POLICE have warned South Africans about thugs who come to their homes posing as service providers.
On Tuesday, they arrested a man pretending to be an Eskom contractor who took money from residents.
He was caught in Kaalfontein, east of Joburg by people who accused him of defrauding them. They questioned him and he could not explain his actions.
He was saved by patrolling cops from an angry crowd that wanted to beat him!
The 31-year-old suspect allegedly produced an Eskom employee card and claimed to be checking electricity meters.
