(KMOV.com) -- A Maplewood woman is crying foul after getting hit with an electric bill she says she shouldn’t have to pay.

Renee Cunningham has lived in the Westfield Court Apartments for six years.

She has the usual electrical devices and has always paid her bill on time.

But recently, she received some shocking news about her electric meter.

“Well, they told me the meters were switched, and they’ve been switched for 11 years, they’re just now catching up, and they’re making me pay backwards a year for my apartment, which the guy below me has been paying for,” she said.

Unable to afford the amount Ameren asked for, and wondering why she was paying for the company’s mistake, she called News 4’s Mike Colombo.
