Pushy scammers impersonate CRA employees and demand either personal information or payment for a made-up fee or back taxes. They will threaten arrest – or worse – if the fee is not paid immediately. Scammers also alter parts of their story in the hopes of victimizing more Canadians. In the latest variation, scammers ask that the payment be made via iTunes cards. Canadians have to be cautious to ensure their personal information remains confi- dential and avoid being duped. Before taking any action, taxpayers should always verify their tax account by checking My Account via the secure CRA portal or by contacting the CRA at 1 800 959-8281. Taxpayers suspicions of being the victims of fraud, or who have given personal or finan- cial information in error, should contact their local police service and financial institution. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) – a partnership between the RCMP, the Com- petition Bureau and the OPP – is Canada’s central repository for data and resourceS on marketing fraud. Victims are encouraged to report any scam to the CAFC, either online or by phone toll-free at 1-888-495-8501. Taxpayer scams victimize Canadians
