Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) scams continue to be reported. You know if you are in a jackpot with CRA. If you receive a call indicating you are going to be arrested if you donít send money somewhere, donít do it and call me (the Chief) at the office. Canada Revenue Agency does not operate like that.
