Kent County Water Authority is still in the stone age,who the hell carries cash or owns checks anymore!

I have heard too many stories about KCWA, and their lack of excepting Debit/CC cards....

KCWA is playing a game, knowing that many people do not have Checks or cash anymore. So they are now making more money shutting your service off , reaping the benefits of charging you a fee to shut-off then a fee to turn back on. Many of the people I know ( Including myself) pay for everything on-line . This is done with a Credit or a Debit #(are you reading this KCWA). I do not know who is in charge , but it is high time you step down. Get with it !!!!!

Paper shows that credit card/Debit users win, not cash users

CC's acceptance is a must

(I found this on another anti utilitiy company blog)....

Often an unscrupulous utilitiy companies are trying to evade taxes of  several types by only accepting cash. They can more easily choose not to report  the transaction. If they do charge the customer sales tax, they can keep it for  themselves. Or if they don't report the transaction and don't charge you tax,  they still get to evade their year end business taxes and any other taxes that  are based on the dollar amount of their sales.

You need to get out more.

AUTHOR: Inspector - (USA)

Let me guess, you hardly leave your house or apartment and just sit behind a computer where you order everything you need right?

If you live in Pennsylvania you would know that all diners here only except cash.  Also, some medical offices will except checks but not credit/debit cards.  My credit union only issues debit cards with a checking account.  Isn't that true with debit cards?

Why would you ask if the water's safe....

AUTHOR: Ken - (USA)

just because they don't take credit or debit cards?  What does that have to do with ANYTHING?

What did they say when you asked why they don't take debit and credit cards?

You also state that as part of this HUGE conspiracy, they're doing this to shut off service and reap the benefits of charging a fee to re-connect.

"Often an unscrupulous utilitiy companies are trying to evade taxes of  several types by only accepting cash. They can more easily choose not to report  the transaction. If they do charge the customer sales tax, they can keep it for  themselves. Or if they don't report the transaction and don't charge you tax,  they still get to evade their year end business taxes and any other taxes that  are based on the dollar amount of their sales. " 

You should report this company to the federal government under the RICO act for federal prosecution...then to your states' attorney general to prosecute them for tax evasion and fraud.

Be sure you have all your evidence of this fraudulent activity to present with your complaint...you DO have this proof, don't you? You wouldn't want to look like a fool.

Where in the wide world of sports did you come up with all this speculative B.S.? 

Let me guess, you've had your service shut off for late payment and this is what you're saying will fix your problem....right?

"..who the hell carries cash or owns checks anymore!"

I'll assume this is NOT a rhetorical question and my answer is...EVERYONE I know....geez.
