The RCMP have confirmed with Indian authorities that an additional 16 fraudulent call centres have been dismantled since October.
These fraudulent call centres were believed to be targeting Canadians by perpetrating Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) scam calls.
This coordinated effort comes as a result of information provided to the Indian authorities by the RCMP with the support of the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC).
A total of 19 fraudulent call centres have been dismantled since September.
This latest development is part of a broad and long-standing international effort to address call centres that perpetuate fraud.
This success has been a collaborative effort by the RCMP, the CFC, Indian authorities and Five Eyes law enforcement partners.
While more fraudulent call centres have been dismantled, the RCMP and the CAFC would like to remind Canadians that prevention and awareness continue to be important in reducing the victimization from these calls.
The RCMP encourages anyone receiving a suspicious phone call to hang up and verify their information directly with the CRA at 1-800-959-8281.
