    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!
    Scammers!!!

    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.......

    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.
