I received a notice from the bond street collection agency it was in regards to an account with ontario energy savings corp they said I have a client account with them. They are claiming that this notice that i received on January 12th 2009 is the final notice and that they are acting on behalf of ontario energy savings corp and that i need to pay $736.35 and failure to pay will impact my credit rating. we never signed up with them and this notice is in mine and my brothers name. About 3 years ago when I was living in a house these people came to our property while my brother and i were cleaning out the garage, they said they were with ontario hydro in Oakville and they were there to inform us that the rates for hydro and gas were going up and they wanted to see our last bills received to see how high they were sitting at. We got the bills and showed it to them and they said with what we were paying we could be entitled to a small refund of $75.00 fro each bill in the length of time we were living there and needed the bills to take to their supervisor and that if entitled to the refund we would receive the bills back with a check. We had informed them that we were moving and it didn't really matter because we weren't going to be living there anymore and they presisted to say that we would get the refund for past months. we never signed a contract, these people took off with our bills and we did receive them back with no refund so we just assumed we were not entitled to one, since then we have heard nothing from these people until now asking us to pay for something that we never used or signed up for. I am very upset because they said it will affect our credit rating and i am planning to move in July and need my credit rating to stay in good standing order.
Please help because I only have until the 17th of July to pay these people with money I don't even have before they mess up my credit rating.
