A business electricity customer has been called 20 times a day since moving into their new business premises 9 days ago. The customer has been called by several different companies but one of the unsolicited callers stated that all of the callers are part of the same “business energy network” and will make sure that the calls will stop if they signed up there and then, according to Energy Advice Line.
The cold caller also stated that the meter was “unregistered” and if it is not “registered” this week the supply will be disconnected.
Julian Morgan, Managing Director of the UK’s leading business electricity price comparison service Energy Advice Line said that this is completely untrue, the cold caller has no ability to disconnect the supply and the terminology used of the meter being “unregistered” is designed to strike fear into the business electricity customer to get them to agree to the contract. The premise that they had the ability to end all of the other cold calling also highlights that the calls are being made from the same organisation but under different company names which could be designed to create the perception of choice for the customer. Luckily the customer did not fall into their trap and went online to compare prices before making a decision to go with a very competitive offer with Energy Advice Line.
