Then I wrote my accountant

Hi Barb

is this legit or a scam? Why would Revenue Canada be using an email address?

Then she responded

this is a scam


Maybe suspicious besides it coming from an email account is the fact that if Revenue Canada was emailing me about a refund shouldn’t they already have my SIN #? Maybe this is one of those reasons I was told growing up never to give out my SIN #? Maybe somehow these people would use that info to rule the world.

Well I foiled them.
