Canada Revenue Agency does not send e-mail transfers to disburse payments as shown here by one received this week by a Williams Lake Tribune reporter.

Interac e-transfers from CRA a scam

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 phishing@interac.ca so a fraud team can further investigate.
