Scammers pose as municipal agents

Johannesburg – The City has warned residents to be on the lookout for scammers posing as municipal agents. 

  The municipality says the scammers threaten to cut off services unless consumers pay them.

  City of Joburg spokesperson Nthatisi Modingoane said there are currently no municipal agents assigned to disconnect water or electricity supply.

  “Credit control has been suspended during the national lockdown, and the City will not be entering homes to suspend services, even if the account is in arrears,” Modingoane said.
