It's a robotic voice which doesn't say where it's calling from and demands that you call them back immediately and if you don't, they will issue an arrest warrant for you. It is definitely a scam. Do not call them back. I've heard from colleagues who have similar calls but the callers identified themselves as the ATO. I was told I would be arrested if I didn't call back. I know it's a scam but it's still horrible :-( Caller: American accent scam
American accent scam on arrest warrant. See SMH article dated 03/12/2018 "It's not us" ATO's fresh warning as scam losses hit $830,000 ...
Got the same call as this person - definitely a robotic voice which demands that you call them back immediately and if you don't, they will issue an arrest warrant for you. It is definitely a scam. Do not call them back. The callers identified themselves as the ATO. As if the ATO would give you a warning before they knocked on your door.

Scam scam scam scam!! robotic voice demanding a call back or it will issue an arrest warrent Number (02) 6100 4165 - called with robotic voice mail message threatening arrest if you don't call back immediately.

Had the same phone call today. Definitely a scam. Scam https://www.ato.gov.au/General/Online-services/Identity-security/Scam-alerts/ While these scam calls may appear to be from the ATO with a spoofed caller ID, it is important to remember that a legitimate caller from the ATO will never:
threaten you with arrest
demand immediate payment, particularly through unusual means such as bitcoin, pre-paid credit cards or gift cards
refuse to allow you to speak with a trusted advisor or your regular tax agent
or present a phone number on caller ID
Scam - do not call the number the robotic voice states - this is an ATO scam. same message as below I rang once and got disconnected
