Beware of This Phone Scam


A phone scammer was no match for Media Relations Officer for the Sault Ste Marie Police Services, Sonny Spina.

The scammer told Spina he was calling on behalf of the Canada Revenue Agency and if he didn’t return the call immediately an arrest warrant would be issued for him.

Spina, knew exactly what to do, he turned it into a teachable moment, he recorded the call and posted it to Facebook

Spina, sat down with  ONNTV’s Lou Anne Young, to talk about the call.

Watch the interview with Lou Anne above.

  1. Thanks Sonny !!! Great work on this very serious problem that targets many people and sadly, does succeed, most often, I’m quite sure, against our most vulnerable ones. Have a great week end.
