Will be contacting the Ombudsman I agreed to pay British Gas £20 a month for a vacant flat I owned November 2018 Used no gas or electricity Paid £20 a month for 10 months..11th month get a bill for £56..so I cancelled direct debit paid over £300 although used no Gas no Electric as both off. Flat got let September 2020 I was receiving letters asking for money from British Gas asking me to pay money owed from November 2018 to March 2021 I spoke to someone at British Gas and explained no Gas could of been used and no electric..plus period they stated it was let out? My letting agent sent letting agreement to verify Women at British Gas said they would write off the £400 plus for the electricity?? There had been none used by me They appeared to be picking numbers out of the air Have since had 4 separate debt collection agencies harassing me 3 have gone the last one because o reported them to the Ombudsman for texting and leaving voicemails on my Ex partners phone?? How they got his number I don't have a clue..we separated in 2012..10 years ago It's since happened again by a debt collection agency called Pastdue They text my ex partner who forwarded it to me..they actually did not have my number?? I've explained everything to them and they want to letting agreement which British Gas already have. I've taken legal advice as I've never personally had an account with British Gas only found a letter from previous occupant who had vacated a year before I purchased the flat with no water supply at Auction. Since then I've had a letter from British Gas asking me to pay an electricity bill? Saying they've contacted me several times completely untrue The debt collection agencies were after Gas money My legal advisor is telling me that British Gas has breached the Data Protection Act by informing my ex partner of 10 years ago that I owe money.. I was mortified when I found out I don't owe any money..infact I've paid them £300 for an empty flat With no Gas or electricity used British Gas have always had a bad reputation estimating bills I will be taking this further..I've been continuously harassed..my tenant has been receiving letters..my previous address has been receiving letters relating to myself I will be seeking compensation for the distress caused having to be informed by my ex partner who I've not seen since 2012 that he was concerned I was in debt and felt it necessary to contact members of my family I'm so angry at British Gas they have broken the law They are not getting away with this
