I received a call from this number and when I tried to return the call, was advised the number was disconnected. The number called me back again yesterday - it was an automated message advising that I breached some tax laws and would be arrested, with it being my final warning; I was then advised to press '1' to speak to the operator at which time I hung up. Call BLOCKED! I also received the same call twice this morning from (02) 6216 1111, also BLOCKED!

ATO spam call - prerecorded message threatening arrest for tax violation

The automated message malfunctioned and played on my voicemail service. Here's the transcript:
"This is the final reminder call from Australian Taxation Office.
There is income tax violation been reported under your name through our ATO informant program.
This is the final reminder to connect with ATO Officials to resolve tax debts and avoid additional penalties and subsequent arrest. To connect immediately, press 1"

prerecorded message saying there is a debt under my name and a warrant will be issued for my arrest, press 1 to connect. Hung up when I didn't press 1
its a scam ato call do not give out details SCAM Number, pretending to be ATO claiming I have a tax debt. SCAM Scam call with recorded message. Saying that it was my last reminder to pay tax from ATO. Al Called back, not a real number its from someone pretending they are from the ATO, do NOT answer Same here. The call showed up as someone calling from Canberra. Called back and Telstra said number was not connected. Another scam call. This number called and was an automated message regarding alleged tax fraud advising that I need to speak to a tax representative ASAP to avoid financial penalty or arrest. Recorded has an English accent.
I have been receiving other calls from relating to Tax Research which I have just been hanging up on or ignoring so assume it relates to this.
I am convinced it is a scam as pretty sure ATO (which wasn't mentioned) would contact through myGov if it was legit.
This number called me, I answered and said hello, but they disconnected within seconds. Caller: Scammer
This is a ATO tax debt robo-call scam
