Had a strange occurrence today - at least to me as I’ve not come across this yet.
We had a man knocking on our door at 2PM claiming to be an inspector for Spark Energy (now part of SSE) and asking to visually confirm our meter readings.
We upload our readings via the website every month and in 4 years have never had anyone come to verify them in person.
Of course I would not let the man in but he was happy to either have me take a photo of the meter and show him for him to update on his PDA or leave a card with a number I would then call to verify the readings to a customer support desk.
Sounds highly suspicious to me as what would be the difference between posting the meter reading online vs giving them over the phone to a representative?
Am I just being paranoid? Anyone come across this before?
