The City of Cape Town alerts the public on electricity scams.
The City of Cape Town’s energy directorate has alerted residents about scam of unauthorized selling electricity at a discount price.
Mayoral committee member for energy Beverley van Reenen stated that fraudulent tokens will not be accepted by the prepaid meters.
She added that residents are encouraged to purchase electricity from reliable vendors and could make use of City’s load-shedding app or by visiting the City’s website to find vendors. The City’s app can be downloaded on Apple and Android devices.
The City of Cape Town would not give refunds and residents were reminded that if a deal seemed too good to be true, it probably was.
