Boil­ing mad over £2k bill

Sunday Mail (UK) - - The Judge -

Danni Rid­dock was shocked to be hit with a £ 2400 power bill – es­pe­cially as she had a pre­pay­ment me­ter.

She had moved to a new flat and switched to a card me­ter but Scot­tishPower es­ti­mated her us­age in­stead.

Fed-up Danni, 19, of Al­loa, said: “There’s an is­sue with the pre­pay­ment me­ter too. Ev­ery time I put £10 in, I’m lucky to get £1 worth of power.”

I got on to Scot­tishPower. They in­sisted the debt had been writ­ten off, paid £50 to say sorry and cred­ited her me­ters with £60.

They said: “Un­for­tu­nately, we failed to up­date the me­ter ex­change on our sys­tems.

“The me­ters are be­ing re­placed.”
