Scammer calls off duty cop and gets a response he never expected

Phone scammers are constantly trying to come up with new ways to get people to give up their money.

They prey on the elderly, the gullible, the fearful, and anyone naive enough to believe them.

They are the lowest of the low.

A popular ruse over the past few years has been the CRA scam.

The CRA is the Canada Revenue Agency, which is the Canadian equivalent of the IRS.

The plot is always the same and the caller is authoritative and threatening.

He leaves a message that tells the victim that they have committed tax fraud and that they have failed to declare income.

They have reported the matter to the police authorities and an arrest warrant has been issued.

The caller identifies himself as an officer who is sending the local police to drag the offender off to jail.

Surprisingly, a substantial percentage of people actually fall for the scam and they pay the caller the amount that they believe they owe the government.

Conveniently, this payment can be made through iTunes, or similar internationally recognized currency.
