    Ridiculous Energy Bill 11th Jan 19 at 1:48 PM
    HI
    I left my old property last week, and just got a letter off scottish power saying:
    Your final electricity statement for 24 November 2018- 01 January 2019
    Your account balance/final statement : £346 ?!

    " Please call us with meter readings so we can confirm your final balance "
    and then says its " estimated "

    whats going on here ? I was living in a one bedroom apartment.

    Ok it makes more sense now, this is what they said on chat
    " Previous bill was generated on 26.11.2018 for the billing period 24.05.2018 to 23.11.2018. As per the bill you had an outstanding balance of £626.73. "

    Sorry for the immature language I just got frustrated because im unemployed and don't have lots of money to throw around.
    From what i posted in my previous post the large sum dates back for the past 7 months where im guessing there was a problem with the payment or a problem with my advocates payments.

    As soon as he's back i'll get in touch and hopefully resolve this.

    The only positive is that once the £450 has been sent to them, its settled and the account will be closed.
    And in future i'll make sure this doesn't happen again.

    Keep giving them meter readings, check the bills to make sure they have used your readings and either pay in full quarterly or keep an eye on your monthly direct debit payments to ensure you don't get a huge bill in a few years.

    I’ll get my advocate on the case, there must be a misunderstanding or error somewhere.
    New home, new start - and i’ll keep meter readings in this property !

    def a good habit to get into. Same with the water meter if you have one. Get an online account with all the suppliers and on the 1st of every month take all your meter readings and enter them online. That will make your bills completely accurate. Also make sure you set up direct debits and pay monthly
