CRA Emailing You? That might a scam

The CRA has taken the time to warn people that any emails that appear to be from them, and especially requesting personal information, may in fact be fraudulent. If you do receive such an email be very cautious. As with any other emails suggesting you may be owed some money, you should treat such messages with suspcion. To our knowledge, it’s the explicit policy for agents of the CRA not to give out their email addresses to individuals. If you receive such an email, feel free to contact us or look below at some of the resources for more information on what to do with it.
