Ca­na­da Re­ve­nue Agen­cy scam per­sists

Vision (Canada) - - News -

The OPP has conti­nued to re­ceive se­ve­ral com­plaints from re­si­dents of Rus­sell Coun­ty re­gar­ding a fraud­ster im­per­so­na­ting a re­pre­sen­ta­tive of the Ca­na­da Re­ve­nue Agen­cy (CRA). This has been an on­going scam, by ei­ther e-mail or te­le­phone. Fraud­sters in­cite pa­nic in re­si­dents by being quite ag­gres­sive and per­sistent in clai­ming that so­meone owes mo­ney be­cause of an au­dit. The OPP re­minds re­si­dents to be aware of this scam and to not take any im­me­diate ac­tion. To be cer­tain, it is best to contact the CRA di­rect­ly and those wi­shing for more in­for­ma­tion can contact the Ca­na­dian An­ti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
