Po­lice warn of CRA fraud

Sentinel-Review (Woodstock) - - NEWS - SENTINEL-RE­VIEW STAFF

Wood­stock po­lice are warn­ing lo­cal res­i­dents about the re­turn of a fraud in­volv­ing peo­ple im­per­son­at­ing em­ploy­ees of the Cana­dian Rev­enue Agency (CRA).

Wood­stock of­fi­cers have re­ceived sev­eral calls from the pub­lic about calls from fraud­sters who claim they are from the CRA.

“The fraud­sters are threat­en­ing and ag­gres­sive in man­ner and will state that you owe money and will be ar­rested should you not pro­vide pay­ment,” po­lice said in a re­lease.

Po­lice rec­om­mended that you only re­port this type of fraud if you have pro­vided any per­sonal in­for­ma­tion to the fraud­sters, or if you have be­come a vic­tim of iden­tity theft or fraud.

De­cep­tive tele­mar­keters should be re­ported to www.an­tifraud­cen­tre-cen­tre­an­tifraude.ca/ or by calling the Cana­dian Anti-Fraud Cen­tre at 1-888-495-8501.
