A new tax scam may be hitting the residents of Bracebridge.
Our newsroom received reports of a scammer claiming to be from the CRA accusing the person they are calling of tax fraud.
The caller then demands that the accused pay money upfront to avoid a lawsuit.
Constable Skeeter Kruger with the Bracebridge OPP says in cases like these the targeted victim should be vigilant.
If you believe you are a victim of a money scam contact OPP or the RCMP Anti-Fraud line.
