In the Nikolaev area exposed group of "handymen" who helped another to steal the electric power, the newspaper "reportsToday".
As told a press - the secretary the Organized Crime Control Department of the Ministry of Internal AffairsSergey Fedchenko, two of them - being and acting employees regional power - developed the electronic device, which at installation in the electronic counter much more (time in 10. - bus. ) underestimated indications of the consumed kilowatts - hours. Was operated "ноу - by Hau" by means of the panel from the conditioner or the TV.
The third member of group was engaged directly in "bug" installation. The counter then sealed up false seals. "Handymen" found customers, after all one of accomplices was engaged in the regional power... the accounting of indications of the counters, the second too there worked earlier.
Field investigators established that the organized criminal group worked nearly 2,5 years, since October 2009-го. How many handymen earned - to tell 14 facts of breaking of counters are difficult, proved only, but for one "bug" asked to 9000 UAH. Business is brought to trial, now they are shone by term from 2 to 6 years.
As for customers of service, it were both inhabitants, and owners of firms who consume a lot of energy and wanted to save. Calculations show: at consumption of 2000 kW - h (it is, however, possible only for the large enterprises) in a month "bug" pays off in 15-16 months.
According to Fedchenko, criminal case against users "ноу - Hau" wasn't brought. But, as explained to us in help service "Kiyevenergo", according to Instructions for use the electric power, they should pay considerable penalties. Their size pays off so: total power of all devices is multiplied at 24 o'clock and for the term of violation.
Term is defined or from the moment of seal installation, or for the last three years (term of limitation period). It means that the desire to save will turn back for guilty 5-6-multiple losses.
It is interesting that on the Internet there are a lot of descriptions and offers of similar devices, and even without intervention in a counter design. The price from 100 hryvnias for a set "Make itself" (details with the instruction) to 1000 hryvnias for a finished product which should be fitted to the counter or to include in the socket.
