A Clinton woman’s money is safe after she caught on to a scam.
The Huron County OPP says the woman got a call yesterday from someone claiming to work for the Canada Revenue Agency.
The caller told the woman she owed $3,800 in back taxes.
Someone else, also claiming to be a CRA agent, then picked up the phone and tried to intimidate the woman into paying through the purchase of Home Depot and Safeway gift cards.
She didn’t fall for the ruse, hung up and then called the police.
