Canada CRA Phone Call Scam Fraud Recording 2018


Here are a list of  my recent recordings for this notorious CRA phone scam. For somehow, they targeted my business phone number and called many times. In order to reveal the tricks they played to me over the phone and warn to others, I managed to record some of calls.

First “CRA” scam call for TAX dispute, which happened on May 16 2018:

Second “CRA” scam call for a lost suitcase under my name, happened on May 24 2018. I missed the call and they left an voice message, apparently, it is solicit call targeting wide users. I tried to call back later, but the phone number was already invalid  :

Third one happened on Jul 12 2018, also starting with solicit call , a pre-recorded message played. I immediately called back and they answered my call.

 Totally they were  from two phone numbers: 1 (778) 404-1752 and 1 (778) 404-1750.

At the end of call, there was email communication this time from [email protected] It were used by scammers to collect your Google Play cards pictures.

Basically, the scammers told me I had a lawsuit because of owing CRA $5000+. Since my bank account only has $600+ , they asked me to buy $500 Google Play cards from Canadian Tire and take a picture to them to resolve this lawsuit.

I recorded this whole session and paid enough patience to go to last step. Again, if there is anyone trying to fool you to get you buy or pay something through phone call, you had better to think this is a scam.

Tax scams

The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) continues to receive reports of emails, text messages and telephone calls related to tax scams. Tax scams can involve the following:
  1. Fraudsters are calling consumers impersonating the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and claiming that a recent audit has identified discrepancies from past filed taxes. Repayment is required immediately. Fraudsters threaten consumers that failure to pay will result in additional fees, jail time and/or deportation. Fraudsters may request payment via money service business, pre-paid cards / gift cards (iTunes) or bitcoin.
  2. Consumers receive an email or text message indicating a refund is pending from the CRA. The email includes a link that directs consumers to a website that looks like the actual CRA. Consumers are asked to fill in their personal information such as Social Insurance Number (SIN), Date of Birth (DOB) and banking information before receiving the refund (email money transfer). Victims who input their personal information are subject to identity fraud. No refund is ever issued.
