It’s tax season, and unfortunately, that means it’s tax-scam season.

Doug Goldsmith of Crime Stoppers reports he received an e-mail recently advising he would be reassessed by Canada Revenue and was to receive $641.22 back.

Goldsmith said it is a scam and advises citizens to search “Canada Revenue Agency scams,” and this scam tops the list.

Governments, like banks, will not ask for personal information via e-mail. Although the message looks real, it’s not.
