The Sun alleges that EON Energy accepted £6 million a year from Age UK to target elderly with “expensive rates”. UK senior citizens were paying as much as £1,049 per year for gas, which is £245 more than the cheapest rate provided by EON Energy (according to the independent.co.uk).
EON responded with saying that their tariffs were comparable to regular market energy rates, while Age UK completely disavows the claim of paying EON Energy for such a scheme.
Contact EON Customer Service Immediately
Major Newswire urges seniors that are customers with EON Energy to check their energy bills immediately. If you see any discrepancies, you should not hesitate to contact their customer services team immediately using the EON contact number provided here. Be sure to spread this information around your community to ensure Major Newswire can gain validity of these allegations or otherwise invalidate them to help speed up litigation, help elderly EON customers, and/or prevent further propagation of this scheme.
To be fair to EON Energy, elderly customers prefer fixed tariffs because it makes their expenses more predictable. Charities will often take a commission from referrals which is fair business practices. However, selling a bad deal is not.
On a lighter note:
