'Fake' Electricity Key Scam Fears
7:01am 17th December 2011
Cornwall is being given a warning over fake electricity keys.
It is after a Falmouth mum was sent one in the post.
Cathy Eddy noticed the letter it came with looked suspect so called EDF.
Staff told her they had not sent it and not to use it.
Cathy said, "I was worried about vulnerable people like the elderly if they had it sent through they would just go on and use it. People with not a lot of money can't afford to be done by things like this."
Alison Dunstan from Consumer Direct said, "It's a fairly new scenario and one I've not come across yet. But scamsters unfortunately pick up new things all the time. They are becoming increasingly clever and it's all too easy to be taken in."7:01am 17th December 2011
