FRAUDSTERS POSING AS POLICE, DEMAND PAYMENT OF TAX ARREARS


September 29th. 2015

It has come to our attention that in addition to the ongoing fraudulent phone calls from people claiming to represent the Canada Revenue Agency, demanding payment of fictitious tax debts, an individual recently reported a visit at his home by two persons dressed in police uniforms with similar demands.

 

These brazen fraudsters demanded payment of taxes claimed to be owing by the homeowner, and when informed the homeowner did not have cash to pay, they provided bank account information for the funds to be transferred electronically.

 

While the CRA is becoming more aggressive in collecting tax debts, they always communicate by mail, prior to making phone calls.  They do not send police to collect cash at your door.

 

We wish to remind our clients not to provide personal information to anyone claiming to represent the CRA.  If you receive a suspicious call or visit, call the police to report it.  If you receive correspondence from CRA, you can forward it to us for assistance.
