Article Title: An Automated Fraud Elimination Via Electrical Signal Monitoring And Recording Device (AFEESMR)
by Fina O. Faithpraise, Effiong O. Obeisung, Asiya, E. Asiya, Oluwaseyi A. Ilori, Chris R. Chatwin

An Automated Fraud Electrical Signal Monitoring and Recording device was designed and constructed using all required electronic components. The device achieved the evaluation and monitoring of the time power was supplied through the public supply (Electricity) and the supply through the alternative power generator automatically via the indication of an on/off(0/1) states on the monitoring device for a specified period of time. The compilation and computation of the results over a certain time frame characterized signal strength which was used to checkmate the accuracy of an estimated electricity billing system, which is a common practice in this part of the nation by electricity distribution companies. The result from our investigation in a particular household in a specific month through the electrical signal monitoring and recording device reveals that, the electricity bills send by the distribution company was outrageously estimated and fraudulent. As customers are made to pay for power they never use, this is also corruption. We opinion that the general acceptability of this device will help to reduce corruption in the public power sector as well as theft and fraudulent activities in large organizations that are using both electricity and alternative power generating system backups. In this specific nation where corruption is seen to be endemic, its reduction in the power sector will go a long way to foster national development and sustainable economy as well as improving the standard of living of the populace.
Keywords: alternative power generators, outrageous fraud elimination, signal monitoring, recording device.
