Continuing Phone Scams/Frauds

The Belleville Police Service is reminding the public about the prevalence of phone scams and frauds with people posing as representatives of the Canada Revenue Agency.   These fraudsters are advising that they are agents or officers employed by the Canada Revenue Agency and threaten arrest or legal action if individuals do not provide money or other personal information. Although the call may appear to be local, has a (613) area code, it is not originating from this area.

The Canada Revenue Agency and other government agencies will not contact individuals in this manner and attempt to obtain personal information.

Please do not engage in conversation with these individuals and/or provide personal information.  In fact, end the call immediately. 

If anyone has provided personal and/or credit information to these individuals, please contact the Belleville Police Service to report the incident at (613)966-0882 x. 2211.
