When I received an e-mail Monday, May 15, notifying me I had received an e-mail Interac transfer from Canada Revenue Agency I was surprised.
We had recently completed our return and the timing seemed like a quick turnaround.
Luckily I checked into it on the internet and learned the CRA does not use the Interac e-Transfer service to collect or disburse payments.
If you receive an e-mail stating that the CRA is trying to send you money or verify personal information, do not respond, CRA warns, adding this is a known phishing scam, created by fraudsters.
Please forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org so a fraud team can further investigate.
