Electrical scam

NSW Fair Trading received numerous complaints about an electrical contractor who had sent invoices to medium-sized companies demanding payment for the installation of power points and rewiring.

Upon further investigation, it was revealed that this work had neither been authorised by nor carried out for any of the companies in question. The companies were advised not to pay. For those who already had, Fair Trading took steps to obtain refunds. The contractor was subsequently prosecuted.
