Thread Name: Utility bills scam
Subject: RE: Utility bills scam
This is what I have negotiated:

I am leaving the gas money where it is and the monthly payments will go up by £10 instead of £14.

They are refunding the whole of the electricity money they owe me and are reducing my monthly payments by £40.

The thing that does annoy me is that when I got the previous 6 monthly bill they then owed me over £400 for the gas and approximately £100 for the electric. The gas money was refunded and the monthly payments were reduced by £60. The electric overpayment was not refunded and they insisted that the monthly payment should stay as it was.

I feel quite rich today!

However, based on previous experience the refund will take a lot longer to be credited to my account than it normally does to be taken out of it - they can always do that bit pretty swiftly.
