Scam alert

Police are reminding you to be cautious of email and telephone scams where individuals claim to be working for the Canada Revenue Agency.

They’ve been getting calls recently about this including some scams where the caller claims to be affiliated with the police.  One person got a call from a man claiming to be with the tax agency and that the man owed money because of an error on his return.  If he didn’t pay he would be arrested.  One giveaway it was a scam was that the caller demanded paytment in STEAM cards which are used by online gamers to buy games and consoles.
