Are Military Families Victims of an Energy Scam?
by Lizann Lightfoot
Does anyone else feel this is a issue? I know we've been hit a few times with outrages electric bills even when the house was empty for a month.
Are Military Families Being Scammed by their on-base Energy Company?
Imagine this: you live in military base housing, where your service member's paycheck is supposed to cover rent and “normal utility usage.” Then you receive an electric bill for $400. You have no idea why, so you contact the energy company. They say you must deal with your base housing management office. The Housing office tells you that everything at the house seems normal. So you cut back and conserve energy. The next month, your bill is even higher! You now owe almost $900, or an entire paycheck for many military families. When you complain, the Housing office says you must pay your bill, or be evicted within 3 days.
Sound like a nightmare? Unfortunately, for military families across the country, this is a reality.
