hi, bought new business

received phone call where they claimed to be my energy suplier, but actually they conned me into switching from npower to opus energy

i was unaware of that.

i want to cancel it

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

hello?

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
This is breach of contract by false representation. That is they are representing to be an energy supplier and you relied on those representations. They lied. No matter how they dress it up they lied.
You should write and cancel. Tell them this is fraud. You should be released and do you do not consent to the contract because of the fraud.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

thanks

but they will just say they have a telephone recording which shows i said yes to this 'contract'

will me letter be sufficient?

they already said i cant cancel

there is also no cooling off period

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes it will. There is in cooling off period normally. But this is fraud, you can't be held to the contract.

what shall i do if they dont accept my letter?

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
They have no Choice, they induced you with fraud.
That's it, it's illegal. It's fraud.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

they wont admit to fraud

i need more legal advice

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
It's breach of contract as I have said by false representation. Thus means you can end it based on the fact they to,s or led you to believe they were your energy supplier.

The contract can't be based on fraud.

Does that clarify?.
