Is there anyone who can assist me with my electric bill? I am beyond desperate. I am not asking for cash to be given to me, I will give my account number to anyone who is willing to help me. I have tried to make a payment arrangement with AEP, they will not work with me and referred me to local agencies. I have tried the agencies, and the only one with funds will not help me because I am not receiving social security disability. So, i'm lost. I have a termination notice, the total is $647.63, and the minimum that has to be paid to avoid having my electricity shut off on November 3rd is $509.43!=( If anyone could help at all, even with part of the payment, PLEASE email me!

The answer is simple grasshopper.
Very carefully undo the lock tab on your meter. Be careful not to break it, you will need it later.
Remove the meter fom it's plugs and turn it upside down and resinsert the meter into the plugs.
)))))REMEMBER: the plugs are carrying very, very high voltage.(((((
Work safely and delicately like a Bomb Squad Technician.
Now, reinstall the band surround around the meter and reuse the lock tab so it looks unmolested.
NOW your meter will run backwards, you will be bill free in no time.

Teach two German Shepherds to show all their teeth to anyone who comes by, ditch the meter and use jumper cables.

Hi Lost, many of us on this forum have fallen on hard times. Try not to worry about it. Worrying does no good. Being made redundant, or living beyond our means or borrowing money at interest are common problems.

If your elec is cut off, just try to rationalise it as a learning experience. I honestly believe prayer can help in this situation. Put your trust in the Lord, and pray. You may not see immediate benefits but over time you should receive God's blessings in your life.

I have found if you don't have enough money, a second job helps. It isn't any fun, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

Praying will not turn the electric back on. of course she will worry. So would you if your family were cold and you couldnt cook or have hot water. She needs to post more details and naybe even low incomes will send a few $$ that will add up. Where do you live?

We all worry about stuff. But the point is worrying does no good. Doughboy made an excellent practical suggestion - get a second job. Or seek help from friends and family.

But I've faced despair in my past, and its not all about money. Having the support of family & friends are more important. Or if you're spiritually inclined from you local church. btw even if you're not a believer prayer or meditation can de-stress.

Pray for the money. If your electric get's shut off, then God is punishing you for your sins because we all know how effective prayer is. Be sure to pray to the ghost of Enron.

I am not sure that appealing for help on a debating forum is the best idea. There is no way for people here to know if you are genuilnely in need or one of the many scammers in the world.

I would suggest you need help from a more local source. Do you attend a church? if so then some of your fellow churchgoers should be willing to help. However it is only possible for them to help if they are aware of your plight so you need to speak up.
If you don't feel comfortable taking financial help from people you know then amybe you could offer to do odd jobs in exchange for help wit your utility bill.

Generally the utilities will divide your current balance into 10 monthly payments added on to your monthly payments to help you budget your debt. If anyone in your household has a serious medical condition that would be jeopardized by your power being cut off there are laws to protect you. In some states there is an energy assistance program that helps middle income families on a temporary basis. In my state (NY) we have the HEAP program.
For extra income hold a garage sale, you should net at least $200.
Apply for food stamps, don't assume you won't qualify.
Sign up at a temp agency for weekend work and evening shifts.
Everyone I know is struggling with bills. Seems the only ones with extra cash (millions) are the politicians.

Also, many scams out there.

If you are in TX, GA, or PA take a look at www.PowerfulOpportunity.com

We may be able to get you switched if you are in TX to a new power company and save you a little money in the process. Just depends if you are in a regulated area or not at this point. You may have to pay a new deposit. You will still owe the old power bill, but perhaps better than getting shut off.

Nonsense.
"Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done."
Yup, thank God for you (LOST) being in the mess, you're (LOST's) in. When the power/electricity has been shut off, Don't forget to thank God. Thank God for the learning experience.
Muhahahaha, damn Christians, got nothing but NONSENSE Advice(s).

Cancel your broadband, telephone and TV subscriptions. If you are really short of money you should be willing to go without these services which are a luxury rather than a necessity.

the sad part is that their are so many out there that prey on the good heart of others. So many people say they need help when they really don't, they just sucker people in the sending them money. I've heard of people doing this and then they buy drugs with it. If this person really needs help then you can go the your local churches. They will help you once every so many months. If other agencies wouldn't help you - it makes me want to ask why? Talk to the local electric company, you'd be surprised at some of the stories you'll hear. I'll be praying for this person and if it is for real, I pray that God answer the prayers with a solution to your problems.

It's been over five months now.
You'd think the power company would've pulled the plug on you by now.
