Sicamous RCMP warn there have been an increased number of telephone scam attempts reported as of late, where callers claimed to be from the Canada Revenue Agency asking for personal information, or a nephew has been arrested or is in distress, and money is requested (also known as the “grandparent scam”).

Anyone receiving such calls is advised to confirm details with family members (or the CRA), before providing money or information.
