Claiming to be tax department. Obviously scam. Recorded message said there was an AFP warrant for an unpaid tax bill.
Reported it to ATO who said neither AFP or ATO cold call and there is always correspondence to try to resolve matters before any such warrants would be issued
This phone number is currently used by a legitimate Real Estate business on Norfolk Island. It is NO LONGER a SCAM ! Caller: Norfolk Island Reality
This is now a legitimate business number. I pity the business as it has been allocated a number previously used for ATO scams.
This phone number is now allocated to a legitimate business located on Norfolk Island. recorded message Tax department claiming there is a warrant for my arrest blah blah blah...... Robotic generated voice message left claiming to be the ATO. Advised of potential arrest by AFP due to outstanding tax debt. 100% SCAM. I previously worked for the ATO and First point of contact is ALWAYS via the post. Such an intimidating approach to (even genuine) debt collection would never be undertaken (i.e. threats of AFP arrest). IGNORE. Same comments as Brian above. My Mum went to the Police. Apparently they're targeting the Runaway Bay (Gold Coast) area at the moment.
Male caller was very confident and convincing ...
DON'T GET CAUGHT OUT ... SCAMMERS!!!!
called and left a voicemail claiming to be ATO. Message started half way through sentence. Left a reference number. Tried to call back. Phone rang out. Scam pretending to be ATO Automated message posing as ATO - When called back answers as ATO, gives ATO Sydney address.
Message states AFP is pursuing you and will attempt to SCAM money.
Any Doubt immediately contact ATO on their listed numbers
False message from the ATO claiming to have a warrant for arrest. Recorded message telling me a complaint was about me was made to ATO and a warrant will be issued. Said to call back and do not ignore the call. Could tell it was scam right away. ABC has written about this scam. See http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-04-23/scam-call-threatens-arrest-warrant-legal-action-ato/9686796 The same ATO arrest threats, etc. 😡 Automated recording supposedly from Qld Police with warning re ATO & wanted us to ring them back on this number. Hung up when asked for their number. Same, recorded message Tax department claiming there is a warrant for my arrest blah blah blah...... Same here, recorded message saying AFP/ATO warrant for arrest due to tax, even mentioned a case number and to call the (02) 8006 7570 clearly a scam Computer produced voice message claiming legal case initiated against name. Sounds like a scam.
