ATO scam saying your in trouble don't worry block the call The message left on my home phone answering machine, was threatening that police would be knocking on my door and my credit file would be affected if I did not call them back. Literally those words. The number that called me was (02) 6176 1112. Which would be a Sydney number. When I called back, no answer.
If anyone knows who it is, could you let me know as I wish to report them to the authorities because its against the law to threaten people, especially with false claims.
Received an ATO scam call from this number. I called the ATO and they confirmed the number is not one of their numbers. I called the scam number back and told them that I had confirmation this number was a scam and didn't exist - they hung up pretty quickly and wouldn't answer when I called them again. Yes this is a scam. Do not engage or worry. refer to the ATO site:
Disturbing prank recorded message, American accent saying call from prosecutor office on behalf of ATO, call back number or police officer at your doorstep ATO Scam - automated message threatening police would turn up on our doorstep. Just had a call too - scam How does it work i rang back no one answered. I just took a call from this number purporting to be the ATO - I just laughed and hung up.
Don't ring them back.
Just received a call from them as well. ATO scam. Sounded very dodgey. Proper Scam lol. ATO scam yes - I got the same thing.
Was using the wrong language such as 'dragged into court' and 'put behind bars'
Just tell them you are recording this call also and handing it to Federal Police
