Beware of "INTERAC e-Transfer from Canada Revenue Agency System" Scams

Criminals may attempt to convince you they have sent you money, by sending you an email that appears to be using the Interac e-Transfer service. For example, you may receive an email stating that Interac is holding money in escrow until you provide evidence of having shipped goods. Interac does not offer an escrow service. Do not assume you will be able to receive money until you can confirm that it is in your bank account.

Please continue reading below.


The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) does NOT use the Interac e-Transfer service to collect or disburse payments. If you receive an email stating that the CRA is trying to send you money or verify personal information, do not respond. This is a known phishing scam, created by fraudsters. Please forward the email to phishing@interac.ca so our fraud team can further investigate.
