Chris20 Apr 2017I agree with the above caller.
Jennifer B20 Apr 2017
Received threatening message. Attempted to csll back but the name of the "officer" who called me could not be found.. Definitely seems like spam.
Zach20 Apr 2017Threatening voicemail. Claims to be an "officer" and will pursue legal action if I don't call back. Spam/Fraud/Extortion
Jen20 Apr 2017
Received message - says from Canada revenue agency and must call back because of a time sensitive issue. Says he's an officer of CRA. Seems like a scam call.
Dave20 Apr 2017
Press any "1" digit and no names are found. Automated attendant, appears to be an automated voice call out.
They would always reference a case or similar. Report this to the police.
Jenn20 Apr 2017
Got a threatening voicemail from a heavy accented named officer "Paul tanner" said urgent matter and time sensitive issue and that if I ignore/don't call him back i'"" be in trouble. Then wished me luck. The message sounded pre-recorded and fake. When calling back it just goes into an automated voice menu asking to enter an extension.
Totally seems like a scam.
Caller: Paul tanner

i got one missed call showing Vietnam 8446131342 , left me msg saying he is from CRA, his name Paul Tunner, and if i don't return his call he is going to blablabla. very heavy accent. it's a total scammer! i wonder if any hacker could hack this guys so they can stop scamming people!
m21 Apr 2017Got the same call from 844 613 1342, same threatening message. Definitely a scam.
B21 Apr 2017

A21 Apr 2017
Scam All the way
Received a call from 1-844-613-1342, realizing a voice message was talking to me! Asking me to call back. It claimed that it was from CRA for a time-sensitive matter. When I returned the call someone answered and claimed to be a CRA officer. Once I told him that this is very unusual for CRA to play a voice massage and ask to call back, he hung up. When I called the number again and blocked my caller ID, I was directed to an automated attendant asking to dial the extension or browse by name. There was of course no name listed!
X21 Apr 2017Same as all the above.
Definitely a pre-recorded message.
Steve in Mississauga, Ontario21 Apr 2017
Got the call today on my iPhone. Same thing - thick Asian accent, poor grammar, laughable "scare" tactics - so poorly orchestrated - I would rate this particular phish as a low-grade attempt by an amateur. But this is how amateurs learn and become professional scammers. I reported this incident to the Government of Canada's Anti-Fraud Hotline. In case some fellow Canadians are unaware of this service, here is the toll-free number: 1 (888) 495-8501. There can be longish wait times, but in 2017 this seems to be the rule rather than the exception for customer service centres, be they business or governmental.
Caller: seemingly Asian heritage, poor English speaker

I've received two calls from this number, didn't answer they left messages.
The first one was unable to make out half the message just that I needed to call back within 48hrs or beware! Today's message was from Paul Paul Tunner and he indicated the same thing.
Total Scam! Gotta block this number.
George - Mississauga21 Apr 2017
"Tax crime investigation unit of the CRA" - threatening - total scam.
D21 Apr 2017
Received a voicemail from this number this morning. Called the RCMP and told them about it. They told me this is a known scam.
H21 Apr 2017
I received this call this morning but let it go to voicemail. I only got the end of their recorded message but it said it was the CRA (although it showed the call was form th US).
Sounded like a scam.
Helen21 Apr 2017
Received a voicemail from this number this afternoon. I checked the number on the Internet and learned this is a scam. Thanks to all who posted!
Jen21 Apr 2017
I have received two calls now from this number wishing me luck if either myself or my attorney didn't call back. Thank you to all those that posted.
Dawn24 Apr 2017
We received a voicemail also. Same threat. Agree with the post above to report.
Caller: States they are CRA but NOT
K24 Apr 2017Scam based in India. Don't answer, call back, or give out any personal info.
Report the incident to the anti-fraud center.
Leanna24 Apr 2017
Left a voicemail, says his name is Officer Paul Connor (or something, he has an accent).
GM25 Apr 2017Same message as others - claims to be Officer Paul Tanner with threat that I or my attorney need to call back and if not it will fall on me and wishes me luck. Did not call back since this is definitely a scam.

I get 3-4 calls daily on my work phone. I don't answer. Must be someone who has nothing better to do than be a nuisance.
