It's a SCAM number. And CRA certainly doesn't bother responding to bulletin boards like this. These clowns are trying to rip you off. Scam scam scam This is a big time scam they call and have a return phone number that sounds like the CRA but it is not!! Do not call back and do not give them info. Received message from 800-931-1026 telling me to call back 866-290-7824. Said it was CRA calling. I called the number and it is based in the USA. Immediately prompted to give SIN. I hung up. A scam. This is not how CRA works. Wrong. This is NOT a scam. You can check the legitimacy of any government phone number by calling 1-800-O-CANADA, (in the blue pages section of your phone book). There are also other methods to confirm the legitimacy of any government office. Voicemessage said to call this number back, and have SIN ready. I called and it says "Canada Revenue Agency Collections Service" and select 1 for English, 2 for French. Then it asks for you to put in your SIN. I didn't like it so I called the regular CRA number from their website. They confirmed it was a legitimate number, and there was a record on my file of them having called me.I then called it back and put in my SIN, spoke with an agent. They were calling to remind me about my installment payments as I hadn't made any yet.This is legitimate. 1-866-290-7824 is NOT A SCAM. call to get SIN to open file on income tax return left a message saying it was the CRA, please phone and have my SIN number ready.... beware
