The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) has warned customers against falling prey to fraudsters on the planned upgrading of STS prepaid meters on its network.
In a statement the EEDC, Head of Corporate Communications Emeka Eze, said the upgrade will be free of charge, and at no cost to customers.
According to Ezeh, the warning became necessary because of information received by the company about the activities of some unscrupulous elements who are extorting unsuspecting customers in the name of upgrading their meters.
“The process of upgrading will be simply by punching into the meter the Key Change Tokens (KCT), which will be provided to the customers alongside the credit token, when they go to recharge their meters, “ he said.
