CRA Scam

Is CRA calling you?  Don't respond, it's a fraud!

Saugeen Shores community members report receiving phone calls from CRA Investigation Department.  The caller gives instructions to call or have your "retained attorney" call back and if you don't, "Good Luck."

Don't be fooled, CRA does not phone taxpayers to advise they have been audited.  These scammers use automatic phone dialing equipment to call every telephone number and they are working their way through our area code. If you call back, they will ask for your name and personal information.  Don't give it to them!  They will tell you that you have been audited and you owe money to the Canada Revenue Agency.  Don't send it to them!  They will then give you instructions on how to pay, which will be through a money transfer service and that will be the last you see of your money. 

If you suspect that you may be a target of a fraud, or if you have already sent funds, don't be embarrassed - you're not alone.  If you want to report a fraud or if you need more information, contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501, go online at www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca, or contact Saugeen Shores POlice at 519-832-2500.
