EAC warns of scammers peddling a device to cut consumption

The Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) on Wednesday warned the public to be cautious as regards claims of sales representatives who promote a device that allegedly reduces power consumption and claim that they cooperate with the utility.

According to the EAC spokeswoman Christina Papadopoulou, the utility received several calls from consumers, especially from the Episkopi area, that they receive house calls from salespersons claiming to be from a well-known Larnaca-based company that promote the specific device.

“Salespersons of the specific company […] present themselves as associates of the EAC, to promote the device which according to their claims, helps in the reduction of electricity consumption,” an announcement said.

“The EAC makes clear it has no relation with this company and urges consumers to be cautious,” it said.

In addition, it added, “we want to draw the attention to the public of the possible hazards of using electricity devices without the necessary certification/control by the competent services”.
