The OPP says the tax scam is making the rounds in Perth County.
What usually happens is you’ll get a legitimate looking email supposedly from the Canada Revenue Agency.
It’ll ask you to fill in all kinds of personal information, something you should not do.
Police are reminding you that the CRA will never request your personal information by email.
