As we close in on the Tax filing deadline, I’m reminded that emails regularily circulate from those purporting to be from Canada Reveune and are looking for confirmation of personal data. Canada Revenue, does not under any circumstance send emails to taxpayers. You should immediately delete these emails.
“Phishing is a way of attempting to acquire information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Communications purporting to be from popular social web sites, auction sites, online payment processors or IT administrators are commonly used to lure the unsuspecting public.”
