Gananoque Police would like to remind the public to be cautious of ongoing phone scams. Scammers will often pose as agents of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), computer companies, banking institutions and even police agencies in an effort to obtain your personal information. The CRA will never attempt to collect money via phone. Further, if anyone is demanding money over the phone, “cause the pause”. Ask questions. Call your local police service to inquire. Do not call numbers provided by possible scammers, look them up yourself. To learn more about these types of frauds you can visit the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at:
