CRA says – be wary of scammers!

CPABC says:

“Highly skilled scammers are impersonating the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) through telephone calls, mail, text messages, and emails.  If you want to confirm the authenticity of any CRA communication, call your local CRA office.  For information on scams or to report deceptive telemarketing, contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) online or call 1-888-495-8501.”
