All Year Phishing Email Alert Phishing emails look like they come from a legitimate source. However, when you examine the sender's email address, it is not the correct email address of the sender. Instead, the emails are sent from criminals trying to obtain information or infect your computer with a virus. Phishing can come from any source, including banks, etc. There have been reports of phishing emails that appear to originate from Haverford Township, but do not. If something doesn’t look right, the email address doesn't match, or you aren't expecting an email from that person – be safe and do not open the email. The Township recommends that you:
  • Do not click on or use the links inside the email.
  • Do not click on or open attachments in the email.
  • Do not call any phone numbers listed in the email.
Please call Haverford Township directly if you are unsure at (610) 446-1000.
Comprehensive Plan The Comprehensive Plan (draft) will be front and center at the Township's Planning Commission meeting on June 9, 2022 starting at 7:00pm.
