TORONTO — Canadians who have grown tired of unsolicited emails and phone calls from scammers claiming they owe money to federal agencies will have their patience tested this tax season.
The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) is expecting to see a surge in these scams between March and April, when cybercriminals tend to prey on consumers who are more likely to fall for scams that ask for their personal information during tax season.
According to numbers provided to CTVNews.ca, 470 Canadians lost more than $1.4 million to these scams last year alone.
