Fraud alert

The Guelph Police Service Fraud Unit wishes to notify the public about an ongoing scam involving fraudulent communications from the Canada Revenue Agency. Residents have reported receiving phone calls, letters or emails appearing to be from the CRA indicating either they are owed a refund or that they owe back taxes which are due immediately.

These communications go on to instruct the receiver to provide personal information in order to receive the benefit or pay the outstanding bill. As per the Canada Revenue Agency Website, the CRA will not request personal information of any kind of a taxpayer by email. Here are some tips to remember when you are in receipt of any communication (phone, mail or email) appearing to be from the CRA:  Do not take immediate action. Verify that what you are being told is the truth.  Ask yourself why the CRA would be asking for personal information over the phone or email that they likely already have on file for you as a taxpayer.  Contact the CRA to confirm that you in fact owe back taxes, or are entitled to a refund, before providing any personal or banking information. For more information about Fraud Scams involving the CRA visit the Canada Revenue website at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/menu-eng.html.
