The Embrun Skating Club received an in-kind grant worth $325 until April on the rental cost of the Embrun Arena, pictured above. Phone scam still calling around April may be still weeks away but con artists are calling ahead to try and trick residents in Eastern Ontario with a phony tax man scam. An OPP report warns that several homeowners have received threatening calls from someone claiming to be a Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) employee and war- ning the target of the call that they were arrears and could see their bank accounts frozen and a lien placed on their homes if they did not pay off their alleged debt. The caller always tries to get personal or financial identification information from the victim, including bank account numbers and access codes. The CRA does not phone or email people about their income tax files or ask for personal information over the phone or through an email. The CRA already has all the information it requires in its own income tax data files. Anyone who receives a call from someone claiming to be with the CRA should refuse to provide any information and hang up. They should report the incident to the police, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, and also the CRA. – Gregg Chamberlain
