Scams are getting very sophisticated and Barrie Police are warning about a few of them.
This is the time of year for scams aimed at taxpayers, utility users and consumers of all kinds.
During the past year, police across Ontario have seen very well organized financial criminal activities that pray on people who may not understand financial matters.
Bottom line: if you feel uneasy–call for help.
Police are reminding the public that individuals and businesses can call the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to confirm the authenticity of a CRA telephone number or report incidents of suspected fraud to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.
