Chamber Offers Business Ideas to Combat CRA Scammers

August 15, 2016

The Cornwall Chamber recently issued a media article about scam artists contacting consumers and claiming they owed money to the Canada Revenue Agency. In the article, the Chamber offered a number of tips should anyone be contacted.

Here is another article, this one geared towards Cornwall’s business community that may have concerns about scams aimed at their firm. The Chamber has acquired information from the Canada Revenue Service that offers guidance to the region’s business community. The CRA has developed a number of resources that business owners and managers can tap into.

  • For general information on scams, go to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre website at antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca.
