They did the same to me as well, I am on the 62 plus plan because I am on social security disability and I often have to pay late as I get paid once per month a very small amount, my rent is 690.00 teco is usually 140.00 due to an old fashioned air cond, I have no way of setting the temp. so this leaves little left for food, medical co pays, etc. and they forced me to pay another 55.00 deposit saying because my bill is higher than my deposit, I said if I already have a problem paying my bill how do you think this will help me!! they also were rude nasty and just did not care, i swear if I did not need my AC I would use candles etc, I hate TECO. So I paid it or they were going to shut off a disabled persons power and because I had to pay the extra, I had only a box of saltines, a little milk and cereal and coffee to last me 3 weeks oh and some peanut butter, I hope it is not poison!!
so I will now be further behind and will never catch up and I guess they will ask for more deposit now because I will be late again, they treat us like something they scraped off the bottom of their shoe, if anyone reads this and would like to start some kind of protest please do and i will be the first to sign!
