Griev­ing fam­i­lies tar­geted by fraud­sters

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Revenu Quebec would like peo­ple to be vig­i­lant, es­pe­cially if they live in the Estrie re­gion, where many cases of fraud in­volv­ing false Revenu Quebec doc­u­ments have been re­ported. Doc­u­ments that ap­pear to come from Revenu Quebec are sent to fam­i­lies where some­one has re­cently died, ask­ing for money to pay the over­due in­come taxes of the de­ceased. They are then asked to send the money to a postal box. Ac­cord­ing to Revenu Quebec, over­due ac­counts are never col­lected in this man­ner. If you think you have re­ceived one of these fake Revenu Quebec let­ters, please contact ei­ther the Sureté du Quebec or Revenu Quebec.
