Here is how to confirm if the CRA called you…and not a scammer:
- Tell the caller you would like to first verify their identity
- Ask for, and make a note of their:
- phone number
- office location
- Check that the call you received was legitimate by contacting the CRA at the number that you look up yourself on the CRA website before you provide any information to the caller.
- Call the CRA employee back to discuss the reason for the call.
