The Berryville Police Department has been
made aware of a telephone scam involving the billing department for the Town of
Berryville Utilities Department.
Residents of Berryville are receiving phone calls stating that they are
delinquent in paying their water bill and must pay immediately over the phone,
and are being threatened with a cut-off of water service. This
is a scam; please do not ever provide personal or credit card information over
the phone to an unsolicited caller.
The Town of Berryville never calls requesting payment over the phone for
any service. If a water account is
legitimately in arrears, a notice is sent via mail through the United States
Postal Service and never by phone.
