Caller claimed to be from ATO and wanted speak to me about Tax Return. Just got into a discussion with Stephane Brown, Badge number 404415, on (02) 6100 8438 Case No. 7851274. Alleged tax fraud audit between FY 2010-2015.
Next, I spoke with his supervisor Agent Daniel Franklin who was rude and threatened me with AFP and court action. They were unprepared to provide me with copies of this call. They really knew nothing about the matter that they wanted to discuss with me.
Yep ..same idiot automated caller... Total scam! Do not give these guys any of your personal information. I just received a call from this idiot saying he was Alex Brown from the ATO. I couldn't understand his accent so I asked him to talk to his superior and he said eveyone was busy so I wrote his phone number on google and I got this, so I just told him I was going to call the police and he can go and F&^% himself Scam saying police were going to be at my door us accent Yep they left me a VM threatening to call back or the police will be at my door. I think i'll be ignoring that one. i just called them back at least 20 times to harass them. they stopped talking to me after a while. i don't care as they are free calls to me. ato scam. This is a scam number do not call back Just got a missed call from a Canberra number (02) 6100 8438), so I returned it... apparently the 'Tax Crime and Investigation Unit' is after me... gentleman asked me to confirm my mobile phone number (which I of course wouldn't do, nor did I give him my name), and he replied in a scary voice "well, how can I bring up your file then Miss Nadia?!?".... OMG you know my name, AND my phone number?! Shut up and take my money!!!!! Tax Scam.
Recorded American voice.
Threats on recorded voice message left on my mobile.
John Smith just left me a voicemail and emphasised on the urgency to give a call back and pay my tax. Scam, big time! Big scam get the message to call back listen to the Indian guy speak as her was from the ATO. Told him I had telstra tracing the call and he hung up Agent John Smith is wishing me luck while the situation unfolds. Good chat John, looking forward to our next one :) got the same call as someone above "agent john smith" .. how original Same as above. Scam claiming from the taxation office for officer John Smith... and if you don't respond "we wish you good luck as the situation unfolds" 20 feb 2017. Scam. I also got the same call from a john smith who left a message saying he was from the ato and if I didnt call then it'd be bad for me as the "situation unfolded" , hilarious.. I called back and got a guy with a strong indian accent who when I said he wasnt the ato proceeded to tell me I wasnt a real man and hung up ! Going to keep this number for occasional comedy purposes.. Clearly a scam. Mine was from Agent John Smith but it was a machine voice and used Americanisms like "Your attorney". We refer to legal practitioners as Solicitors and Barristers. Sounded like a scam to me.
