Services-Question- Endesa Eroneous Bills  Just back from our usual six month absence and we have found a pile of Endesa bills with charges for the months we were away, even though the house is locked and the electricity turned off.  We checked the figure on the new meter and it’s half what they say our reading is on their paperwork.  I thought this new meter was going to magically send electricity usage to the bills department so that estimated bills would no longer happen, but it seems not.  Has this happened to anyone else and if so, what do we need to do?  We called into Endesa today and she suggested we have a faulty meter and would send a man out.  In my view the meter is correct.  It’s the data they receive their end which is incorrect.  As it happens, another expat neighbour has the same problem.  Maggie     Mariordan at AOL dot com
