I am rejecting this because what the business shown you is not what I received,after I told them I never signed anything and provided proof they were like well aep doesn't deal With that the lady acted as if I was lying.I was never shown anything stating that I only had weeks to come up with the payment and then I get a disconnect notice.The lady was like id advise u to contact the person u spoke with aep doesn't deal with that when I have emails saying the guy did go thru aep to get me started she lied

I reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *** and find the resolution is satisfactory to me

The $fee is a convenience fee that BillMatrix charges to process a payment to AEPIt is not an AEP charge; it is a fee charge by BillMatrix to provide the payment service for the customerThis fee is solely retained by the vendorThe customer could have mailed the payment
directly to AEP, which would have resulted in the cost of the stamp
Today, 11/30/15, an AEP credit coordinator attempted to contact Sudeep Shah at ###-###-####There was no answer therefore a message was left for MrShah

Good afternoon The following information is provided in response to your inquiry based upon the customer’s concerns The customer’s meter was misread. On 9/20/2017, the customer provided a picture of her meter reading to the AEP Ohio Customer Service Representative (CSR)
assigned to her complaint. Based on the picture, the meter reading was correctedThe CSR completed the high bill order and the AEP Ohio billing department has corrected the bill and a new bill will print by 9/28/2017. The customer had stopped the payment for the original bill ($450.11) that came directly from her bank account on 9/11/resulting in a return check fee. The CSR removed the $return check fee because of the incorrect bill. Because the customer was able to stop the payment, there is no money that should be refunded to the customer. Additionally, the CSR placed an order to replace the customer’s meter with an AMR meter at the customer’s property on 9/25/at 6PM to prevent future meter reading errors. Please consider this matter resolved Thank you,Paula S

Service was connected on Monday, 1/11/at 11:a.m(Service was disconnected on 1/8/at 12:p.mdue to requirements for service not being met.)
Today, 1/12/16, an AEP credit coordinator spoke with *** *** about her complaint. The coordinator advised that AEP did
attempt to contact her by phone on 11/30/about providing a lease and ID. Advised Ms*** that we left a message on her "home" phone. She said that she does not have a "home" phone. The phone number we are showing as a "home" phone is actually her cell phone, so the message would have been left on her cell phone. The coordinator explained that until she meets all requirements for service, the account is not considered active. The service is subject to disconnect when the requirements are not met. Based on our discussion, the phone number type codes were corrected. She also had a concern that no one was available to assist with the verification of lease and identification. She called at 5:p.mon 1/8/2016. The group handling the verification process is only available Monday through Friday 7:a.mto 3:p.mcentral time. The coordinator advised that he would pass her concern onto management

1/3/Today, 1/3/18, an AEP Ohio customer service representative called and left a voicemail message for Mr***Explained that it appears that his meter was misread on 8/1/as he was only billed for KWH, when he normally uses around 2,KWH during that time of the yearExplained bills
were coded and estimated for September, October and November due to a dog at the propertyWe are not sure if the customer has recently gotten a dog or it is possible that we have someone new reading the route in that area who heard a dog and is not comfortable reading the meter with a dog presentMeter readers are not required to enter a yard if they hear a dog barking even if that dog may be inside since a lot of customers have doggie doors where the dog can exit the house at any time and possibly bite the meter readerThe bills were estimated based off of the low August 1, reading which appears to have been possibly misread since it is much lower than the customers history at this property during that time frameThe bills were way out of line and much lower than what his bills run during this time based off of the customers historyThe bill reflected each month that they were estimated and the customer did not contact us to inquire on why the bills were so low during that time frameWe were able to obtain an actual reading on 12/8/of and we corrected the under estimated bills and sent out a corrected bill on 12/13/The customer provided us with a reading on 12/23/of which would confirm that the 12/8/reading was correctInformed the customer that we did receive the payment of $and we can of course set up a payment arrangement for him and either split the remaining balance up over the next months plus the actual bill each month after or we can take the remaining balance and break it up over the next months and then put him on a budget which would begin at $a monthThe CSR provided her direct contact information to contact her should he be interested in setting up either of these arrangementsPlease consider this issue resolvedThanks, Sherry
