Copper Thieves Beware.....AT&T Is Looking For You

By
Mortgage and Lending with Guaranteed Rate NMLS# 2611 NMLS #151088

AT&T is now offering up to a $3,000 reward for information resulting in the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in copper thefts of telephone wiring. 

The South Fulton area of Atlanta has been hot especially hard.  A rash of recent thefts has left thousands in the area without phone service.  Renaissance Elementary and Langston Hughes High Schools has both been impacted recently. 

Each theft occurrence costs AT&T a minimum of $500.  This adds up quickly for the company.

You can reach AT&T's tip line at (800) 807-4205.

I've seen foreclosures stripped of all their copper pipes...One time, the appraiser never even notice them missing!  Can you believe that?

Rodney, Good for AT&T.  I wonder if they are doing it nationwide? Like Pat I have also seen those foreclosures stripped of their copper.

In our area, they not only take copper, they take electric meters & A/C condensers.

Jim & Linda....the article didn't say if AT&T was offering it nationwide or just in Atlanta.

Pat....You would think the apprasier would notice since the water would not be on and running.

Marchel....Copper theft is bad in Atlanta.

Tanya....We are seeing the same thing here as well.

Good, I'm glad they are going after them, it is costing us all every time they have to replace the lines.

Todd....So true. They cause more in property damage than they could ever get out of what they steal.
