Scammer calls continue in Sarnia

Published on

Sarnians are continuing to get phone calls from scammers pretending to be from the Canada Revenue Agency, city police say.

Often the victim gets a call from someone claiming that taxes are owed and asks for immediate payment by credit card.

Sometimes the caller convinces the victim to provide personal information or to buy a prepaid credit card and call back with the information.

The phony callers often threaten victims with court charges, jail or deportation.

If you get such a call, hang up and report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
