If you have been getting phone calls from a scammer who is posing as a representative from the “Canada Revenue Agency,” Do not and I mean DO NOT PICK UP THE PHONE!
These scammers have been calling victims and they have been advising them that they will be arrested if they do not pay their taxes. The victims who have been receiving this call are instructed to purchase and provide either ITunes Gift Cards or Bit Coins to the scammer over the phone.
If there was a legitimate, real person working with the “Canada Revenue Agency”, they would never ask you to transfer funds over the phone and they would never ask for payment in gift cards or bit coins.
If you receive a call like this, tell the caller that you know it is a “scam” and then end the call by hanging up the phone.
DO NOT RELEASE any of your PERSONAL INFORMATION to the caller whatsoever!
It is for everyone’s safety and security.
