Phone scammers threaten arrest if payment isn’t sent right away

The RCMP is warning about a phone scam.

If you get a call from someone telling you that a warrant has been issued for your arrest unless you send payment right away, hang up. 

This is a scam. 

The police do not accept payment to get rid of an arrest warrant. 

The RCMP says that scammers often use threatening language to persuade people to pay a fictitious debt and they claim to be calling or emailing from the Canada Revenue Agency, Service Canada, the RCMP, or any number of other agencies/companies. 

You’re reminded to never provide any personal information over the phone.

You do not need to make a report to police if you simply receive a scam phone call; however, if you have been victimized by a scammer, please call and report what happened.
