The Canada Revenue Agency is warning taxpayers to beware of a recent scam circulating around the country.
A letter fraudulently stating it’s from the CRA claims there is insufficient information for the individual’s tax return. It also says that in order to receive any claims they will have to update their records.
The letter attaches a form specifically requesting the individual’s personal information in writing including information on bank accounts and passports.
If you have received a letter similar to this you can visit www.phonebusters.com, send an email to email@example.com, or call 1-888-495-8501.
