Belize Electricity Limited has issued a release asking residents to be wary of individuals who go around posing to be employees of the company. BEL explains that employees and contractors carry an authorized BEL identification card. Anyone who claims to work for the company should be asked to present the identification card. BEL also states that no employee of theirs will ever request payment for services conducted.

The release was prompted after a resident of Buttonwood Bay reported to police on Friday April 11 that there was someone who claimed to work for the company and offered to pay the resident’s bill. Apparently the conman had been doing this for weeks where he went to various persons and offered to pay their bills and he even offered a discount if they paid their bills through him. He would then take their money and never be seen again. The one Buttonwood Bay resident was on to the con and pretended to want to use the service. He instead called the police and the con man was caught.

Police are yet to release the identity of the conman or whether or not he was charged.
