If ‘CRA’ Calls and Yells at You, Hang Up

Lots of folks have been getting the CRA SCAM phone call. I reported it to the Burnaby RCMP crime prevention folks, and here’s their response:

Thank for the information.  The Canada Revenue Agency Tax Scam is quite prevalent during this time of year.  You did the right thing and it is awesome that you have informed others about it.  Please share this link to a useful video.

You can also report this information to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) as they collect data for investigations.
