AVON, OH (WOIO) -

The City of Avon is warning residents about a water scam.

Scammers are calling homeowners from a 1-877 phone number and telling them they need to get into their home to read meters. The scammers are also trying to access personal information.

The City of Avon Utility Department does not have a procedure in place to do this and residents who receive such a call should not give anyone access to their home or give any personal information to anyone calling and stating that they are with the City of Avon or City of Cleveland Water/Utility Department.

Anyone that receives a potentially suspicious call may call the City of Avon at 440-937-5740 to get verification.
