An electrician should be able to spot a tap-off from your main panel, if there is one. That is the only way (barring some corrosion or damage to the main feed, at least that I can think of) the meter should still turn when your main is off. Then, you need to find out who has been benefiting from your supply of electricity and have them prosecuted for theft - report them to the police and the electric company. WV may have low electric rates, but if the home is not tight and insulated, you'll still pay more than you should. Might be a good idea to see if you can get someone to do a blower door leak test, and use that info to tighten up the structure. Often, this is subsidized by the local utility company...worth checking out and should help.
