Tax scammers out in full force this season
Scammers posing as Canadian Revenue Agents have been contacting people, demanding money and threatening legal action in an attempt to get personal information. It’s important to know that the CRA will only each out to you by certified mail, not by phone. If you are suspicious, contact the CRA directly. You should also be skeptical if they are looking for your personal information or request unusual payment methods, such as Bitcoin. If you think you have been a fraud victim, contact the CRA immediately.
