Re: Unauthorised Install

Looks too neat for a VM contractor! Seriously though, seems very funny with that cement in place, I would expect to see some cable somewhere. Only explanation I have is perhaps they have actually removed some cable. Have you had a probe in the grass channel to see if there is any cable at the bottom?

Re: Unauthorised Install

Hi Tudor

yes, had a good rummage this morning once I first noticed the trench and there is no visible cable anywhere. 

would it be possible that they got all the groundwork done then, before laying the cable realised they had the wrong address and tried to cover their tracks?

cheers

Re: Unauthorised Install

Or maybe they started the job and, before getting the cable in, then realised they were in the wrong place and tried to patch up what they had done before scarpering!

Re: Unauthorised Install

That’s my thought exactly! Not even a note left or anything!

let’s hope we can get to the bottom of this and find out who did it!

Re: Unauthorised Install

If any of your neighbours have CCTV, video camera doorbells etc. have a word and ask if their cameras captured anything around the time you think the work took place.

Re: Unauthorised Install

It's amazing that this is one of the neatest VM installs I've seen, and it was to the wrong customer.

Re: Unauthorised Install

I asked them once I first noticed the work and most were out at work etc. one neighbour said he saw a van that ‘possibly looked like Virgin’?? 
No video doorbells either but I’m considering buying one after this episode!
