    I have just called Scottish Power and have got a total refund of £70 for my old prepay gas and electricity accounts. Thanks so much for letting me know about this!!!

Surely they have all of this on their system, as did Scottish Power. They also suggested I contact my (housing Association) landlord. Not at all impressed!!

    I had a similar problem but it was to do with Supplier not accepting the final meter reading which meant supplier charged for gas not consumed = £20. It took me hours of phone calls, 3inch deep in emails and letters and 11 months to get the money back after beating the CEO over the head 5 times. The Energy Ombudsman was extremely weak (didn't want to make a fuss, did not deal with the facts) and said OFGEM should deal with some issues. OFGEM stated that it couldn't ... the system is broken, the suppliers are getting away with an unlawful practice and it wants stopping.

    See my post 21 Feb in Energy forum ...

    I successfully claimed back money from Extra Energy but I had to threaten them with the energy ombudsman. Look at the latter's website - it's useful. DONT give in to them. If you're right they'll have to pay up.

    Please tell me if I am wrong, but I thought refund of credit should happen automatically these days?

    I cancelled some old DDs last week, one of which was with Green Star Energy, received an email today advising they are now 'unable to take any payments' from me but that my account is in credit of £-31.83. This is an account I closed in August last year!

    I have spoken to them and they are going to refund me via BACS, makes me wonder if any other former suppliers owe me anything.

    When questioned Green Star claim it was because they never sent me a final bill.
    Love, peace & karma.

    GB Energy SLOW
    Requested refund from GB energy on the 19th September 2017 who advised the money should be refunded by 9th October 2017.

    I had to call them today (11th October) asking where the money is and they are claiming it been sent. Obviously this is a lie and I owed £330.81. My bank First Direct is very good at processing payments and even shows what is due to come in and out tomorrow. So there is nothing since the 19th September of any money from them.

    Not impressed. This should be automatically refunded when I moved suppliers and should've been paid by now. I refuse to believe it takes "14 working days". It doesn't, money moves between accounts a lot faster than that.

    Can anyone tell me if I can demand interest of late payment on this, since they are earning it and not me, on MY money.
