Ameren Corporation is an American power company created December 31, 1997, by the merger of St. Louis, Missouri's Union Electric Company (formerly NYSE: UEP) and the neighboring Central Illinois Public Service Company (CIPSCO Inc. holding, formerly NYSE: CIP) of Springfield, Illinois. It is now a holding company for several power companies and energy companies.
One of its customers aggressively pointed out, "This company can go choke on a corn cob. Absolute nightmare to deal with. I got a disconnect notice for $2.67 in the mail. Of course I paid it, but when customers have $500-$1000 bills and are not getting a shut off notice, yet I did over $2.67. They have been on my case since 4 years ago, the wrongfully shut off my power. A mistake on their part, which they admitted. It was supposed to have actually been my neighbor. They took their sweet tune turning it back on and the police were sent to my house with the Ameren worker. The Police officer said Ameren had me flagged as an angry customer and sent him with the Ameren rep to restore my power. When I told the officer what happened, he was floored and said he understood why I was angry. I have 2 words for Ameren. one begins with an F. The other is a You."
