CRA SCAM – DON’T FALL FOR IT!
Dufferin Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), have recently been receiving complaints from our local citizens regarding suspicious telephone enquiries. These callers are requesting personal information, and in most cases, relating to alleged outstanding amounts owing to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).
The CRA will not contact you by telephone for any personal information. OPP are asking our community to be cautious about giving personal information to anyone in these circumstances, and only to trusted individuals whom are known to you.
These fraudsters typically target the most vulnerable of our community and we are asking that you notify our Detachment if you receive calls of this nature.
