ProteCt yourself from Scams
There are numerous CRA scams that prey on Canadians. It is our responsibility to be vigilant and never give out personal information over the phone.
Mostly these scammers demand information related to Social Insurance Number, credit card number, bank account number, or passport number. This is your personal information and must be protected at all times.
The CRA will never:
- · use aggressive language or threaten you with arrest or sending the police
- · ask for information about your passport, health card, or driver’s license
- · demand immediate payment by Interac e-transfer, bitcoin, prepaid credit cards or gift cards from retailers such as iTunes, Amazon, or others
- · leave voicemails that are threatening or give personal or financial information
