If your landlady speaks french maybe she d help you out with the phone calls (especially as someone recently posted that he thought he d been scammed on the english helpline) 

maybe someone s pirating off your meter? Turn absolutely everything off and see if the meter is still going round

They did take real readings earlier this year and refunded us twice. Our landlady who lived in the house for 20 years said never ever did they have such bill. New bill came in the other day and it is really winter kinda amount...

It isnt your annual reading account is it? We pay a amount  each billing cycle but it is only a average amount worked out ERDF which is set at the start of your contract, then for the May/June cycle (end of their year the annual tally is done and this year we  had to pay a higher amount which is a reconciliation of all the months less any amounts already paid. Some years it will be less and others more.

Hope this helps.
