Revenue Canada scams continue to affect Calgarians
The Calgary Police Service Economic Crimes Unit is alerting the public once again to the growing trend of Canada Revenue Agency scams.
Since February of this year, the Calgary Police Service has been notified of nearly 120 attempts to solicit funds. Approximately 20 victims have sent money, ranging from several hundred to several thousand dollars. In 2014, 35 victims lost approximately $60,000.
These types of scams are almost exclusively done via telephone calls to the victim’s home phone, however they have also occurred via email. During phone solicitations, the offenders demand to stay on the line with the victim, claiming they work for the Canada Revenue Agency.
The culprits often make threats that unpaid fees, or taxes, will result in the victim going to jail or being deported if the debt is not paid. The victim is then directed to pay the purported debt through e-transfer, money wire transfer or the purchase of pre-paid gift cards, which they are directed to mail to a specific address.
Police encourage victims of these crimes to call the Calgary Police non-emergency line at 403-266-1234. Anyone who may have other information about these scams is asked to contact the non-emergency number, or Crime Stoppers anonymously using any of the following methods: TALK: 1-800-222-8477, TYPE: www.calgarycrimestoppers.org, TEXT: tttTIPS to 274637.
