Seniors be aware of phone scam happening in the area

The Nelson RCMP is warning people in the West Kootenay area about a phone scam demanding payment for money owed for taxes. The caller tells people that they are an employee of the Canada Revenue Agency and demands payment for unpaid taxes within 24 hours. The caller also says that if the person does not pay an arrest warrant will be issued. The Canada Revenue Agency assures that they do not conduct business this way. Anyone receiving a threatening call such as this should contact the RCMP or Canada Revenue Agency. Click here to see a Nelson Star article with more information on this scam.
