Biggest Utility Scam EVER! Our utility bill has steadily climbed every month we have lived in the Redneck Riviera. October and November, the windows stayed open during the day - both bills were over $250. We were gone for 1/2 of the month in December, unplugged the entire house except for the fridge, jacked the heat down to 65, luckily it was nice and in the 70's while we were up North. Our bill was the HIGHEST since we moved into this house in June! Almost $300!! I called them, she tells me, "we've had sev. calls on this issue this month..." I asked to have my meter read monthly, "we don't do that, everything is done remotely, no one drives by or stops to read." HTH can you fairly and accurately bill ppl if you don't read meters? Basically, they are taking all the water/electricity (that they buy from someone else) and divvying it up per paying customer based on sq footage, # of rooms, etc...It's disgusting. But the longer we live here, the more obvious things become. Don't buy a house here either, the realtors and flippers are all in bed together and there are more sink hole damaged houses then honest ppl....just sayin. Run Forrest Run!
