They phoned our # *** Took a couple minutes for them to answer! But I have been phoned before about this and knew there was a problem! Phoned the number 1-613-366-5375 and the first time they didn't answer. Second time someone answered. I asked what the problem was and they hung up after a small amount of swearing on both sides

An officer Ron Adams - very thick accent - called me from 613-604-9938 and threatened me with an arrest warrant #00S100S3636 for tax fraud. He said I owed $2946. And he asked for my SIN. When I aksed him to repeat my SIN back to me, he became belligerent.

I have been the unfortunate recipient of many email scams but this is the latest: An email with the Subject Line: ‘You receive INTERAC e-Transfer’. This purports to be from Canada Revenue Agency with a total of $101.52 CAD refund. The body of the email asks that I deposit the money by confirming my mobile phone number and then clicking an link. Very poor grammar and language and phony website address. Just one more to be aware of.

I received a recorded message urging me to call back immediately regarding a problem with revenue services.

If I did not call back immediately, there was nothing they could do to help me.

It was mentioned that I may need to contact my lawyer.

The number to call back was 416-477-6879

I have just received a robo-call from someone claiming to be from the "CRA", saying I owe taxes. This isthe second phone call in two weeks, from two different people.

I received a recorded phone call strongly threatening me to call back. The message said they were from CRA. Threatening that there was a warrant issued for my arrest today.

When I call back, I am told the same thing. I was going to be arrested for tax fraud.

I asked how I knew he was actually from CRA. He was indignant about that.

I asked him to give me my SIN.

The line went dead.

I received a phone message threatening legal proceedings within 24 hours if I didn't call back to 844-385-9043. The caller said my bank accounts would be frozen and that I will be solely responsible for all legal consequences. I believe this is the CRA scam.

Starting 4 or 5 months ago we received a phone call at our home asking to speak to the former owner of the home, by name. This person would be in his late 90's if still alive. They spoke with a foreign accent (African?) and said they were calling from the CRA. I told them that person was deceased. They asked many personal questions about the situation. When I said the questions were inappropriate the person asked me to hold for his supervisor. The same person came on the line and wanted my name and address. I declined and the caller became agitated and said, "What do you mean? This is the CRA and you could go to jail." I then hung up the phone.

We received 3 more calls with voice messages and they stopped.

In January and young female called saying they were from the CRA. She had no accent. She said it was concerning an unpaid ambulance bill & that they had sent multiple letters to the home and received no payment. We have not used the ambulance service. As an aside, the ambulance services in BC are provincial not federal. We have had 4 of those calls.

On February 4, 2016 we received an email from the 'CRA' stating they had an email transfer of funds for us to deposit into our account. We have never given them our email address or names. It was from a UK site. We did not deposit any money and have left it on our email display for evidence.

We have changed our email and bank passwords and have antivirus software and are very concerned about this situation. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

I received a scam CRA email stating that I am eligible to receive a tax refund, and to please submit my tax refund and allow 6-7 days for processing.  Scammers direct me to the official CRA site: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/tpcs/ncm-tx/rvws/menu-eng.html supposedly to assure me I was dealing with the official CRA.  But scammers also directed me to another link (bogus) to obtain my refund.  No doubt, this link would have required me to submit my personal bank account information.
