Man impersonating CFE employee to extort businesses arrested

Arriaga, Chiapas — The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) has denounced Jorge Luis N before the Attorney General of the Republic for the crimes of improper use of uniforms, insignia or acronyms to which a person has no right.

The complaint came after CFE was alerted that Jorge Luis N was posing as a CFE employee and extorting money from business owners. According to the investigation Jorge Luis N was detained by members of the Secretary of State Public Security when he was located inside a business in Arriaga in the state of Chiapas.

At the time of his arrest, José Luis N was found wearing a long-sleeved shirt with the “CFE Federal Electricity Commission” logo. CFE reported that complaints verified that Jorge Luis N also sometimes wore a field staff uniform when visiting CFE clients. He has been transferred to federal facilities in the municipality of Arriaga to face charges.
