Tax scam in high gear in Brockville

(Newswatch Group/File)

BROCKVILLE – As the tax deadline approaches, a scam posing as the Canada Revenue Agency is in high gear.

Brockville Police Service Staff Sgt. Todd Bertrend said it’s “still very active in our area” and the MO continues to be the same – threaten large fines and jail time if the unwitting victims don’t pay up.

The department first noticed an uptick in complaints in early January.

Police are encouraging you not to take any action when the fraud artists made demands.

The deadline to really file your taxes is April 30, 2016.
