Tax Man Scam Heats Up

Investigators are warning the public that attempts to defraud citizens by phone continue at an alarming rate.

In some cases, citizens have reported being called by someone claiming to be from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The person calling tells the potential victim that they owe a certain amount of money in back taxes and if payment is not made, they will be arrested or that a warrant to arrest them already exists. The callers have demanded payment in the form of pre-paid credit cards, electronic money transfers, or most recently, via money orders. Seven such incidents were reported to West Division today.

No reputable company or organization will advise you to make payments in these ways. If you receive such a call, hang up and report the call to police. 

Unfortunately, money scammed from the public is difficult to recover. Prevention and caution are your best defence. By learning how to recognize a scam and report it, you can protect yourself and prevent others from becoming a victim of fraud. These warnings should be discussed with seniors who do not have access to this information. 

For more information about the CRA, visit their website at: CRA

For more information on types of frauds and how to protect yourself, visit the DRPS Fraud Safety page on our website : DRPS Fraud Safety

Anyone wishing to report a fraud in Durham Region is asked to contact Durham Regional Police at 1-888-579-1520.

Anonymous tips can be made to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or online at www.durhamregionalcrimestoppers.ca and tipsters may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
