ALERT: They’re at it again folks. Watch out! The SCAMMERS/FRAUDSTERS are coming out of the woodwork again. Don’t get taken !
The fraudsters are at it again. According to a site visitor, an email message notified them that they owed Canada Revenue money and that the tax arrears could be paid via credit card. Then, there was a demand for credit card information.
BE FOREWARNED !!!
DON’T GET TAKEN IN BY THE SCAM.
- DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION to anyone unless you know it to be a legitimate business transaction. The CRA never conducts business in that way.
- Confirm your tax records that your taxes have been paid in full.
- Retain the fraudulent email for your own records.
- Mark the email as SPAM or better still filter out all future such mail. [ If you need help with filtering gmail, contact Richard at firstname.lastname@example.org ]
Be safe, be wary !
