I received a call from this number, but it definitely was not Berkelouw Books. Someone has hacked into their number. It claimed to be the ATO criminal department saying they had a warrant for my arrest and to cut a long story short, that I had to immediately pay $3260 in unpaid taxes or face five years in jail for tax avoidance and fraud. They ewer extremely convincing, giving me badge numbers, case numbers, the whole bit. I realised after a while it was a scam and they idiot hung up on me saying, "I'll see you in court". This was followed by a call from a blocked number saying it was the Australian federal Police. I told them where to go.
