Mark's complaint against Economy Energy

Complaint against Economy Energy

So we have been customers for a while. I checked our account and we are in credit about £500 for gas and £500 for electric when i asked for it back i was told they wanted to hold on to 4 x my direct debit!!! WHAT? My direct debit is clearly to much. It is my money and you have paid me no interest for the period you have held it. When demanding it all back i was told no guarantees get back to you in 28 days! I have always overpaid and you now refuse to return my money. This is theft. Avoid these con artists.

WOW!! Thanks. This proves their actions are incompetence at best and fraud at worst. You cannot issue this as a policy then train staff to say you cannot have your money back. Great find and great document i will follow this up tomorrow!!

Good luck Mark. Citizens Advice say this. You can claim credit at any time. You’ll need to give them an up-to-date meter reading. THE DECISION IS YOURS. GOOGLE & COPY: Claim back credit from your energy supplier Citizens Advice

Kara - how do you think this all came about. I did message you on webchat and this is where you told me I can't have my money back - The lady on the phone tried the same line with me. It is clear that you are training staff that this is policy but putting something completely different in writing. This might or might not be illegal but it is certainly imoral. Shame on you.

I worry for the vulnerable and less tenacious when you are using such dirty tricks
