Beware scams over energy bills!

With soaring global energy prices leading to an unprecedented rise in household energy bills, the Energy Bills Support Scheme will deliver a £400 non-repayable discount to eligible households to help with energy bills from October. There is no need to apply for the discount – energy suppliers will deliver this support to all GB households with a domestic electricity connection over 6 months from October 2022.
For full details of the scheme and how it will operate, please refer to the government’s official guidance which can be found here: –
Please be aware – the scammers have already swung into action, sensing an opportunity to extract bank details etc. from unsuspecting people by inviting them to apply for their energy bill discounts, even by using the Ofgem logo in communications to lend authenticity to their deceptions. As you will see from the government’s guidance, households do not have to apply for the discount and will never be asked their bank details.
