- And here in Farm Country, I have a FOAF who had a skyrocketing electric bill at one of his pump sights. Someone tapped off it with romex and was using it to power his RV camp in the nearby woods.
what is a FOAF?

Stealing IS spineless. But I prefer to Manage People my own way without involving the Police.

>>> I prefer to manage people my own way ...

Wouldn't the landlord (or all owners aka the association in the case of a condo. or co-op) have some responsibility from that time forward after the problem was called to his (their) attention if tapping into someone else's electrical line between the meter and the subscriber's premises were done?

Allan J may be on the right track. OP's daughter should read her condo association by-laws they may be responsible for 'outside' areas, etc. A careful reading of the rules and or a call to the association president would be very useful.

Gary gets the prize for recognizing my web-speak.
