It looks like someone at BES Utilities HQ recently got a telling off or is getting sick of the things they are asked to do, as I recently received this slab of juicy information from a current BES Utilities Employee.
Grab some popcorn, here it goes;
Andy Pilley is the real boss and everything is shared at Darwin Court where the offices are. Commercial Power, Commercial Reduction Services and Energy Search all work from the same building. HR cover all the companies and data is shared between all. This includes bank details and other personal details. Massive data protection breach. The servers next to Andy Pilleys office prove everything as it is all recorded and shared there. The clock in machine has Commercial Power / Energy Search on the display!
Pilley has set two more companies up like Energy Search and two young employees are fronting them for him. The first is Power4Business Ltd fronted by Antony McCrorie (who is on the private jet picture). This is based in Blackburn. There is another new business called Action Energy LTD which is fronted by Chris Murphy and is based on Whitehills Business Park in Blackpool.
Oh dear oh dear. Pilley is roping young lads into this mess by (probably) promising them some warm sweaty man love or something equally as gross in return for them putting these scam broker companies in their names. Oh deary me.
Also at BES they have been told to give no refunds to customers who are in credit until February because of cash flow reasons.
LOL – its because they were fined £1million by Ofgem recently, for, get this, SCAMMING PEOPLE INTO CONTRACTS! Who’d’av’thunk’it!
Ofgem are informed that BES themselves have no sales team. There are two!! BES change of tenancy who sign customers with BES back to BES, BES retentions who sign customers back onto 5 year agreements a full one year before the contract end date. These are managed by Stuart Kelton who is officially an employee of Commercial Reduction Services but based at Fleetwood’s BES offices in the memorial stand.
Sounds like an overly complex setup to intentionally throw people off that may be investigating them for, lets say, being lying cheating bastards?
Card Saver is the latest scam which charges over double what normal card providers charge and sign them into a 4 year lease for a terminal that’s worth only £300 and charged £30 a month over 4 years!! They also operate here without a consumer credit license which they need.
Oh wow. So not only are they lying cheating scamming bastards, they are also selling card processing services without the correct licences? That is so unlik…. oh wait.
Graham Aspinall is head of compliance and knows everything about how closely all the brokers and BES work! Getting all the recordings from Darwin Court would prove massive data protection breaches and also prove how all customers are lied to and ripped off.
I’d love to get these recordings. If this anonymous poster gets pissed off at work again – please WeTransfer them to me 🙂
CRS do the renewals and they make up inflated rates to sign customers to BES. These again are all recorded! They use another broker called Electricity Renewals as they still have an account with Eon. This is just to get the contract end date and put termination in. When termination is accepted they mysteriously get a call from CRS to sign to BES! Electricity Renewals Ltd is now a dissolved company that Andy Pilley was a director of!
Wow. Lies upon lies, scams upon scams & I get the impression that this is simply the tip of the iceberg.
If you have an inside story from BES Utilities, Fleetwood Town Football Club or any of the related scam companies then please send them in via the contact form.
Thanks for reading, and please share share share 🙂
