Warning about bogus gasmen 

Dear Editor,

On February 1st, I was taken in by two men dressed as Disa engineers with official looking uniforms and correct looking IDs and a folder with paper work all marked DISA. The uniforms were blue with ” Disa service installation” over the pocket.

One was aged about 20 – 30 years, tall and good looking, the other about 40 years and not good looking, both Spanish. They carried a black holdall with their tools.

They said that the gas piping was due for renewal. They told my wife that the work would be free.When they finished they deman-ded from me 150 euro, saying the garantee and bill would arrive in the post.

Unfortunately I belived them and paid, as they seemed so official, but the contact number they gave me for Disa was a private number of somebody unknown and not for Disa. We called Disa later and they said they were not from them and they would do services only after notification.

I live in Las Americas. Please publish this as a warning to others and if you receive other sightings or victims please give them my e-mail address/tel. no. so perhaps we can get a better idea of anything that may help stop them.

I have been to the Police and denounced them.
