Special Interest Release:

100 Mile House RCMP has received reports again from the public that the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is calling people to inform individuals there are warrants of arrest for unpaid taxes. The caller then asks for personal information to confirm the individuals identity. These requests included Social Insurance number, date of birth and so on. The caller also threatens that the RCMP will attend execute an imaginary warrant if information or payment is not provided. Often the caller then asks for payment of unpaid taxes" in i-Tunes, Google Play, prepaid Visa cards and so on. Just to clarify. The Government of Canada/CRA will not take or request payment of taxes in anything other than Canadian currency through a secure payment process and never over the phone. Secondly the CRA does not have the ability to process or apply for arrest warrants for unpaid taxes. The RCMP will not be attending your residence for CRA warrants as they do not exist. Please, Please, Please do not provide personal information over the phone and do not pay your taxes over the phone at all. Once the money is transferred it is nearly impossible to investigate as the countries the money is sent do not see this as a offence and will not work with local law enforcement.

Anyone with information on these of other events occurring in the 100 Mile House RCMP area can contact the office at 250-395-2456 to speak with an officer or they can contact Crime Stoppers BC at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) if they wish to remain anonymous.
