    Advice needed- electric meter bypassed. 4th Sep 08 at 2:38 PM
    I need some advice on this please, I have no idea what to do about it and am absolutely petrified about what might happen.
    I returned to my property last week after it had been rented out to a 'friend' in order to get it ready for a new tenant only to find the the electric meter had been bypassed. I have now got a new meter for my new tenant but in the process of British gas changing the meter they've obviously found out that it had been bypassed in the first place.
    I know that it is my responsibility to check these things and that I've been incredibly naive and way too trusting, but I honestly had no idea what was going on and now British Gas have told me that the police will be chasing me and that I could end up in prison. I can't afford to get a criminal record due to the nature of my job.
    Has anybody experienced this or does anyone know what I should do?
