Some robotic voice saying they are from tax office said if I don't call them back they would arrest me. Robo call with yank accent advising that I will be arrested if I don't call (03) 9013 4917. Does anyone know where this call is originating from? It was a robot call with a man with an American accent. He said he was from the ATO and that I must ring this number or i wld be arrested. I rang back a few times but it was always engaged. I received the same call from the same number today. Obviously a major scam.
Tried to call the ATO but got the voice message run around.
Robotic voice left a voicemail claiming I was going to be arrested for fraud. Yeah. I got the exact same call I missed it and they left me a message. I have to assume that it is a scam because they didn't leave a message in their actual voice or give a name or even say my name. Nothing to identify anyone apart of the situation I just received this as well, same deal -> "ATO has called you and if you don't call back you will be arrested" which is pretty BS.
Not going to reply/assume it's some sort of scam.
Stay safe everyone.
Exactly the same call for me too about 10 minutes ago and I thought of checking it online. It turns out to be yet another scam. Caller: (03) 9013 4917
Today I got a calling from this number too. I've already got my taxes returned and i don't think i have any problems.
Same as above. Me too. Exactly the same: robotic voice saying they are from tax office said if I don't call them back they would arrest me.
Probably a scam, isn't it?
Same as previous comment called saying from the tax office and I would be arrested if I didn't call them back. I received the same call but knew right away it was a scam. Here's the advise from the ATO:
The same as below- a robot saying they are going to put a warrant out for my arrest if I don't get in touch with them regarding a tax issue Caller: Sounds like a robot
A robot voice saying they are the tax office with a lawsuit against me... coming from Melbourne
yep I just got this message too...gonna delete the voice message, keep the number and report to ATO Scammer Alert: Saying a suitcase was filed under your name and they arrst you if you dont call back Just received this call from same number, samething. automated message saying that a law suit had been lodged in my name and if I didn't call back an arrest warrant would be issued. SCAM! Caller: 9013 4917
I had a call from the same number saying exactly the same thing they are from tax office said if I don't call them back they would arrest me.
