Checked online banking this morning, as i do every day.

My normal direct debit to BG is £60 per month Gas and £57 per month Electricity. Got the last 1/4ly bill Sept so the monthly amount hasn't changed and i haven't been notified of any intention to change.

The fucking twats have taken £108 for the Gas and £59 for the elctricity. Whenh i phoned them up the nob on the phone told me that "they" have decided that from now on my monthly bill will be £108 for gas and £80 for electric as "i might use more energy in the future".

The over payment has actually left me in credit for both bills.

I have cancelled said direct debit and am switching.

It's only two months ago they took my monthly payment 6 times in one month!

fuckers 0 thats the prob with DD

i am with n power and at one point i changed to standing order - and they said that they didn't recognise it and made it really very difficult - i kinda said i dont give a shit what you recognise or ithat your systems aren't set up for it - i've paid you so deal with it

NewspiritsFromOldghosts Thu 23-Oct-08 10:20:57

I know, they are cunts custy. BG charge you more if you pay by standing order.

Tortington Thu 23-Oct-08 10:47:49

RAAAAGH! Have just gone to switch online to Eon, saves me about £200 and i get clubcard points.
Fucking nobrotting bastards won't let me switch as they have registered TWO electricity meters on my property. I'v been paying double bubble for over a YEAR!!!

Tortington Thu 23-Oct-08 10:56:44

fucking cuntwhackers - two meters? gt your money back and change fuckers

NewspiritsFromOldghosts Thu 23-Oct-08 10:59:16

Am on the phone to them as i type. They are trying to tell me they are only charging me for one, i have eon on the other line giving me the supplier numbers for BOTH meters.

Am going to tell them you have judged them as cuntwhackers. Will let you know if they hang up. grin

Tortington Thu 23-Oct-08 11:00:19

yes indeed the cunwhacker reference has a lot of sway in these situations

try cock muncher too - that always works to get a result

DP threatened to take them to court as they took money out of his account that he hadn't authorised which is theft. they refunded him pretty quickly after that. we are switching to utilities warehouse i think (BG tried to keep us by offering low bills so DP thinking now)

nickytwoooohtimes Thu 23-Oct-08 11:01:09

God, it is infuriating trying to deal with energy companies. It took us months to get our money back from Scottish Power.
The words 'small claims court' helped.

titfortwat Thu 23-Oct-08 11:02:32

i can't stand the bastards either. They just don't give a toss about customers.

NewspiritsFromOldghosts Thu 23-Oct-08 11:04:09

apparently i am not allowed to switch cos i have an outstanding balance.

YES LOVE, IT'S A FUCKING CREDIT BALANCE YOU STUPID BITCH

she is currently speaking loudly and slowly in a very annoying accent.

i am swearing.

nickytwoooohtimes Thu 23-Oct-08 11:05:01

shock
They really are usless cnuts, aren't they?

AuraofDora Thu 23-Oct-08 11:05:18

they all are feckers really
had to kidnap BG guy once to make him see how wrong they were!!
(well we locked him in and explained a very long tedious story where they were so in the wrong, it still resulted in a pre payment meter)

it is almost cartel-like the fuel companies
apparently there is not much difference between them (according to dispatches last night about 50p a week) and best deals are for new customers...so i guess you keep switching is the best advice

feck feck ..choice.... fecking ..choice ? fecking ..free market fecking feckington feck ... fecking bullshitting nonsense

needmorecoffee Thu 23-Oct-08 11:07:45

w eleft them for the same reason. And you speak to 47 different poeple, none of whom ever reads what the previous person wrote. Argh!

titfortwat Thu 23-Oct-08 11:08:06

Go to the obudsmen

dilbertina Thu 23-Oct-08 11:08:11

.....AND BREATHE EVERYONE!

titfortwat Thu 23-Oct-08 11:09:11

I asked them once where they lived, because we were all going around hers for a bath smile

NewspiritsFromOldghosts Thu 23-Oct-08 11:09:21

Fucking cunting fuckwits. angry

Right, i am now not allowed my money back (the credit balance) as they have not read my meter since sept and they are saying i might be lying about it being MY money?? WTF!

I WANT TO SWITCH LET ME GO!!

Christ, i feel like Nelson Mandela, there'll be a song about in the charts next

Freeeeeeee, free me from British Gas.....

NewspiritsFromOldghosts Thu 23-Oct-08 11:10:53

Now the stupid cow has told me to stop typing and listen to what she is telling me!

Please list your responses and we can take bets on which one will force her to hang up on me

titfortwat Thu 23-Oct-08 11:12:54
