Bill shock for cus­tomer

Evening Times - - FEATURES -

A LEAD­ING en­ergy firm blamed a dim-wit­ted me­ter reader for run­ning up an elec­tric bill of al­most £2000 for a Glas­gow driver.

Wil­liam Fer­gu­son had been bat­tling fuel gi­ant npower for weeks over the whop­ping bill.

The dad-of-two ear­lier thought he was get­ting a bet­ter deal for his elec­tric­ity and gas when he switched to npower from Scot­tishPower

He was never in when the me­ter reader came to check his read­ings but cards were left ask­ing him to phone npower with his own.

Wil­liam said: “Npower claimed I hadn’t paid a penny for be­tween Fe­bru­ary 2007 and Au­gust 2008.”
