MCWD warns vs new modus operandi of meter thievesCebu Daily News
THE Metropolitan Cebu Water District is warning the public not to fall prey to the new modus operandi of meter thieves.
The water district received a report that some unscrupulous individuals visited a consumer, pretending to be MCWD employees and said they would replace their meter with a new one. But the consumer noticed that the vehicle they were using did not bear the water district’s logo. Also, they were not bringing a replacement meter.
Water service processing and inspection division manager Joselito Vidal advised the public to always ask for a job order in case someone offers to replace their water meter.
Consumers are also advised to ask the personnel to present their IDs.
For further verification, call the MCWD Call Center at 254-8434 local 0, 412-1836, 0917-3219821, 0917-5464278 and 0917-3255970.
MCWD gives cash rewards anybody who can give information leading to the arrest and prosecution of meter thieves and buyers of stolen meters.
