Smart meter telephone scam

phone scams

Some tenants have been called by a company saying that they have been authorised by us to change their property over to a smart meter and would have to gain access within 5/6 weeks. The company advised the next time residents tried to top up their card meter it would go straight onto a bill. The telephone number they called from was 0800 023 8992.

This number is a known nuisance caller and Angus residents are being advised not to engage with them. We have not authorised any company to change properties ┬áto smart meters and we do not get involved with changing tenants’ energy provider.

If you or someone you know has received a call like this, please contact Trading Standards on 03452 777 778.

If you want advice about energy switching, we advise you to contact the Home Energy Advice Team (HEAT)
