TNB meter tampering

There has been news on TNB combating power thefts all over the place. This is a very good step. This can prevent humongous amount of electricity wastage, and also increase efficiency in so many levels. Lesser carbon footprint, more profit for TNB, smaller bills for the average consumers, just to name a few.

However, despite the positive move, being in BolehLand, we somehow always manage to screw things up. Sad but true reality.
Its pathetic that TNB kept giving the same excuse over and over again - "meter has been tampered with" for EVERY freaking case. When asked for prove, they provided none. Its already a standard protocol for them to announce every single entity who uses TNB meter that they had already modify/tamper with it.

Its easy, its convenient, and at the end of the day, you dont really have to do anything other than slapping a fine on the consumers. Tak puas? Go complain la. We will still put the "outstanding" amount in the bill anyway. While many industry or household consumers did tamper with their meter, it is still a very moronic and typical Bolehland way for TNB to handle power thefts in such manner.

One question they need to ask themselves is, what is the quality of their meter in the 1st place? Can they even blame consumers if their own meter didnt take accurate readings from the beginning?

A good intention, a good measure.
Bolehland style, bolehland management.
A screwed up situation
