The farkers.
We changed suppliers on th e11th September because of the carry on we have had with them since we moved in 3 years ago and also because we were able to get a better deal with someone else who has better customer service.
Anyhoo, we cancelled our dd and they owe us arund £150 as we were paying monthly.
Today, we found out they have, without our consent, opened 2 new accounts for our house and started taking money our by two dd! Afaik, this is illegal, isn't it.
DH is spitting venom. God help the person he speaks to on Monday.

Thanks HC.
How long did it take you to get everything sorted? Sorry to induce post-traumatic-stress on you here!

Once Energywatch got involved, we got a refund within 2 weeks.

Surely its your bank who are in the wrong - allowing an unauthorised direct debit to be taken? I'd ask them why they let money be taken from your account.
