There's a way around it

I don't think it will work on a smart meter, but it works on the older style. Some Electrical Distributors sell a meter socket jumper kit. It's basically two insulated pieces of bus bars. You pull the meter, install the jumpers, cover the round hole left by the missing meter, and you get free (illegal) power.
The reason you need to know when the meter is read is so that you can change it back before the next reading. If they catch you, they'll try to charge you an estimated loss amount, along with a hefty fine.
