The OPP is warning people of a new scam that claims the Canada Revenue Agency wants to give you money.

The provincial police tweeted out that this scam is circulating through the public. The scam has people receiving an email from the CRA  saying “Dear Taxpayer, Canada Revenue has sent you an Interac e-transfer…”

The OPP is urging anyone that gets this email to report it to the phone number attached to your tax return, and that the CRA would not refer to you as ‘taxpayer’ or e-transfer you money.

As always double check the contents of an email before clicking on any link.
