Having discovered that Winn Group had been mis-sold gas and electricity resulting in an unnecessary circa £100,000 being charged, Winns is not only successfully challenging the contract, but has set up a simple service for other businesses to enable them to claim.
Unlike the retail energy market, the business energy market is currently completely unregulated which has enabled many brokers and third parties to conceal commissions at the expense of the customer.
“We engaged an energy broker to get us the best deal on our gas and electricity,” said Winn Group CEO Jeff Winn.
“Speaking from a Winns point of view, we noticed that our electricity and gas bills had risen quite sharply and contacted the broker. The broker fobbed us off telling us that wholesale rates had risen, and it was just where the market was.
“He reassured us we had the best deal. We did not, and we were being lied to.
“Such mis-selling is very common in the energy sector, particularly within the business sector which is unregulated for brokers. Winns has suffered as a result and are now pursuing the mis-sellers and anticipate a good payout in compensation.
“An energy broker is acting for you and owes you a duty of care to get you the best reasonable deal or at least to be open and clear on advice on the alternatives.”
Winns’ new dedicated business energy mis-selling team is now available to assess your claim quickly and methodically, free of charge and on a no win no fee basis.
If it becomes apparent that mis-selling has taken place the team will work to recover compensation from the broker or third party involved, as well as seeking to break you from the unethical contract. Putting you in touch with an ethical and transparent energy provider, PanoServe, Winns will recover compensation and save you, potentially, thousands of pounds in the future.
Working on a no win, no fee basis with a price cap guarantee, there will be no upfront costs to pay and costs will only be deducted if the claim is successful.
