Was she not around when she was doing the "work"? Did she pay them? (WHY?) Do you have pictures? What kind of wire?

Nothing wrong with it either... might be a cosmetic issue...

Is is a brick or concrete structure, with the wiring in conduit on the exterior? If so, that's pretty much the only way to do it.
