my neighbour informs me of a scam that some of these supposed guys
tried to do this very afternoon at 3pm.

after pulling some stunts with you, they show you a red wire attached
to the meter board which supposedly
meant to be illegal - they called it a 'bypass' (as if to imply that
it is stealing power or something of the sort) and then taking a
picture to threaten you with a report saying that tnb would fine you
and all kinds of things and asking her to settle with them.

my neighbour also took a picture and also informed that she would be making a police report (she's a smart woman) and I believe they left after giving her their hp no. but they finished what they had come to do.
should i get more info i'll post it again.

you should note that these guys are not tnb guys per se but
contractors.
so take note of this.
