BECKLEY, WV (LOOTPRESS) – On Wednesday, September 21, 2022 the United States Department of Justice issued a press release referencing a West Virginia ambulance service business owner who is being indicted by a federal grand jury for “willful failure to pay over employment taxes and obstructing the IRS’s collection efforts.” According to the indictment, Christopher J. Smyth operated Wyoming County’s Best Ambulance Service Inc., Stat Ambulance Service Inc., and Stat EMS LLC, all of which provided ambulance services in Wyoming County, West Virginia.
Mr. Smyth’s company “Wyoming County’s Best Ambulance Service Inc.” has caused confusion and many questions for the customers of Best Ambulance Service based in MacArthur, West Virginia. Connie J. Hall, the CEO of Best Ambulance Service, wants to make it clear there is no relation between Mr. Smyth’s “Wyoming County’s Best Ambulance Service Inc,” and Mrs. Hall’s “Best Ambulance Service” based in Raleigh County, West Virginia. Mrs. Hall advises, “legal action was taken several years ago against Mr. Smyth to force the stoppage of using the name ‘Wyoming County’s Best Ambulance Service’ due to the obvious confusion it caused in the community and hospitals.”
Best Ambulance Service, based in MacArthur, West Virginia was started by Connie J Hall and Paul Hall in 1993. The company has remained privately held by the Hall’s and has no business dealings in Wyoming County. Mrs. Hall wants everyone to know “…my organization has proudly served the communities, hospitals, and 911 system of Raleigh County for the last 29 years and we plan to continue well into the future.”
