Customer Question

I run a heating oil buying group. One of my members has just reported that his 95 Year Old Mother-in-Law was charged over 48 pence per litre for a large 1600 litre order at a time when most customers were saying around 24 pence per litre. I think unscrupulous oil suppliers are taking advantage of elderly customers who are unaware of how prices have fallen. This is not the only case. I wish to take the suppliers to task, but have been warned they play rough. Is there any precautions I need to take?

This 95 yr old paid £800 more than others would have paid. The supplier accepted she was over-charged and gave her an insulting 10% discount. We're dealing the the largest fuel oil suppliers in the country (Certas)
