Water Bill Collection a Scam

According to Police Chief, Cecil Funderburgh, some Eastland residents have been receiving telephone calls from someone pretending to represent the City of Eastland, and trying to collect water bills. The callers are using a method known as “number spoofing”, where your caller ID shows that the call is coming from a number other than the real number.

The scammers make it appear that the call is coming from Eastland City Hall, but the calls are not made by nor authorized by the City. If you receive such a call, please report it to Eastland Police Department, (254) 629-1728 after normal work hours and (254) 629-1700 on weekdays from 8AM-5PM.

Don’t fall victim to this type of scam!
