CRA phone scam arrests imminent, says RCMP
Heard about those harassing phone calls, aimed at tens of thousands of Canadians, which claimed to be from the Canada Revenue Agency, demanding unsolicited payments? According to an August 23, 2019 news article, almost a year after CBC News’ investigation into the Canada Revenue Agency phone scam, a RCMP task force reports they have made 45 arrests in India, where the scam originated. But that’s not the end of the story. Canadian accomplices appear to have ferried the proceeds of the scammers’ crimes to India. More arrests in Canada are expected soon.
