Beware the ill fitting ActewAGL uniform

johnboy 1 March 2013

Canberra’s most fashionable crims like to dress up as police officers.

But for the less discerning low life ActewAGL has the thrilling news that an ActewAGL jumper and jacket has been liberated during a burglary:

ActewAGL and ACT Policing are reminding Canberra residents not to allow entry into their land by anyone claiming to be an ActewAGL employee or contractor without seeing their ActewAGL identity card.

ActewAGL General Manager Network Services Rob Atkin said, “This reminder follows a recent incident where an ActewAGL-branded orange and blue high-visibility jumper and GoreTex jacket were stolen from a staff member’s residence during a burglary. The incident has been reported to ACT Policing.

“We’re asking the community to be vigilant against fraud and remember that ActewAGL will never request face-to-face payment for a service at your property. ActewAGL staff or contractors seeking to conduct work inside a house will always present photo identification.

Rather than trying a direct con one wonders if this won’t help in checking who’s home prior to burglary?
