Canada Border Agency Scam Call and Arrest Warrant

Beware of scammers posing as Canada Border Services Agency employees. Remember, CBSA will never call you asking for your SIN or credit card information. If you've received a call from the CBSA, this is a strong indicator of a scam. The CBSA does not contact the public directly. The Canada Border Services never requests payments, personal or financial information, such as Social Insurance Number (SIN) or credit card numbers.

    Call from 604-845-5922 claiming to be from CBSA and indicating a package was sent using my name containing illegal items and to be delivered by Canada Post. A warrant had been issued for my arrest and I could press '1' to speak to an agent. I hung up.

    I received a call from 647-556-3312 claiming to be from CBSA and indicating a package was sent using my name containing illegal items. A warrant had been issued for my arrest and I could press '1' to speak to an agent. I kind of wished I pressed '1' instead of hanging up to hear what came next.
