Northern Ireland Electricity has received reports of bogus callers claiming to be from NIE calling at a home in the Donaghmore area on Friday afternoon.
NIE would like to remind all its customers that NIE staff carry an official identification pass which customers should ask to see. The pass has the carrier’s photograph on it.
Fiona McClintock, NIE Customer Relations Manager for the area says: ““We take reports of anyone impersonating NIE staff very seriously. If someone calls to your door saying they are from NIE, please ask to see their ID pass. Legitimate NIE employees will be only too happy to show you their identification.
“If you are still unsure, please feel free to call NIE on 03457 643 643 and we will confirm whether or not NIE employees are working in your area.”
