Emails or phone calls advising you have won something or advising you are in trouble with the Canada Revenue Agency or Immigration, are almost always fraudulent. As well, any emails or phone calls asking for your personal information or banking or credit card information are not legitimate. Do not respond to these emails or calls — report them to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
If you have been a victim of one of these scams or your personal information has been compromised, contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre to file a report and the Canadian credit bureaus for assistance.
