Scammers back at it again….

We’ve received several calls since the holidays regarding the ongoing Canada Revenue Agency Scam. Members of our community have been receiving calls from an unknown person(s) described as having heavy accents indicating they are the, CRA, RCMP, or a member of the OPP.
They are informing the unsuspecting victims that they owe money to the CRA and that if it is not paid immediately a member of law enforcement will come and arrest them. Please remember that the CRA does not make house calls and law enforcement agencies will not come and arrest you on their behalf.
If you find yourself being on the receiving end of a similar call and you’re unsure of what to do, please call a family member, friend or even your accountant to verify if you do owe money before sending any.
