On 2 consecutive days in Sept 2017, I got 1 call from each of 3 different numbers:(02) 6145 0273, (02) 6145 0274 and (02) 6140 3463.
They all had the same recorded mssg of a male with American accent saying that he is Matthew Clark from Aust Tax Office and there is a lawsuit pending, and I must call back this number, and I must not ignore his mssg.
I don't believe that it was from the ATO as they would normally ask for a person by name and ask for ID details before saying what the phone call was about.
Scammer pretending to be from the ATO Same. Said federal police had warrant out for my arrest due to tax fraud. Wanted to know who did my tax returns. Myself or accountant, said federal police would explain further when they served my warrant. Have started getting these numbers as well. Was others numbers, but they appear to have changed as a lot of people hanging up on them :-)
Just contact ATO direct if you have any questions.
