How did they open a bank account with direct deposit under your name?
I believe you just need an account number there was no confirmation as to account holder or anything like that. My wife is terrible with money so payments go directly into my account, we actually alternate between accounts quite often and its easy AF to do

SoupCan @SoupCan is correct

I asked revenue Canada the same thing. They said they just need my SIN and DOB to set up a service Canada account and not a bank account in my name. Said this is happening a lot. More than likely the bank account will be receiving multiple people’s CERB/EI claims. I should hear back from them within the next three days.

What a shit show.

Hopefully you can lock your shit down. I think there are online services that will monitor your info and alert you if it’s used again.

The Canadian govt should be embarrassed.

It seems like no one in Ontario, even the cops that are supposed to enforce the new order, knows what the new order really says.
