Once again the ‘scammers’ are out in full force! Now that income tax time has come around, they are working the phone lines claiming to be calling from the Canada Revenue Agency and demanding money for ‘supposedly’ back taxes owing. This scam has been increasing in the past couple of months. If you receive such calls, please report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. Below is an article from the Canada Revenue Agency website to make our readers aware and to beware of any calls received asking for money or threatening legal action and/or arrest.
Beware of new telephone scams
Ottawa, Ontario, … The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is noting an increase in telephone scams where the caller claims to be from the CRA but is not, and is asking Canadians to beware—these calls are fraudulent and could result in identity and financial theft.
Some recent telephone scams involve threatening taxpayers or using aggressive and forceful language to scare them into paying fictitious debt to the CRA. Victims receive a phone call from a person claiming to work for the CRA and saying that taxes are owed. The caller requests immediate payment by credit card or convinces the victims to purchase a prepaid credit card and to call back immediately with the information. The taxpayer is often threatened with court charges, jail or deportation.
If you get such a call, hang up and report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
These types of communication are not from the CRA. When the CRA calls you, it has established procedures in place to make sure your personal information is protected. If you want to confirm the authenticity of a CRA telephone number, call the CRA by using the numbers on its Telephone numbers page. The number for business-related calls is 1-800-959-5525. The number for calls about individual concerns is 1-800-959-8281.
