GeneralOh dear, looks like another small energy supplier is going bust? Pin

Just had an email from my energy supplier - only switched to them about three months ago - and it's an odd one: "top up your account tomorrow, and we'll add 10% to whatever you deposit".

I use more energy in winter than summer - obviously - so I pay the same monthly fee which means over the whole year it averages out (or normally leave a small credit)

10% interest is damn good these days* ... but that smells to me like "we have severe cash flow problems", or am I just being a cynical old OriginalGriff?

* Heck, 10% pa is damn good!
