CRA Scam Prompts Warning from Detectives

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

Victoria BC-  With only a few weeks until tax time, Financial Crime Detectives have seen an increase in reports of the “Canada Revenue Agency” scam.

 

So far in 2018 alone, losses reported to VicPD as a result of the scam have totaled $25,000.  Investigators are also seeing more spoofing of phones numbers where, in one investigation, the victim divulged his accountant’s information then moments later got a call from his “accountant” which really was one of the fraudsters.
