Stettler RCMP issue warning of CRA scammers

Canada Revenue Agency will not ask for personal information by email, text or voicemail

Stettler RCMP are reminding us not to fall for scammers posing as Canada Revenue Agency representatives.

Now that tax season is here, you may receive a call stating that you owe the CRA an outstanding balance.

Often, the caller will say that an arrest warrant or other legal action will be taken if their calls are not returned. These types of scams are also now common through text messages or emails.

The CRA will not send you emails or text messages asking for your personal or financial information. They will also not request payment by prepaid credit cards or leave personal information on your voicemail.

If you receive a call saying you owe money to the CRA you should contact the Canada Revenue Agency as soon as possible.
