Energy theft is more common than most think. It costs consumers billions of dollars every year in the United States alone. In his new book Karl Seger explains how a utility can establish a revenue protection program or evaluate and improve an existing one. This how-to book includes a number of appendices with sample web pages, investigative reports, and more. The program will also help identify customer fraud and billing errors. Seger's advice applies to those associated with both large and small utilities.
Karl A. Seger, Ph.D., has provided anti-terrorism consulting and training for all branches of the U.S. military, the Departments of Justice and the Treasury, and for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. He received a grant prior to the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee to conduct a terrorism threat assessment for the event and to train local police in preparation for it. Dr. Seger assisted in the development of the Army's terrorism counteraction program in the 1980's and he was the contract writer for TC19-16, Countering Terrorism on US Army Installations.
