Centerpoint Energy had been making up bizarre gas  meter readings for at least a year--whenever i complained they  just made up even higher unfounded charges but eventually admitted they were wrong and corrected. A few months ago after i wrote TXU  electric company saying i refused to have a radio active smart meter already banned in europe installed because they are  known to cause physical harm  ,someone from Centerpoint Energy came and installed one-=

trespassing on my property and he also physically assaulted me when i demanded he leave with his smart meter-refused to give his name or his bosses  name or phone number and when i said i would call police if he did not leave, he dared me to call the police-that his company had a "special" relationship with the police and that he would have ME thrown in jail for refusing to "do what i was told".He finally gave  me his super's number

when i went inside to call the police and his supervisor was dishonest,condescending and unapologetic and blamed TXU and Centerpoint Energy.  I called TXU after getting a bill from them that was THREE TIMES my normal bill and was told they would file a dispute with Centerpoint--blaming Centerpoint for the problem--i went ahead and PAID the part i did not dispute--about 56 dollars-or what my bill had been the previous  month--and sure enough  yesterday I got ANOTHER bill from TXU that was FOUR TIMES my usual rate along with a notice of disconnection in THREE DAYS

--this was apparently  in retaliation for my filing a complaint--then i also that day got a gas bill from Centerpoint GAS that was almost FIVE times my usuaL bill---MORE RELALIATION FROM Centerpoint and TXU----this is  CRIMINAL racketerring behavior that i have read Centerpoint has been found guilty of before but i guess since no one went to jail and they just passed the fine on to their customers/victims--

they must believe they can get away with anything--like assaulting and poisoning and robbing a 63 year old woman two weeks before her birthday who has never missed a utility payment in well over 25 years from this address.. UNBELIEVEABLE but true and since they OWN the PUC and actually SAY they also own the law enforcement people--THIS REALLY SHOWS WHAT THIS STATE HAS DEVOLVED INTO--a fascist police state.

Above two smart a**es

AUTHOR: RippedOffPerson - (United States of America)

YEah, we all get that the meters may not be radioactive. Jump down the lady's throat for misspelling and for concerns about its safety, but note, your nasty responses did not address her billing problems, nor did they serve any useful purpose other than to clearly define your arrogance and pompousness.

Uh no

AUTHOR: Stacey - (U.S.A.)

They are "smart" meters not radioactive meters.  And NO I do not work for TXU but there has been a huge controversy about the smart meters in Dallas.

Are you supposed to be taking meds for paranoia?

AUTHOR: Ken - (USA)

Your ROR rant is positively paranoid.

"A few months ago after i wrote TXU electric company saying i refused to have a radio active smart meter already banned in europe installed because they are known to cause physical harm ,someone from Centerpoint Energy came and installed one.."
A "radioactive" meter? 
 
These meters usually send data in a second or two data burst several times a day at a level FAR below anything harmfu.  There is NOTHING "radio active" (sic) about them.

Looks like you should stop stirring them up or pretty soon they'll be charging you six, seven, maybe twenty times your ususal bill.

"they must believe they can get away with anything--like assaulting and poisoning and robbing a 63 year old woman two weeks before her birthday.."
I read, somewhere, that if you put foil on all your windows and wear a tinfoil hat at all times, your "radio active" meter can't poison you.

You need to seek family or professional help, you are making a fool of yourself....even before your 65th birthday.
