Fraud Prevention Month puts focus on growing number of Tax time scammers

March is Fraud Awareness month, and as the volume of unknown callers arrive on your phone its a timely reminder of the work of scammers to take advantage of the Tax filing season to try and separate us from our money.

Northern Savings, the Prince Rupert based financial institution has relayed some helpful information for residents of the region towards those long distance scam artists noting how Revenue Canada would never ask for any payment by way of text messaging.

There is more information available on the growing problem of fraud attempts through the Canadian Anti-Fraud centre, explore some of their advice and warnings here.

They also alert us to the latest ways that the fraudsters work through their social media stream.

More notes on Community themes is available here.
