CRA scams have been going for a few years now to the point where they are happening too often. Even police departments such as the Oak Bay Police were recently called by a CRA Scammer. See the picture below from their Twitter Account.

We urge clients to continue to be aware of the scams and not fall victim them. If you suspect that someone calling you may be a CRA scam simply hang up the phone and don't give them any of your information.

Potential scammers and spammers may also try and contact you via text. If you get a spam text message copy the message and paste it into a new text it to 7726 (=SPAM), which will forward it to your mobile carrier so they can shut down the sender.
