Trying to rob a single mother in her own home with ridiculous charges!!!
Two weeks ago I had an eon representative knock on my door to take a meter reading, as they have many times before, i of course let him in to do so which took him a matter of seconds. He contacted the company with my readings and then left. I then received a call from eon yesterday, wanting to know when they are going to recieve payment of £55.00, which is what they are charging me for the man coming to my house! firstly i pointed out that i hadnt asked for him to come that they could have phoned me and i would have read the meter to them myself, and that if i had known they were going to try and charge me that then i wouldnt have answered the door to him... to which her reply was that they would have charged me the same price even if i wasnt at home! how can they do this? its daylight robbery! if i was at work and they knocked 3 times i would be charged 3 times... for the privilage of a knock? can i get out of these charges or refuse to pay them? i now have a debt on my pre payment meter which i fear is for this charge, if i change my supplier will the debt continue to be taken? eon are theives and they should be stopped from doin this! helen x
