Lots of people on Cortes have been receiving phone calls lately from "officer Peter Samson" or "officer ......." from the Canadian Revenue Agency stating their tax was not filed properly & a warrant had been issued for their arrest. They want to know if you have a lawyer.
Others have been receiving calls about their bank, nephews that are broke and stuck in the UK calling for money, people calling about computer virus and want to *fix* your computer and you can pay them over the phone with your credit card etc.etc. All scams. Never give out any important info to people that call/email you out nowhere.
Lots of different phone numbers are used, the latest one being 289-203-0088. Please call the Quadra RCMP to file a complaint. Their non emergency phone # is 1-250-285-3631
Do not engage. There is nothing to prove to these scammers. Do not provide anything to them and just hang up the phone. If it is real, you will receive a notice in the mail.
