 Beware of Canada Revenue Scams

Now that Tax season is upon us, The Ontario Provincial Police are reminding people to use extra caution with the rise of Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) scams.   

The O.P.P advised that although these scams happen all year round, there is an increase in complaints from the start of March until the end of April when they target people during tax season.

These 'scammers' pose as CRA agents, and use emails, phone calls, and even text messages to get money and personal information from their victims. Their contact always seems urgent and they use aggressive language and threats to scare people into making immediate payments.

Below are a few helpful tips to prevent being scammed from people impersonating CRA agents:

- In most cases, the CRA will use registered mail to contact consumers - not email or phone.

- Contact the CRA directly to confirm you owe back taxes or are entitled to a refund.

- Never provide personal information over the phone, by text or email.

- The CRA would never request payment by money service, bitcoin, gift cards, or ask you to pay over the phone.  

What to do if you think you've been scammed:

- If you have already shared personal information, contact Equifax and Trans Union to place fraud alerts on your accounts.

- If you have already shared banking information, contact your financial institution to place alerts on your accounts.

To report a fraud, contact your local police department and/or report the incident to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre http://www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/index-eng.htm
