I owe consumers gas 2000 dollars. My question is I stay with my dad and a law firm put my debt on his bill can they legal do that?

Nina, We have heard of utility companies adding the bill to the account of a relative or the current owner of a home. Whether this is legal or not, we aren't sure.

We recommend you start by contacting the Michigan Public Utility Commission. They have a pretty good website that discusses utility bill issues, and they offer a toll-free number you can call if you have a complain:

Next, we recommend you contact a consumer law attorney of your own. You can find one at NACA.net

We hope this helps!
