Beware CRA iTunes Scam

A Peterborough woman who received a call from a person claiming to be a Canada Revenue Agent was then told she needed to purchase $400 worth of iTunes cards which she did at a local drug store. 

She also provided the activation numbers and sent them a picture of her health card.  

The Peterborough Police Service reminds residents that the CRA does not accept gift cards as payment and that personal information should never be given out over the phone unless you can verify the caller’s identification.


If you receive a scam call, or think you may have, contact the Canada Revenue Agency and the police.
