The guy with thick Asian accent called my relative today and asked to pay back the money Canada Revenue Agency owes from him. He was told that if he did not pay, he will be fined, imprisoned for 10 years and then deported back to his home country.
Ignore them. This is a total scam. Originating in India. Contact the authorities. Go to local police and report it. There is no arrest, no prison and no one is being deported over tax issues. Tax problems are civil in nature.

Today i got call from the same number. They he told me that i didnt pay tax to Canada Govt and he told me that i have a criminal record. He was asking my credit card number. I know they are from INDIA. Fraud is a habit of indians. BE AWARE OF INDIANS.
Received a call from this number. The guy left a message on my answering machine. I could not understand it because he had such a heavy accent and spoke like he had marbles in his mouth. He said that someone had reported me to the CRA, and I had a claim against me. I phoned back, he said his superior was not available and I would be called back in 5 minutes. 35 minutes later he calls me back and once again repeats the case against me(foreign accent and with marbles in his mouth). Gets very frustrated with me when I ask him to repeat. He asks me to settle this by phone or he would have to take me to court. I then asked him to repeat the claim again very clearly and he got mad and hung up. Beware! This is not funny!
Ignore the call, it is a scam.
I received a somewhat threatening call from "Logan Stone" an investigative officer with Fed Government for CRA. I refused to give him info & when I questioned his credentials, he got angry stating there is a Federal court case against me. I questioned whythere was a lack of correspondence if that wa the case, he got angry & said authorities would be knocking on my door to take me into custody. I said "Good luck with that. I'm not at home!". I then called CRA & was told that it was a scam & cra would never speak to the public in that manner. People, always question these calls! It is not against the law to ask for proof etc. interestingly, I phoned the number back & now they won't answer. Lol
Is this a scam??
We just got a call too. What should we do??
l got a call from the same number today. Is this a scam?
Just got the call today from this thick accented douche from "Federal crime investigation" my gullible parents got scared, just wow. This really is pathetic haha, the message told us that our dog had bit someone and we had to give them the details. Just f****ng pathetic really.
This is happening in the London, Ontario area, as well. The caller has a thick Asian [East Indian] accent. He claims to be an"investigative officer" and that a criminal complaint has been made, and that if you do not comply with his demands you'll be arrested ["taken into custody'] and have your passport seized.
This is a criminal extortion scam operating out of India. They are making the calls utilizing VOIP and the names of legitimate firms to make it appear the calls are originating from within the US. There is NO "company" or "debt" and you will NOT be arrested. They are harvesting and/or buying consumers' personal identifying information and you need to do whatever you can to protect yourself. This includes: Notifying the FTC: https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/, placing fraud alerts with all three credit bureaus, notifying your bank and employer and letting these criminals know you are aware they are attempting to extort money for a non-existent debt and have alerted the authorities.
I got several calls too from this # 647 800 2965 and he insisted I gave him my personal info and email address or I would end up paying more with CCRA - he has a very high accent and would not take NO for an answer.
This was on April 01 & April 02
File reports with the FBI, your state attorney general and Department Of Justice,CFB,FTC & FCC..

A voice with heavy foreign accent (Philippines?) identifies himself as Captain Marc White from Federal Crime Investigation and attempts to obtain personal information.
