RCMP are continuing to warn about scammers who claim to be from the Canada Revenue Agency, and make repeated calls to victims, subjecting them to “extremely threatening and frightening” demands that taxes owed be paid.
In the Nanaimo area alone more than 30 reports of these harassing phone calls have been received. “The CRA does not conduct business in this fashion,” the release states.
People receiving calls from any agency asking for money over the phone should be wary. If in doubt hang up the phone,” police advise.
