Beware of a new phone scam that has hit Winnipeg. The scammer is impersonating the Canadian Revenue Agency and the Winnipeg Police.
First the scammer will call its victim saying they owe the CRA money and then instructs the victim to call the Winnipeg Police non-emergency line. While the victim places the call, the scammer is actually still on the line and then claims to be the police and proceeds to instruct the victim to transfer money.
