Telephone Scam Warning

A property taxpayer called to say they had received an “automated” call on Saturday from an unknown caller saying that they owed outstanding property taxes and that they could make a payment by pressing #1 on their phone.

Fortunately, this taxpayer assumed something fishy so hung up the phone and then reported it to the City. We asked the taxpayer to also report the incident to the RCMP. 

Please note that City doesn’t solicit property tax payments over the phone. If you receive such a call, please hang up and report to the RCMP.
