Leduc RCMP Warn Residents of Canada Revenue Agency Email Scam

For the third time this week, Leduc RCMP have received reports from local residents regarding suspicious communications that have been received via email. The emails appear to be from Canada Revenue Agency and tells the recipient that after reviewing your previous years fiscal activity, you are eligible to receive an additional tax return. The email encourages you to go to a link if you want your money placed into your account in the next 2-3 days.

Once you go to the link, you are asked to provide personal information.

Leduc RCMP are advising the public that these emails are NOT legitimate. THEY ARE FRAUDULENT!

Once you provide personal information on fraudulent sites, your identity can become compromised and there is no way of controlling what happens to your information.

The Leduc RCMP want to reminds the public the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) does not do the following:

The CRA will not request personal information of any kind from a taxpayer by email.

The CRA will not divulge taxpayer information to another person unless formal authorization is provided

by the taxpayer.

The CRA will not leave any personal information on an answering machine.

When in doubt, ask yourself the following:

Am I expecting additional money from the CRA?

Does this sound too good to be true?

Is the requester asking for information I would not include with my tax return?

Is the requester asking for information I know the CRA already has on file for me?

How did the requester get my email address?

Am I confident I know who is asking for the information?
