Scam Phone Calls “from” City Hall
Elkins residents report receiving phone calls appearing to originate from Elkins City Hall. On these calls, a man identifying himself as “Steve Day” claimed to be representing the mayor’s office.
These ARE NOT coming from city hall. Although of course city personnel may sometimes call city residents, we will never request personal information or payments this way.
If you receive a suspicious call, the best thing is to hang up and contact city hall yourself to investigate the legitimacy of the call. The main city hall phone number is: 304-636-1414. Departmental numbers are available by clicking here.
(Remember, the scammer can fake your caller ID into showing this number but is really calling from a different number. When in doubt, it is safe to call 304-636-1414 to verify what’s going on.)
