CRA Scams

The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre reported that Canadians lost almost $4.7 million to scammers claiming to be from the Canada Revenue Agency in 2017. So how can you protect yourself?

CRA WILL contact you via:

• Phone

• Email

• Mail

To verify your account, CRA may ask for your:

• Name

• Date of Birth

• Social insurance number

• Details of your account (such as information from your tax return)

CRA WILL contact you regarding:

• Notice of legal action to collect debts

• Location and name of your bank

• To begin an audit process

• To let you know you have mail in your online CRA account

• To provide a link to specific information you have asked for

CRA will NEVER:

• Text you

• Threaten you with arrest or jail time

• Ask for your passport number, driver’s license number, or any personal financial information

• Send threatening emails or voicemails

• Arrange to meet with you in person to collect payment

• Ask you to make immediate payment via e-transfer, bitcoin, prepaid credit card or gift cards

Steps to take if you receive a suspicious call:

1.) Request the Caller’s Name, Agent ID, Phone Number, and office location.

3.) Then call CRA at 1-800-959-8281 (for individuals) or 1-800-959-5525 (for business) to confirm that they are a legitimate agent.
