Both times I was told that I owed money and that my house was under surveillance and if I didn’t respond to the phone call within 2 hrs. I would be arrested. I have also recently had emails representing bank needing to verify my banking information even though they are banks I do not deal with.

The phone call was a recorded message claiming to be from Revenue Canada and that an arrest warrant would be issued if I didn’t call them back. I researched the phone number and it was from Nova Scotia and a company by the name of Iristel Inc. I checked BBB about the company and found several negative reviews. I added my own review and received a very generic response from Iristel Inc. putting the onus on ISP Telecom Inc. Following is the review and response: Original Review:

At 11:57am today I received a recorded voice message from the following number 1-204-963-3437 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This message was representing themselves as authorities from Canada Revenue and that an arrest warrant will be issued if I do not return their call. This is not the first time this has happened. The company needs to be held responsible for the fraudsters and scammers that are harassing innocent people. The frequency of these calls or calls with a hang up has become more often.

Business Comment:

Dear Mrs. ., Kindly be advised that I have verified this number in our systems and, although Iristel is the original provider, this number was ported out from our network in July 2013. The number shows as being in service with ISP Telecom Inc. Current SPID 4727, this is the only information I can provide you with. I am sorry to hear about this unpleasant experience, but there is nothing more that Iristel can help you with in this situation. Best regards,

Called four times starting at 9am-1pm on a Saturday…..claiming they are from revenue canada. Myself or my lawyer need to contact immediately. I phoned back and surprisingly someone answers. I told them to remove my number and they told me to f….off. Funny never had a revenue agent spoke to me in that manner…lol. I don’t have a block number feature. How do we make these underproductive scammers go away????

Automated phone call identifying as Revenue Canada. Have a tax evasion, tax fraud,.. court case against someone in household. (Did not say which of us.) Gave a phone number to call 1-613-916-6024. Number belongs to Distributel Communications Ltd, Ottawa, Ont., Canada. Called my tax rep. who told me it was a scam, not to call the number, & Revenue Canada is aware of problem. Just wanted to give a heads up, as Revenue Canada is closed for Remembrance Day long weekend. Thank-you April.

This person called from 647-495-9533 saying I was being charged with tax fraud and it was going to go to court where I would be arrested. I called this number back and he answered Revenue Canada but when I questioned him he hung up.

I had a call saying they were from the Canada Revenue Agency saying I was being audited for Tax Evasion, etc and that I owed $5,796.00!

She went in and on asking me personal questions until I said this is ***  and I want your name and number so I can see if you really are a government representative.

She then said Mamn you can’t speak to me like this and so on…so I hung up.

I do believe she might have been getting my voice recording of "Yes" to use against my personal information!!!

On my answering machine Aug 09 2017 I received a message saying there was a warrant for arrest due to Revenue Canada charges and to call the number to rectify # 226 210 1056. I did not call them back knowing it was a scam. The caller or recording had a male british accent. It may have been computer generated as the voice sounded so during the call back number part of messge.

I have mp3 recording of message if you want to hear it

Claimed to be working for Revenue Canada as a tax collection agency. They claimed I owed back taxes and if I didn’t pay they would tow our vehicles and sell them at auction. Very persistent and rude. Calls came in as early as 7:14 am. 7 days a week

You did not fill out a form so revenue Canada is assessed $4000 penalty. You must wire transfer money now or we will send RCMP to your house with arrest warrants. You can’t discuss this matter with anyone till you pay your penalty, if you don’t we going to arrest your husband as well .
