Re: Telco Scare Tactics

I think with an email like that you should be contacting Ofcom rather than them, misrepresentation is a really naughty thing to do, its so bad that if they come to your front door and misrepresent their service, or lie and Ofcom (or whoever) gets wind of it from complaints, Ofcom will shut them down.  Usually its a 3rd party that do the selling, so when someone from SWEB comes to your door wanting you to buy their electricity, its actually another company who get paid for each sale, but if they tell porkies then Ofcom (or whoever) come down on them hard and can actually shut them down.
