    Caller: Not the Australian Taxation Office

    A recorded message was played. The message claimed to be from the Australian Taxation Office and stated I had an outstanding tax liability. The voice had a slight British accent. See

    https://www.ato.gov.au/Tax-professionals/Newsroom/Your-practice/Scammers-fake-ATO-phone-numbers/

    The ATO will never:

    - issue a pre-recorded message (robocall) to a taxpayer's phone
    - present a phone number on caller ID
    - threaten immediate arrest, jail or deportation for unpaid tax debts
    - demand immediate payment of a tax debt by direct credit to a personal bank account, via iTunes or Google Play cards, pre-paid Visa cards, or cryptocurrency
    - refuse to allow the taxpayer to speak with a trusted advisor or regular tax agent
    - attempt to keep the taxpayer on the line until they make a payment
