Another 16 Call Centres Linked to CRA Scam Busted in India
Posted on December 23, 2018
The RCMP says an additional 16 call centres linked to the Canada Revenue Agency phone scam have been dismantled by Indian authorities.
The RCMP say there are over 4,000 victims they're aware of who have been bilked out of approximately $15.2 million since police started their investigation.
Police said the call centres involved are believed to be among those behind the threatening phone messages commonly received by Canadians. The callers pose as CRA agents and demand payment of fines or tax debts, usually in Bitcoin, on a threat of prosecution.
