The latest fraud for the Canadian taxpaying public to be aware of is phony emails that say they are from the Canada Revenue Agency and indicating that there is an Interac tax refund available. They invite the victim to click on a bank icon to log into their bank account to deposit the refund. Of course the bank login details are then stolen and used to steal funds from the bank account. CRA never communicates with taxpayers by email. CRA never pays tax refunds through Interac. They only issue cheques or make direct deposits to known taxpayer bank accounts.
