Baltimore Gas and Electric BGE BGE FORCING ME TO PAY BILL NOT MINE Baltimore Maryland
To Whom it May Concern:
I am now aware I am not the only person this has happened to, BGE holding bills over to the next tennant or to the owner of a property when a tennant/resident does not pay and denying service on the property until it is paid.
This seems pretty illegal to me, I understand there is a percentage of people who are stupid enough to defend someone who will comit a crime such as stealing public utilities, but I am not that person.
I moved in with my boyfriend at his house and my house was going to be vacant. We had discussed going back and forth (due to the economy at the time neither house was worth what we owed) . An old friend had previously mentioned he wanted to buy my house but would need time so I let him move in with his daughter giving them a place to live and keeping the house not empty. The agreement was for him to pay 1/2 the mortgage and the BGE bill untiull he could in one year assume the mortgage.
Seems pretty cut and dry but it was not, at some point he lost his job, custody of his daughter and while I felt sorry for him, he eventually destroyed my house. I began the process of eviction but he relented and signed a wavier of his rights, took his things gave me his keys and left. I have not seen him since that time. I tried transferring the power (BGE) and they want the prior bill of 6339.00 paid. They also want a home inspection, completely empty house, any information I can supply them about the former resident. All of which I have complyed with.
I have what little of my furniture that was not destroyed in a storage facility along with my daughter and sons things who would like to have the house back. But I dont think BGE will allow that. They are actually keeping me out of my house and anyone else as well.
The bottom line, even after protesting to MD Public Utilities Commission, they are not going to turn on power at my house because I knew this person, unless I pay his bill. Which I refuse to do, its against the law to force someone to pay a bill incurred by another or place a lien against a property for said bill.
Any attorneys..please contact me. I will file suit just for BGE staff implying I have committed a crime which is all documented. ITs bad enough they are going to cost me my house, make me pay a bill that does nto belong to me and then they are going to call me a theif ..yes..certainly sir..how far would you like me to bend over for you?
