The scammers are asking for money and personal information.
Have you gotten an email or call from what seems to be the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) asking you for money, your social insurance number (SIN) or other personal information? If so, someone tried to scam you.
The CBSA is warning everyone across the country about ongoing email, text, phone and online scams that have people posing as officials from the agency. They urge people to look out for fake versions of the ArriveCAN app or the Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).
In some instances, scammers are using phone numbers, logos, email addresses and employee names that falsely appear to be from the CBSA to mislead people.
The CBSA is reminding Canadians that it never requests SINs, credit card numbers or money by phone or email.
