Imposters pretending to be EAC employees scamming consumers

eac, electricity authority

The electricity authority (EAC) on Friday warned consumers to be cautious of people posing as agents of the authority, who are scamming people for money.

According to an announcement from the EAC, the scammers are cutting electricity to buildings or homes and then telling the consumer to pay up to restore power.

The EAC said that it has nothing to do with these individuals and called on consumers to be particularly careful.

The authority added that an interruption of the electricity supply occurs when there is a breakdown in the electricity network that affects a wider area, or there is a planned outage for which affected consumers are informed beforehand, or when a problem occurs with the fuse or an EAC microswitch for which people should call their technical services.

Also, EAC said that power is only cut if a bill is not paid, but consumers are also told beforehand.
