CANADA REVENUE AGENCY SCAM PERSISTS
The OPP is cautioning citizens against a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) scam that persists in the region. Suspects call residents advising that if they do not pay owed money they can be arrested. This summer a Limoges area woman was contacted by a “CRA officer” advising there were four allegations and that she would be brought to court. The complainant then received a call from what she believed to be the OPP’s local number. Suspects posed as a police officer demanding her SIN number. The OPP confirms that they would not make such calls and advises residents to not give out personal information.
