Power Company Wants Me To Pay Old Bill in My Name
(Hadley, MA, USA)
I had a gas bill under my name over 12 years ago. I moved out of the residence in which I was receiving the gas service but my former roommate and whomever took over my lease never transferred it into their name and racked up over $700 in unpaid gas bills! I am now 12 years older and wiser and am trying to start service in the same town but the company says I have to pay the bill in full before I open up a new account...how do I fix this? I don't have $700 laying around and I have no way of tracking down the ones responsible!
