Water Authority Metering Scam - No repercussions

Water was a government owned utility, and it was sold off to private industry.

Since then the price of water has gone through the roof with NO government intervention in terms of the consumer being ripped off.

The water authorities are not making enough money, so now there is a new trend in installing water meters that take false readings.

Owners are having their good working meters swapped for 'optimistic' meters that take fraudulent reading, and subsequently charged to the owners property.

The theft of money is a criminal offense, yet the water 'authority' is getting away with fraud, and NO ONE is doing anything about it.

One water company involved in such a fraud is Melbourne's
City West Water.
