Hi everyone, I am new to TP but think that it seems a wonderful way of getting help and advice. My heart goes out to Jennifer and her sister and her situation just makes me grateful that my father is so gentle and accepting of his illness - at least for now! My Dad lives in the Midlands about 200 miles away from me but is so accommodating that he agrees to change gas and elec suppliers as soon as he is contacted by any other supplier. I have tried getting the Companies to take his phone number off their database, contacted his existing supplier to try and stop them changing his supply but it all seems to fail after about 3 weeks. The net result is that he gets a succession of bills from different companies and it takes ages to try and sort it all out again. the other maddening thing is that these companies won't talk to me about my dad's bills due to data protection. sorry if this seems trivial but it's making my blood boil !! Any ideas anyone ?
