City Power has become aware of the impostors and fraudsters who seek to rob the community by producing fake identification cards claiming to be City Power employees, Comaro Chronicle reports.
City Power is warning residents not to allow any person, technician, or contractor into their property without first verifying their credentials with City Power, if in doubt.
Members of the community are encouraged to be vigilant and verify the identity of City Power employees and contractors who seek entry into their properties, by demanding they produce their ID card and the Job Card with work order number for the work they claim to come to do on it.
