Police wish to warn the general public of a scam that is sweeping the Comox Valley. Multiple calls have been received by police that have people worried about being arrested. They report that they have received a call from someone purporting themselves to be from the Canada Revenue Agency and wanted money or a warrant would be issued for their arrest. This is not the way that the CRA would conduct business so we are urging everyone to be aware of possible scams such as this, to protect yourselves and your finances.
