10:30 am we continue to receive complaints about the Canada Revenue Agency scam. If you get a call or a letter or an email indicating you owe money or there will be warrants for your arrest it is probably a scam. Call CRA with a number found in the phone book not one supplied by them and ask. Check with your accountant or financial advisor, it is probably a scam.
