People should go to their local electricity office, use online payment options or counter service at convenience stores or supermarkets.

Daily News reported that there has been cases of bogus officials arriving with bills and cut-off threats to frighten customers into parting with money on the spot. Sometimes these are accompanied by people offering air-conditioning cleaning services as well.

There were no details in the report as to where specifically these cases had occurred.

People can call their local police or the electric authorities on 1130 24 hours a day if they suspect they are being conned.
