Beware of CRA scams

As we start rolling into tax season, new Canada Revenue Agency scams are becoming more frequent.

Several Castanet readers say they've received calls from people claiming to be from the tax agency.

While the scams have some different twists, the underlying message is the same.

In most cases, people are told a criminal investigation has been launched, or criminal charges have been filed against them, and they must call a specific number immediately.

The number is based out of Ontario, however, it's unclear if the caller is also in Ontario.

Those who call back are asked for personal information, and a demand is made for some form of payment.

On its website, CRA says: "These are scams and taxpayers should never respond to these fraudulent communications or click on any of the links provided."
