bill your account balance is set £0.00 signed by Kevin Roxburgh, head of debt.

- and then lo and behold sept. 19, 2008 what did i recieve???
YOU STILL NEED TO PAY YOUR FINAL BILL (wt[censored])
WE NEED TO REMIND YOU THAT YOUR FINAL ELECTRICITY BILL FOR £506.33 REMAINS OVERDUE...
BE AWARE THAT CONTINUED NON PAYMENT MAY RESULT IN SEVERE CONSEQUENCES.

What is this are they taking the mickey of the paying public???

I TRIED TO RING THEIR COMPLAINTS NUMBER AND WAITED FOR HOW MANY MINUTES AT 0845 RATE WHICH MUST COST ME A FORTUNE, THEN WHEN I FINALLY SPOKE TO AN AGENT NAMED MARGARET SHE INSISTED THAT WE HAD TO PAY THE AMOUNT WITHOUT EVEN HEARING WHAT I WANT TO SAY, WHAT KIND OF COMPLAINTS HANDLING IS THAT??? TO MAKE IT WORST SHE CUT OFF THE LINE WHILE I WAS TALKING AND HAD TO TRY 3X AGAIN WAITING FOR AGES TO GET THROUGH THEN TO BE CUT OFF AGAIN.

I AM SO FURIOUS WITH BRITISH GAS, I WILL NEVER EVER EVER GO BACK TO THEM AGAIN. I WILL MAKE A FORMAL COMPLAINT ABOUT THIS. i DO HOPE PEOPLE WILL READ THIS AND LEAVE BRITISH GAS THEY ARE SO INCOMPETENT AND THEY ARE NOT WORTH ANY SINGLE PENNY FOR A RUBBISH SERVICE DELIVERY!!!
