Customer Question

i was tricked into a 5 YEAR Contract by a very dubious and dody utility company called BES. The ''brokers'' who called me i've asked for the contact details and the recording of the call and they won't supply it.. I only have a 3 yr lease on the shop so why would i have knowingly signed a 5 yr contract. The 5 yr lease came to light after my first bill which was shocking, i tried to swap to sse who by now i'd had chance to do my own search. SSE said you're in a 5 yr contract and SSE are a very poor company with a shocking reputation. I said to the brokers who called me from day one i intended to stick with N-Power who already supplied my first shop. If i've been paying more at the second shop than i would have with Npower then the contract is void. I also believe i was tricked into the 5 yr contract so it's void and i believe it falls under the unfair contract length anyway..
