I got a call from this number, but I know from my work in the Public Service that the ATO would never call you and threaten legal action. This is a scam and if you think logically, you have to be personally served with Court papers first if you are involved in a law suit. Just hang up or play along and pretend to be a dead famous person, the fact that they don't even catch on should tell you something. They Rang and left message on answering machine re tax. Said they were tax inspectors and demanding that account be paid. Rang them back and they continued to claim to be from tax office. Obvious scam. filthy low life scum preying on the elderly and vulnerable. Asian sounding female caller claiming to be from Australian Taxation Office. She did not know my name and seemed to be reading from a prepared sheet, ending with a warning note that it was not in my interests if I did not call back on the number (03) 8751 7054. When I called the number several hours later an Asian sounding man answered "Australian Taxation Office" and when I asked if it really was the ATO he hung up. They claim to be from the ATO and have details of a lawsuit against my name (this is even without knowing to whom they are talking). I merely said nothing and hung up. Scam scam scam Beware this is a SCAM saying there is a law suit against you, after further investigation I find that they claim to be the ATO Had a call from this number and an automated recording claimed the is a serious case been filed against me and time is imperative to call back. The line is always busy. Seemed very suspicious Scam Tax Office call (Sharon McCLLL, then Sebastian Grey), threatened court action, warrant for arrest unless settled outside court by paying all or part of stated unpaid tax debt immediately before proceeding further with settlement. Not interested in Credit card or Direct Debit, preferred buying electronic voucher from supermarket?? Left phone on desk for a few minutes, when picked up the line was dead. Reported to Satae Police, ATO, and AFP. said it was time sensitive and if i didn't call back the "outcome will unfold on you" Message left on my mobile from this number. Threatening legal action from a govt. department. Very poor English!! Company left message saying we had a legal charge against our name and that we had to call them back. Who are they? Thinking this is a scam. Recorded message supposedly from the tax office saying I had a law suit filed against me. Obviously a scamm Received call from female foreign voice who left a message on our answering service asking us "to call (03) 8751 7054 immediately pending a law suit before the situation unfolds". I called the number back and they tried to say that they were the ATO. The ATO never calls people threatening with a law suit, definitely a scam! Got text message saying I was being sued. Rang number back and foreign person answered "senior inspector speaking" apparently from Australian taxation office. When challenged on authenticity they hung up. I would guess a scam to get money but not from me. Automated voice message saying legal action has been made. No identifying information. Taxation Scam. Called my phone from this number. I hung up when they said it was the taxation office. I've never had a call from the Taxation Office before. Rang this number back and they answered with "Australian Taxation Office". They asked if I still lived at a previous address last used 8 years ago. Considering that I had checked my information this morning thru the "My Gov" website and my correct address is recorded, why would they need to contact me? BE SMART DON'T LET THEM STEAL YOUR IDENTITY.
