    I contacted ATO Scam Report number on 1800 008 540 and reported it. After checking my files they confirmed they were not contacting me and lodged a scam report against this number.

    Caller: ATO

    Guys - as of today 9th May 2018 - I just called myself the ATO on 13 28 61 and they verified that the number 1800 305 499 is legitimate. You're safe !

    Caller: 1800 305 499

    This is the ATO's number. I got the call and it sounded like a scam, so I called the ATO 'scam line'. They had no record of the number, which was concerning, until they looked up my file and there was a record of someone from the ATO calling me. So they must use an outside number?? Pretty poor performance on the ATO's part that they have not recorded the number so we can verify it.
    But when you call the number back, you get through to the ATO.

    Scam call
    Australia
    Left message on voice mail to call them with my sisters TFN details regarding our account. Was told to call by close of business day on Wed. As I do have an account with my sister I called them. Sounded like the ATO, they even had waiting periods. Suddenly asked myself, "Why would the ATO be asking me for my sister's TFN?" Told them to get stuffed. This is a scam. They are getting too clever!

    Kay above might be someone working behind this scam.
    Confirmed with ATO, this is not a number from them.

    Its a legit number for the ATO, doesn't always work when calling back, can be cut off. I've spoken to the ATO to confirm it is one of their external lines.

    Claims to be from the Tax office. Calling at 8pm, wanting confirmation of identity and financial details. Saying I must call back by COB Wednesday (in 48 Hours. I am very suspicious.
