Ongoing Frauds

 

Belleville, Ontario – On May 24th, 2017, police received numerous complaints from people who were contacted by the “CRA”.

In some instances people were encouraged to purchase Walmart cards or I Tunes cards to settle their debts. The CRA is a fictitious group with no affiliation to Revenue Canada.

 

Another caller was looking on-line at a house for rent. The caller “googled” the address and a different house appeared on the screen. This house had a for sale sign for a local realty company. The caller confirmed through the realtor that the first advertisement was fraudulent.
