“Absolutely despicable company - left them in 2018. They reopened my account 2 years later (without me asking) and then 5 months later started sending threatening letters saying I owed them money from 2018. This is despite me having an email from them saying that my account was paid in full in 2018. I asked them to send a meter reading with the bill - they refused. They are now taking me to court.”
“Awful company, had nothing but grief. Over charged me to the tune of £800, refused to let me leave saying I still owed them money and tied me into a new unwanted contract. Took forever to pay my overdue money back and are now threatening to take me to court to pay a £35 admin fee! Atrocious.”
“Went to court with Enstroga!! They employed a barrister in an attempt to have a judgement set aside and their application was dismissed! They still have not paid the county court judgment. Not a law abiding company! No UK trading address. RIP Off Britain will be emailed tomorrow along with OFGEM and Money Saving Expert! Trustpilot are also being brought to their attention for posting fraudulent Enstroga reviews!! Beware!!!!”
“In court with Enstroga
I am in the county court with Enstroga in one weeks time. They are applying to have a county court judgement I obtained against them for overpayments they would not return set aside!!! I will let you know the outcome!! They are not just the worst energy company I have had the misfortune to deal with they are the worst company ever. I have over 40 years experience in buying departments and have dealt with thousands of companies!!! Stay away, do not use them.”
“Really awful company. Avoid like the plague !!! No Uk based staff. All run from off shore. God knows how they managed to get a licence Tom operate in the Uk energy market ! Dreadful service plus bad rates ! Tried to withdraw money out of my bank account without my authority ! Needs reporting to ofgen / ombudsman”
“Avoid at all costs. My 79 year old mother who is isolating and recovering from heart surgery. These cowboys threaten to take her to court over an unpaid bill. The last tenant paid their bill before they left. There was a months gap due to COVID before the new tenants arrived. The bill for this period was over £700, the meter readings clearly we’re wrong. My mom explained that she has never held an account with them, nobody was living there and it’s impossible to have such a large bill. The call handler told my mom the only way to avoid court action was to pay up. My mom calls me in tears and was going to break restrictions and go to the bank. I told her to call them back and ask to speak to a manager. In the meantime they issue a final notice email with the threat of court action. My
Mom lodges a complaint and two sleepless nights later she revived an email saying the issue is resolved. No apology, no explanation of how they obtained her name. I’m on it now. The rest of the over 55 community in my moms complex have been warned. This was disgraceful and shameless intimidation of a vulnerable pensioner. Energy Ombudsman is next, then Martin Lewis, why should this company be in any switch site? Oliver Peiffer you should be ashamed”
“Enstroga Ltd are trading illegally and are dishonest. I have a county court judgement against Enstroga Ltd but they are are unable or unwilling to settle. Yet, they chase me for a balance that is not due or owing. Beware, they are either trading illegally while insolvent or disregard English law as they do not have a trading address in the UK.”
“stay away from enstroga. they take money out of your account outwith your monthly D/D. when you try and switch to another energy company they reject it saying you owe them money. they actually owed me money. im still trying to get away from them.”
“Whatever you do please do not join this company, i was charged over £3000 for a months electric in a small 2 bed bungalow, they refused to check the meter, and never returned calls. I have now joined SSE and they have been great in checking and changing meter.
I can't stress enough how bad Enstroga are, nobody wants to say i told you so, stay away as they will rib you blind”
“Do not use ENSTROGA until you read my message.
I used ENSTROGA energy from 02/08/2018 till 27/08/2019. At the beginning, the electricity meter was broken. I contacted ENSTROGA to change the electricity meter in September. They came to change it in November. At that time, there was no problem with the bill. I paid them 46.27 pounds every month (2 People in my flat). There were two months that they were asking for extra money which were April 2019 and July 2019 about 160 and 70 pounds respectively. I will not tell the exact amount of the money on here as some people could steal my information to use it in the wrong way. About mid of July 2019, I decided to change the electricity company as I thought the amount of money that I paid to ENSTROGA energy supplier was too much than I expected. I switched to a new electricity supplier company via www.uswitch.com. From that day onwards, I have not faced with any problems until February 2020. ENSTROGA ENERGY asked me to pay the bill about 950 pounds. I was in doubt where this amount came from as I switched to the new supplier and they started charging me from August 2019 onwards already. I have calculated the amount of energy that I used when the electricity meter still worked which was about mid of November 2018 till the last day that ENSTROGA energy supplied electricity to my flat in August 2019. Then from using simple maths to predict the energy I used during the time the electricity meter broke, the total amount of money that I had paid was 300 pounds more than what I should have paid.
I had replied to all emails from ENSTROGA energy on the same day that they contacted me during February and March 2019. The way they contacted back was via both telephone number and email that they sent to me. I decided to contact back via email because it took me too long to holding the phone call until somebody came to speak to me (not less than 30 minutes each time when my electricity meter was broken). I am not a person who spends most of my time in my apartment. I also had holiday abroad about one and a half months. My flat mate had a holiday aboard about 2 months. The total amount that I had paid to ENSTROGA energy was almost 800 pounds and they were asking for the final bill about 950 pounds more. Did you think this is the correct amount of money? Many emails that I sent to ENSTROGA energy never got a reply back from them until the mid of April that they said ‘’We are still working on your request’’. Would you like to know what happened after that? The Credit Resource Solutions LTD contacted me via both SMS and email to pay this amount of money every day. If I would like to contact them via online chat, I need to provide some personal details. If you were me, would you provide them your personal details? I decided to contact via email back to email that they have provided. At this point, it is your turn to decide which electrical energy supplier you should choose. I would like somebody or some organisations which are in charge of this to look into and take care of the many consumers who have faced the same problem as me. I believe that there isn’t only me who have faced with the similar problem. This company does not work transparently as it should do.”
“Customer services, billing, managing and dealing with complaints, direct debit issues, rude and ineffective staff and generic and automated emails. Blocking reviews on Trust Pilot by stating customer references not been provided when it has. Therefore, Purposely skewing the average score.
Complaints resolved via the ombudsman, reported to Trading Standards and having to reopen a second complaint with Ofgem. Do not touch this company with a barge pole.”
“It has been two month since I paid off my bill, and I have tried to switch to another company, their response is that they cannot find my payments. By not finding my payments I have not been able to go on to another company and switch. They keeping me hostage and they are not the cheapest company out there. Their customer service is seriously bad. As an example, I have been on the phone to them every day for the past week writing things down, in order to make a case to the Energy Ombudsman. Customer service drops line on you so you have to go through the same thing two or three times per day. Their managers are always in the meeting, and the problems seem like very typical of that company. So really it is not as if they are not aware of the problem, but I think what it is, is the company works as an extortionist mafia type organisation. When you pay, you overpay, you don’t get your money back, you don’t pay and then try to pay all in full your money get “lost”. I mean, you know you’ll pay your bills right? Well to them its just a joke. People do not go to enstroga, not even when they seem to be a cheaper option, your nerves worth more, much more. You will never get back your time wasted on this racketeers, they act like a Ukranian government stealing Russian gas and stripping own people of any dignity they have left. I am genuinely surprised that electricity is still working......”
“This is an utter shambles of a mess of a company. They are deliberately slowing consumers down in their attempts to change provider. The tactics they employ are shameful. At the end of the day, I was FORCED to submit my DD details in order to move. 3 Months later, they are STILL taking my money. I have NO choice. 'EXTORTION' definition: When money is taken under threat.”
