While phone scams are a regular occurrence throughout the year, a popular Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) fraudulent call can have Townshippers second-guessing their numbers in the middle of tax season. The Record was contacted recently by a number of locals who have received threatening phone calls from people claiming to be CRA representatives, threatening incarceration for unpaid taxes. Here are a few things to consider in the event of a suspicious phone call or email: The CRA does not make threatening phone calls. If there is a discrepancy in taxes filed, it will appear in a tax payer’s notice of assessment. ITunes and Steam cards are not valid forms of payment. Anyone asked to go purchase them, or anyone threatened with jail or the seizure of assets if they don't comply immediately with a demand, should be suspicious.
