Fraud Prevention Tips:
• Do not call these people back. • Do not provide any personal information such as social insurance number, credit card number, bank account information or passport numbers. • If you are pressured to access a fraudulent website, don’t. • The CRA will never ask you to provide personal information by email. • Be suspicious if asked to pay taxes or fees on lottery or sweepstakes winnings – this is a scam. • Never share access codes, user ID, or PIN numbers. • Make sure you choose a trusted tax preparer.
