Beware of Fraud / Scammers

The latest trick by the scammers is to spoof their phone numbers and make it look like the call came from my accounting office. The scammer then threatens you that the RCMP are on their way to your house to arrest you unless you pay the CRA (as they claim) a lump sum of money, DO NOT FALL FOR IT! The real phone number for the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) is 1-800-959-8281. Hang up on the scammers immediately, do not try to discuss anything with them. If you think you have a debt with the CRA call the number I just gave you not the number the scammers give you! Call your accountant, like me if you are still unsure about the call. Beware, do not trust them.
