Canada Revenue SCAM

This is part of a scam email that I received today. I have no association with Canada, yet they owe me half-a-mil? What a country.

These scams have been going on for several years and CRA has a website full of advice about them.

Protect yourself against fraud

Perhaps your name came up on the scammers' bots if you were searching Canadian websites. Apparently many US citizens have been doing that this week.

Thanks. I guess that I factored inflation in at an incorrect rate.
