North Bay Police are warning about a fraudster who claims to be from the Canadian Revenue Agency.
They have received several reports from residents who have been targeted from the same scam. The person calling residents asks for personal information, or that outstanding taxes are settled by pre-paid debit or credit cards.
There is also notification by phone or email from the CRA claiming there is a refund pending in exchange for personal info. To protect yourself visit the Canadian Revenue Agency website to help identify a scammer.
