Beware of "Canada Federal Court" Fraudulent Calls Being Made by Scammers

There have been reports of a scam involving the Federal Court and the Tax Court of Canada. Victims have reported receiving telephone calls from persons claiming to be representatives of the "Federal Tax Court" and are being told that they are under investigation and owe money. In some instances, scammers are using Courts Administration Service phone numbers to disguise their calls.

Please continue below.

There have also been reports of a scam in which an email is sent which is meant to appear as a subpoena issued by the Federal Court, and which requires that information be supplied via a link. Please note that under the Federal Courts Rules, a subpoena must be served personally (in person) and not by email. An example of a fraudulent email is shown below:
