Fraud alert

Released: March 20, 2024 at 7:50 a.m.

The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre has been receiving reports of text messages claiming to be from Canada Revenue Agency. The message includes the victim’s full name and SIN and asks that a payment be sent to a phone number. Remember that the Canada Revenue Agency will never ask for a payment via text message. If you have been part of a breach or a victim of identity theft, fraudsters will use the information as a tool to steal your money.

You can go to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website to find out more about recent scams and frauds.
