The Probe Group (03) 9093 0613...
They were debt collecting on behalf of the ATO - an overdue penalty bill issued to me for lodging income tax too late.
Received a call from number, left a voicemail message on my phone claiming to be from the taxation office. Called the number back (instead of the number they quoted) and it was Latrobe (or the Probe?) group. Believe this is most probably a tax office scam. ato tax office scam They call me this morning talk about ATO. ato tax office scam. Don't give any details Caller: Scammers
BS - this is a scam. Make no mistake the tax office does not employ collection agents in this manner.
Pass them on to your accountant or ignore.

It’s not a scam, I wish it was though haha
Caller: No idea - therein lies the rub
Probably legit, total debt collector move made impossibly difficult by nanny state laws. Nevertheless, ask for the number for the tax office (make sure the tax office lists that number), what you should say and then call the tax office yourself.

Legitimate company. Generally call on behalf of the ATO (we had a tax debt).

Someone claiming to work on behalf of the ATO. The caller refused to provide any information other than to say "I'm calling on behalf of the ATO in relation to a personal taxation matter."

I said I'm still at work so she said "uhh ok I'll call back next week" and hung up.
Sounded legit until the end and then I googled the number and saw this is a scam, careful everyone!
