Moosomin RCMP has had several reports of emails and text messages going to people claiming to be from Canada Revenue Agency.
There is a link included for people to click on and complete a form providing sensitive personal information such as date of birth, social insurance number, mother's maiden name etc..DO NOT DO THIS.
The message also indicates your refund may be expeditited and/or increased if you fill out the form online. Again, DO NOT DO THIS.
Please be aware this is a scam and an attempt to solicit information in order to access credit or use in further scams in the future.
If you receive this text, do not provide any information.
