How to get free gas, electrcity, water by blocking roll over meter
Hi, i had an idea of drilling a small hole through the cover of my electric meter and placing a long pin and positioning the pin in a way that blocks the roll over dial on my meter (one that shows the meter reading), i have one of those old meters not the smart ones
please share your thoughts should i give this a go, i want to do this, any thoughts welcome, does anyone have experience in doing this?
High risk, low reward. I'm sure they have meters into every sublet neighborhood. If the sum of each house doesn't add up, they'll probably suspect tampering. Pretty sure it's common for them to suspect tampering.
Then again, it's likely such a low amount that it's impossible for anyone to pick up manually, unless they have software to analyze it.
super super risky cus electric companies are known to press charges to the full extent if youre caught tampering with such, especially as its their electric box and they own the rights to it, and youre "breaking" it, in their eyes. not worth!!!!
if your power bill goes from $100+ to $0~, they're going to know something's up, and then they would end up sending an inspection person out to check on it. Shit has happened with us. We went away for a week or two, came back, and at the end of that month, someone came over and inspected it.
