Police out with warning about email scam targeting students
In the last two days, eight people have reported receiving the fraudulent email, claiming to be from the Canada Revenue Agency



Waterloo Regional Police are asking post-secondary students in the area to be alert due to fraudulent emails circulating, claiming to be from the Canada Revenue Agency.

In the last two days, police say eight people have reported receiving the email.

It ended up in their @uwaterloo.ca account - letting them know they're eligible for a tax refund. The student would then fill out personal information to submit a claim.

Police have linked 15 other reports of CRA email scams to students at the University of Waterloo.

Below is an example of the email the students have received:

Dear Student,

Canada Revenue Agency has sent you an INTERAC e-Transfer (previously INTERAC Email Money Transfer).

Amount: $550.44 (CAD)

Sender's Message: Tax refund of $550.44 CAD from overpaid tax from year ending 2019

Expiry Date: 15 January, 2020

Action Required: To deposit your money, Start Claim

Police say the Canada Revenue Agency does not provide tax refunds through e-transfer.

Anyone who receives this email is asked to call police, as well as the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre to report the scam.
