Screwing Over Your Neighbors the Easy Way.

I was taking a look at the Con Edison website and noticed that you can log into your account and make changes to your Con Edison payment plan or cancel service all together. All the information you need is someone's account number. There is no password required or any other information required. When you log in, one of your options is "close my account". So what's to stop someone getting your Con Edison account number and shutting off your gas and power?

A quick web search shows the Con Edison account number for the "Hudson River Club". It's a defunct account now. But that's not the point.
