Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

What you are describing sounds like a scam.

Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will only send you notification emails if you have subscribed to the service and the email will only advise the user to go into their secure tax account to see relevant information.

There are many scams involving fraudsters pretending to be CRA representatives/agents.

See the following:

http://globalnews.ca/news/3225702/canada-revenue-agency-email-scams-tax-season/

I would urge you to be vigilant.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
