FPL / attaching somebody else's bill to mine

1 FL, United States

I received a letter from FPL today advising me that they are attaching a relative's old bill (approx.$1400) to my account (which has never been late) because they believe that I lived with that relative when she held an account with them. Ok, first of all, I did not live with her. Second of all, even if I did, why am I responsible for her electric bill? I never signed anything admitting responsibility for anybody else's utility bills. I really want to know if this is legal. I know they have an army of corporate attorneys telling them that this is fine, but is it really? Even if it is legal, has anyone at FPL ever heard of business ethics? Why would I pay somebody else's electric bill? I'm not santa! They told me that they found my name attached to my relative's address through a public agency. SO WHAT?! In what way does that make me liable for somebody else's bill??????????????? Looks like I'm going to have to hire an attorney. I'd rather pay an attorney that money than FPL!
