The electric company apparently hooked up the meters incorrectly in some new apts. that I moved into last year. I kept my electric bill paid and up to date every month and when I moved out of the apt. I closed my account. The electric company has recently contacted me and told me that they had the meters in the apts. hooked up incorrectly and I still owe them money because they weren't charging me enough. I have not lived in the apts. for over 3 months, nor had an account with the company since then. Is the company allowed to charge me for their mistake? They are threatening to send me to collections.
