Protect yourself against fraud. Help Identify Communications NOT from the Canada Revenue Agency

Taxpayers may receive communications from someone who claims to be from the CRA. These con artists request the taxpayer’s personal information such as a social insurance number, credit card number, bank account number, or passport number. This resource from CRA provides examples of fraudulent (deceitful or dishonest) communications through phone, online, mail, e-mail, text message. It also provides guidelines to the taxpayers to help identify communications not from the CRA .
