Hello,
My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your question.
This is a scam.
First of all, if you're a US resident you don't pay taxes to Canada. You pay it to the US government. And you never pay it on the promise that you are going to get money. You pay it on actual INCOME.
If Canada did actually owe you money, and they already have $325,000 of YOUR money, why do they need more from your pocket? The answer is that they don't. You never have to pay anything to collect money that is already really yours. An up front fee, no matter what they say it's for, is the #1 sign of a fraud. Any legitimate transfer fees would be simply subtracted by the "canadian Recovery Corp" and you'd get all the rest free and clear with no strings attached.
Cease all contact with these scammers. SEND NO MONEY. Report the fraud to the FBI at IC3.gov and to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center at http://antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/
