There is a telephone scam happening across Canada, but has been going on for several weeks in Thunder Bay. The caller states that they are with the Canada Revenue Agency and that the agency is filing a law suit for unpaid back taxes. People are being threatened that the police will be showing up to arrest them and put them in jail. This scam has impacted people here in the city, as the fraudulent callers are getting them to send them money to hold on on the law suit or imprisonment.
The entire telephone scam is a fraud.
