Complaint Review: Southern California Edison SCE -
Southern California Edison SCE S C E Extortion of security deposit by SCE for false pretense of "establishing Credit" years after the accounts has been established California
*Consumer Comment: Except...
On November 30th I was hit with $61,000 "Request for deposit to establish credit"
What is your understanding of establishing a credit. Usually the utility company pulls credit when a property is purchased to determine the deposit.
I am an owner of 5 office buildings in Irvine, Rancho Palos Verdes and Torrance.
These buildings were purchased back 2 to 5 years ago! We have been paying our bills from $10,000 + per month per building. We have always paid our bills except a few extensions that we asked S C E.
All of the sudden I get this $60,000 invoice that if I don't pay it in 10 days, they will shut the electricity for 175 businesses!!!
Mind you again, we are fully paid.
I contacted their offices "Mr. Paul Garcia" and he said he is the one that made the decision. I told him, go ahead and shut everything up, I dare you !!!!
This is an extortion.
I have sent to the mayors of those cities and public utility commission multiple emails.
If you get hit with high security deposit from S C E, don't just pay it...fight it
