Posing as ATO/fraud It seems like a mega scam. They use scare tactics. They told me I would be safe if I didn't tell anyone.
Posing as ATO from Canberra
I didn't take the call but they left voicemail to call the ATO and repeated the number.
A dull-sounding American female. trying to sound 'important', I guess.
ATO Scam. Called them back, and they only had a voicemail service. Keep calling back to play music to their voicemail. Hopefully will fill the mailbox so they can't scam as many people. ATO Scam. Just had them call me again. Same American Digitized Voice Fraud voicemail message reporting my warrant for arrest will be executed. Start of the message cut off, sounded automated Scam, left electronic voiced message threatening to arrest me! No nomes, company any identification Caller: (02) 6176 1595
Called me and left a voicemail so I called back and they said they were the ATO and I had comitted tax fraud for the past 5 years and they were going to freeze all of my ID, Passports, and the police were coming around to my house to issue an arrest warrent and I was being charged with 3 commonwealth offences due to my tax fraud - what a load of sh*t! Then they asked how I would like to settle my balance owed to them FRAUD FRAUD , BLOCK them!
Absolute rubbish recorded message, claiming tax office prosecution. Tried to call the number back, and it instantly disconnects. Caller: Someone posing as ATO
This clearly was a scam - they claim they are from ATO and that they claim they sent you a letter. They ask you to return a call immediately
Scam! Block block block tax scam... You missed a call from (02) 6176 1595, who said "This is final warning from Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions on behalf of Australian Taxation Office." This message was provided by Telstra at no charge to you. ROFLCOPTER!! Trying to do the age old ATO Scheme the ATO never call. These guys don't like being recorded. Why can't they find and arrest these scumbags. ATO scam ATO SCAM SCAM: recorded message of threats, final warning. Big BS. Mechanised american accent voice supposedly from the director public prosecutions on behalf of ATO and asking me to call. This is about the 6th time I have had this call. It's a SCAM. This has been raised on talkback radio and the head of the Consumer Affairs department warned listeners not to respond as they have conned people out of money. Ato scam- not to tell anyone and how far are you from the atm to withdraw your money
