Says they are the ATO and I have an arrest warrant for nonpayment of tax if I don’t ring them. I called the Police Assistance Line and they advised me that this scam is going 'viral'. Their advice: Do not answer, do not call them back and if you do answer, hang up immediately. Fake ATO debt and a warrant to arrest if one fails to return the call same. called the number back from a landline and they demanded i call back from mobile. in a very thick indian accent Poor voice recording saying I have a tax debt and will place a warrant for my arrest Scam Caller: Clains to be ATO
Unpaid taxes, arrest warrant. Also called from (02) 8091 6951.
i called them and said i work for ATO and the calls reported to police he called me a slut 4 times hahahah joke Yeah its a scam yes claiming to be from the ATO - scam Said they have an arrest warrant for me from ATO and also from collection agency Scam call about liens and avoiding taxes and tax office blah, blah, blah. It's good to put transparency around callers who are liars, scammers and cheaters Caller: 02 8091 3183
I called back and when they wanted my address I bailed. Indian accent with background noise like a call centre Caller: Fake ato
Complete scam, said I would be arrested if I didn’t pay them money today. I called the police and they confirmed that police don’t work that way.
Wanted me to go to atm and withdraw cash to deposit at another bank to pay the debt and remove arrest warrant. I received a call from them this morning, i mentioned that i was not familiar with this number and if they could email me so i could verify them and their company and my "tax issues". The toned changed and he seemed angry that i wanted him to email and mentioned that i could get in trouble. Strong Indian accent was not at all professional. Caller: voice recorded
threatening ATO call for incorrect tax filed and arrest
Fake ATO Scam -Indian very strange and automated voice message regarding Tax... I am not calling back!
& My mail supposedly returned to them!
Don't believe them!!
Computer voice left a message saying there is a warrant for my arrest, something about my address being registered as non compliant. Sounds super dodgy and scammy.
