Public Utilities Overcharging Low Income Customers
Public Utilities Overcharging Low Income Customers could be cause for class action lawsuit
Some public utilities have been violating the Public Utilities Act by charging low income customers a late charge in excess of 10%. They are also compounding these fees in which past amounts are rolled over into the next month's bill. Complaints have been filed with some state Commerce Commissions but the utilities continue to charge the excessive fees.
If these public utility companies are engaged in charging low income customers excessive fees on past due amounts, the utility companies could be subject to a class action lawsuit brought against them by the customers who have sustained monetary damages a result of this problem.
