We have all heard about the various scams that regularly try to bilk citizens of their money.
Whether it’s guy trying to sell you a water heater at your front door or a telemarketer over the phone it seems no one is safe from these predators.
So when I discovered a message on my voice mail demanding I, or my lawyer, immediately call the Canada Revenue Agency (and if I didn’t it would be held against me) I actually started to laugh.
Are they serious, I thought? I knew immediately it was a hoax and went on with my life.
But when they left a message the second time, I got ticked.
I played the full message on the radio and even placed a call live to the supposed ‘officer’ who called.
As soon as the person on the phone (who was the same voice as on the message) realized I was not at the same phone number he called, he promptly hung up.
Revealing, if you ask any questions of these people or cause suspicion, they will flee.
Not because they are scared you are onto them, but because there are so many others out there who will give them the info they want with no questions asked.
Just another reason to ban any kind of telemarketing, so we know if we get it, it’s fraudulent.
