Don’t get scammed! Beware of frausters claiming to be from the Canada Revenue Agency
Did you get a suspicious email, telephone call, letter or text message claiming to be from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)? If you’re being asked for personal information such as your credit card number, bank account number or passport number, this is a scam.
Keep these facts in mind
The Canada Revenue Agency will never:
- ask for your personal or financial information through an unsolicited email with a link
- ask for any kind of personal information through email or text message
- ask for payment by prepaid credit cards or gift cards
- leave your personal information on an answering machine
- threaten you
Even if these messages may seem convincing, they are scams and you should never respond to them or click on any of their links.
