Canadians challenged to #CRUSHtheCRAscam
The RCMP issued a media release today, asking Canadians to crush the CRA scam.
This is an ongoing scam whereby fraudsters, who claim to be from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), make “threats of arrest, deportation, assault, sexual assault, kidnapping, bombings, and murder” if the victim does not meet their demands for funds. “The fraudsters now appear to be reaching out to previous victims with a promise of a ‘refund’ on their original losses,” the release states. “They then follow-up with the victim via email and/or a phone call explaining that if the victim agrees to make an ‘administrative payment’ of 5% of their original loss, they will get their money back.”
