Hounslow Police have received reports that bogus energy company representatives are offering to top up the householders meter with £50 of credit for £25.

The energy companies are able to determine that credit has been added to the meter but they haven't received payment for it so bill the customer which means the customer pays twice.

If you are approached, please notify your local Safer Neighbourhood Officers or Hounslow Ringmaster Tel: 020 8247 6056.
