Scammers trying to convince you that you are going to be arrested for ATO fraud if you do not pay them money. I also just received a call from (02) 6152 8679/">(02) 6152 8679 saying:
Hi I am calling you from the Legal department of the Australian Taxation Office. The reason of this call is to make you aware that you have received an affidavit against your name. where you are being listed as a pimary suspect for a case being filed against your name and your house is under surveillance so do not disregard this message and call me back as soon as possible on (02) 6152 8679 I repeat that is (02) 6152 8679.
I just got a message today, that the Commonwealth Dept of Public Prosecutions has a case filed in my name, not that they knew what my name was! Caller was a woman with a British-Indian sounding accent. Something about tax evasion and tax fraud and that I or my criminal lawyer must call the moment I get the message, before I get arrested!
This is what happened when I called them back: https://cl.ly/2u081N0r0c3z. The wording of the recorded message I received is identical to this. Mine was a recorded voice. Called me on 30/03/17. 30th March this scammer is still calling people Had a call form this number (02) 6152 8679 saying that I need to call them back urgently otherwise I could face criminal charges. I knew it was a scam and told him that I worked for the tax department, as soon as i said this he hung up. The phone line is disconnected when I tried calling him back to have another go at him....... Me Too - some 50IQ lowlife suncontinental scammer They are evil criminals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had the message, called back abused them. Blocked my number. Called again today and scammed him. Said I was from ATO and he blue up hahaha Called me today, your house is under surveillance gave it right away, haha it still had me going for a second, when will they learn to employ someone who knows English, or has an intelligent understanding of our culture. This number called with a digital lady voice telling me I was being watched due to not vaccinating (they didn't specify who or what) then said my house was under servallience and I was being watched... when I called back to find out there wa no answer Ohh, they won't answer their phone... I wanted to have some fun with them :)
Gotta love having fun with scammers - Haven't they learnt that official business is never done over a phone?
Damn, I'll keep trying to get through!
Absolute scam!!!! Same recorded message, house under surveillance etc etc Said it was the ATO and my house was under surveillance Harassing automated call SPAM Got the same identical call as below on 4 April on my mobile - a woman with a slight accent on a recorded message from the "ATO" saying an "affidavit has been filed against you" and that "your house [even though I live in a unit block] is under surveillance" and I should "call back immediately". I rang the number back just to see who it was and it was disconnected according to vodafone. Looked up scamwatch,gov.au and lo and behold there it was.
