Conman targets Cape Town residents
Cape Town - Officials have warned residents about a man who pretends to be an electricity meter reader in order to gain access to homes, and then robs them.
Home owners in Bellville, Parow and Plumstead were apparently targeted by the conman, reported Eyewitness News.
A Bellville resident said jewellery was missing after the so-called meter reader left the home.
A city spokesperson said residents should ask for the identity card of employees claiming to be from the City of Cape Town.
The card should give a name, staff number and department.
