I don't know if this is nationwide news or not but here on Long Island this is pretty big news.
Did you hear about the couple who were being overcharged by the electric company for at least 10 years... then when they proved their case the courts denied them because the courts felt they should've been more conscious of what their bills were? The courts said these people took too long to report this problem! Is it me or is this crazy???
Once again the middle class gets screwed without a kiss.
Where is the punishment for the electric company??? How many of you know exactly what you are paying for when it comes to your utilities?? What about the poor little old lady who is still living by herself on a fixed income? You're telling me she knows exactly what she is paying for? She has no idea! She's paying what the utilities are telling her!
This poor couple have been working their whole lives, paid over $10,000 too much and are told it's their fault???
Someone got a check under the table so that most of Long Island won't sue the bastards for being overcharged.
What do you think? Do you agree with the courts decision?
