BGE Complaint - BGE Security Deposit ?

Review by Nancdru3 on 2011-04-17
I can't believe that I am unemployed for the first time in 30 years, am only 1 month behind in my BGE bill and they want a deposit?? I want to organize a rally across from BGE but need help.

I will get it started if I have ANY supporters. Anyone??

It's not personal it's business. They supply you with electricity, they expect to get paid.

Does your utility company have any assistance programs that can help you, until you get back on your feet?

Not sure what you think a rally will accomplish. Asking for a deposit is not against the law. Good luck with your rally.

I wouldn't join your party, but you may find takers.

I personally think it is appropriate that when a customer gets a whole month behind on their monthly bill that the company becomes concerned. A few days late is one thing, but a whole month raises a warning flag.
