Protect yourself against identity theft

  • Did you know that the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) does not ask for personal information of any kind by email? Even though emails asking for such information can look official, they do not come from the CRA. Often these emails are phishing scams that contain site redirection coding or downloadable forms designed to steal your personal or financial information.
