    Yes they are. MSE was even recommending people might want to switch suppliers last week.
    Then the solution is simple - the sockie needs to move his "account" from British Gas to random other supplier.

    Maybe he should get a prepayment meter. PAYG.

    Well if they'd accept regular meter readings so that I get billed accurately I'd set up DD but I'm not going to do than when they stick me with an estimate amounting to more than twice the amount of energy I've actually used. Yes, it balances out in the end but I am trying to stick to a monthly budget.

    As usual the problem is between the computer and chair.

    Yes, I have submitted a complaint via their complaints page & I'm keeping transcripts of all chats in case I need to take this to the ombudsman

    Your issue is probably with:
    1. User
    2. User refusing to use Direct Debit
    3. User trolling them
    4. Energy company wanting rid of user because of the user.
    5. Gricer being a fantasist.
