    Indian (or similarly accented person) "Eric Foster" doing the ATO tax fraud scam with a recorded message.

    I called back, to be told by the same guy that "Eric" was not available, but that he, "James Anderson", would handle the case. He said I had committed tax fraud and threatened lawsuits and jail time courtesy of the Federal Police. When I said, "bring it on", he said he was signing the necessary papers and hung up.

    Similar to others, had a recorded message from "Eric Foster" a guy with an Indian accent supposedly from ATO requesting I call back to discuss serious matter. Obviously I did not call back but you can bet it is a SCAM

    similar to others, had a call from a guy with an indian accent supposedly ATO and saying that i had a debt (which i do) and that if i get money from family members or out of my superannuation to call him and he can give me a discount. also said not to tell me anyone why i needed the money. Knew it was a scam right away. when i asked for his name and employee number he gave me some numbers and even a warrant number which i knew then it was rubbish as i dont have a warrent against me.

    A recorded voice stating that an ATO investigation was underway and that to avoid legal costs I would have to return his call. Is this Asian voice so incredulous that he thinks anyone would believe or his spiel.

    I have the same problem this problem. I got a call from this number and I spoke to Eric Foster asking me to pay outstanding tax due otherwise he will proceed to file awaarent against. I tried to get more information, he refused. I reported him to taxation office and they will take action. Meantime ATO asked me to hang up on this number should they ring again.

    Got a message from Eric Foster - supposedly from the ATO claiming an investigation is happening and arrest warrant will be issued etc. Asian or indian accent.
    Total scam. Have receive similar calls using different number - also claiming similar threats from Eric Foster.
    He at least said "God bless and have a nice day?!"
