The Estevan Police Service (EPS) has received several complaints from members of the public indicating that they have received text messages appearing to be sent from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). These texts contain a link which references a “Notice of Assessment” for the recipient.
EPS would like to advise the public that the CRA does not correspond in this manner and that any similar text message communications received are an attempt to illegally obtain funds or personal information from the recipient.
EPS urges the public to not click on the link contained within the text messages or to provide any money or personal information as a result of doing so.
Anyone wishing to report this or any other scam (whether completed or not) may contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre by telephone at 1-888-495-8501 or online at their website: www.antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca
