Scammers demand Bitcoin in new twist on CRA scam

The ongoing Canada Revenue Agency Scam has a new twist:

The popular con has scammers calling up residents, claiming to represent the Canada Revenue Agency to get vulnerable people to cough up personal information, or send money.

Now the criminals are requesting to be paid in Bitcoin or 'cryptocurrency.'

The Niagara Regional Police remind residents this is a scam, you should never send money to these people, and just hang up the phone.
