1. It is addressed to UNKNOWN
2. No NEW Prices were enclosed, and
3. It was sent in 'April 2012' *
* I want to see a frigging date on post, an actual day date, not a vague sometime in the month date.
And let's not forget that the bloody thing was sent out to UNKNOWN in the first place, how can you send to a letter to unknown. I accept that commercial properties may have changed hands and the previous tenant may have had an account with one utility company, but all of the utility companies and I deal with most of them, seem to have no trouble in tracking down the telephone Number of premises. If it is a multi tenanted building the office suites either have their own metered supply or are re-billed from the landlord through a sub meter, the first option means that the tenant is billed direct and therefore the meter is attached to an individual address within the building, which they, the utility company must have had in the first place, don't you think? And if it was re-billed through the landlord and they had changed companies they wouldn't be unknown in the first place, now would they? Arrrrgggghhh
And why can't someone phone and say something like,
Hi, sorry to trouble you, but British Gas here, we previously supplied electricity to the property you are in to the previous tenant and to meter number so and so. We don't seem to have your details on file and would like to get it sorted out for you ASAP, before you run up a big bill. Can you give me your company details so that we can log you on to the system. Oh and by the way as you are a new customer, these are the types of deals we can offer you........
But no, this is a letter to UNKNOWN, and Unknown does have an account Number!!!!! stating that you have a contract with us, but as you have not renegotiated it with us, so we are increasing your prices
OR IS IT JUST ME BEING FUCKING OBTUSE, AGAIN!
Oh and by the way I do not have any electricity contracts with British Gas at this time or in recent past.......
Best enjoyed hot, for best results,

I kid you not, those were the actual instructions on the packet, and so I ask,
