Seventy arrests have been made at a fraudulent call centre in India that was carrying out an international phone scam.

Greater Sudbury police says since then …the number of incidents involving callers posing as Canada Revenue Agents has declined significantly.

Residents were told they owed a large amount of taxes and were asked to provide immediate payment through either a money transfer, credit card or prepaid gift card.

Police remind residents to never provide financial information before confirming the source of the call.
