Big Six energy supplier Scottish Power was today ordered by regulator Ofgem to improve the way it deals with customers or face a sales ban.
Ofgem found the firm was making customers wait for too long on the telephone, forcing a quarter of calls to be abandoned, while too many bills were also being sent out late.
Ofgem warned the Spanish-owned firm that failure to meet new targets would result in it having to suspend sales activities.
It has separately launched an investigation into the gas and electricity supplier's treatment of customers.
