Just the worst experience, extending for a whole year. Can't go into detail here because the issue is complex involving bereavement, a property with energy bills I have inherited and a spectacular lack of communication between SP departments. It's just impossible to get any sense out of anyone to resolve an ongoing problem. Everyone on the end of the phone is polite and helps the best they can but they are held to a script and set of procedures and are unable to help in any real terms. Oh, here's another trick. One department promises to put you through to another and then the phone goes dead! Really nice.

I had a voucher emailed to me in november for the £66 credit from goverment for october. I still havent had the £66 for November. I was told by the company that i have to top up my electric key 3x and then it would appear, so i topped up 3x and nothing. Trying to get hold of them and they put you thru to a robot. The company is a complete shambles and something needs to be done about it.

ScottishPower, it is RUBBISH POWER. Rubbish company and ill-mannered customer services. Thieves in all the word senses. I filed a complain against them with the ombudsman-services. The problem since 05/09/2022 and every customer service I get in touch is more rubbish than the other and they contradict each other: one said no direct debt set and the second said it is set. We should all file complains against them with ombudsman-services, so that they behave and respect. DO NOT ACCEPT THEM BEING RUBBISH, DUMP THEM IN THE BIN WHERE THEY BELONG

The worst company ever.. 1. Waiting time on chat couple of hours, when they respond and you not gonna see message they disconnecting. 2. When you agree something with them, out of nowhere someone is changing your agreed things 3. Direct Debit - have to fight with SP to lower your DD, they are charging at least double time. When you lower, after one month they are increasing DD.

The worst energy provider they just changed my meter to a prepayment meter, when we had agreed to a payment plan absolutely useless. I need to change provider.

Horrible customer service especially from customer service agent Martynas. I will be changing energy providers as I am constantly having issues with my meter and cannot get a hold of Scottish power.

Terrible. Just moved into a rental flat supplied by Scottish Power. Their own system won't recognise the account number they sent me, nor the post code, yet the MPAS Operations query I raised confirmed they are the supplier. Useless chatbot, eventuall managed to get hold on someone via Twitter so they may now have my opening meter reading on their system. I'll be moving away from them ASAP.

I can not even being to describe the distress this company has caused me as a landlord over the last month. I am the owner and landlord of a property. My property was vacated by the previous tenant on 10th January 2020. I had account number under my name whilst the property was vacant 10th Jan 2020 - 22nd June 2020 until my account was closed on 25th June 2020 and the final bill was paid by myself along with the updated gas and electric readings supplied and then the account closed with details supplied on the new tenant who went into the property on 22nd June 2020 and was then responsible for the payments and who has kindly provided me with proof of her account number. However there seems to have been two mistaken default accounts opened in my name during the period of June 2020 - September 2020 where I was not liable for the bills. I would like to state that at no point did I receive a letter, email, call to my home address or the landlord's address to state that these accounts were set up in my name again an error on your part. They only came to my attention when I checked my credit score which has been damaged significantly dropping from 999 to 483 due to your errors and having spoken to My Credit File they notified me that there is a Court Judgement of £393 in relation to Scottish Power Electric account and Adverse scottish power account reported against my name for Dual fuel account both which are in error all while my tenant has an account and is paying the bills for the property. I can not express the effect that this has had on my mental health and well being. I have had to take time off work for the stress caused and to try and sort this out and it has taken hours and a lot of backwards and forwards emails and calls and I have also seeked advice from Citizens Advice and have consulted a solicitor about damages. During this whole process I did not even know about the account being set up in my name and have not received a call, letter, email or anything to inform me of this, I don't even know how this is legal!! I have sent over 8 emails, tried calling on 10 different occasion amounting to over 10 hours and have opened two complaint references and scheduled in 3 separate calls with the complaints department who I was told would help me but who have never even been in touch even after I have waited 6 hours in total for them to call. It has effected my mental health so badly that I am having to take time off work and I cannot even explain the bad customer service that I have experienced during my time trying to sort an error which was the fault of Scottish Power. I am still trying to get these errors fixed and have been doing so for a month now without any succes and I will be seeking legal advice for the damages caused!

The customer service at Scottish power is appalling. I have been trying to repay my arrears and no one will help. The staff at the company are difficult to understand, rude, unhelpful and don’t want to help. Even though I ring them to try and get on top of my arrears they never communicate with their team and still call me saying I’m in arrears however they are unwilling to help. As soon as I’m up to date with my bills I will change to a different supplier. I’m absolutely disgusted with their stinking attitudes.

Trustpilot Thanks! Your review counts. You reviewed ScottishPower Add photo David 5 reviews GB Rated 1 out of 5 stars Do NOT use Scottish Power At first we thought our boiler was playing so, as anyone would we called a gas engineer to check who, found that our meter wasn't flowing despite of us being in credit. We rang Scottish Power, the first few calls the call center put the phone down on us. Once we had finally got through to a call handler they blamed US for being in debt and became VERY patronising. We were told to top up, so we put on another £20 as advised. When we rang back we were again told it's our fault(??). After 2 days of ringing Scottish Power a call handler finally came to their senses and found out THEIR systems were not picking up our smart reader an we were assured that we'd have a gas supply by the end of the night....nothing. Day 3 we rang again, it took another day of false promises that our meter would be replaced in the evening. Day 4, a meter engineer finally came out to replace our meter. I am appauld at the handling of such a simple situation. I am currently in the process to claim compensation but how long will that take?

Dreadful company and I would not recommend them to anyone. Increased my direct debit despite being in credit by over £700. Tried to contact them but totally impossible. Phone is automatically cut off. Used online chat tool and gave up waiting after 2 hours. Noticed that they actually replied after 16 hours, as if I'm going to wait around for that. Utterly useless company.
