Received an automated voice message from the tax office. The number is a Melbourne number. I live in Brisbane. This number is suspicious to me and I hung up. SCAMMERS They are doing a lost luggage message scam: Message says 'Is that there is a lost(?) suitcase (?) is getting filed under your name. The moment you receive this message I want you to get back to me on my department division no.390" It was automated voice message pretending to be from the ATO saying I owed money or something and said to call back this number. I hung up before the message finished, seemed dodgy to me. I got call from this no and they put me on hold 2 hours they told me your tax was not done last few years and and federation police sending a arrest warrant to you and you have to pay 10000 doller to stop that .i told them I called my accountant and they said you cannot hang up the phone we want your phone line clear and they asked me my accountant no after that I got call from my accountant no and he said to me to pay the amount and I paid after that I found it was scam and I loose my money and my accountant said to me I didn’t call you I received a voice message from this number, I called back but it’s switched off. Automated voice message! Seemed doggy to me! i also had a missed call from them today 7 november Computer message telling me i would be arrested. They left a message "There is a lawsuit is getting filed under your name. The moment you receive this message I want you to get back to me department division no. 3902."
Dont know number which is Vic and I am in Brisbane.
Same automated message from Melbourne to Brisbane. I deleted the voicemail. Received a message following a missed called from a computerised voice stating that a law suit case was getting filed under my name and requesting I call them back. If I didn't call them back, an arrest warrant would be issued under my name and I would be arrested.
I consider this to be a scam call.
Scam caller, automated voicemail saying that if we didn't call back they'd would issue an arrest warrant. Scam call, plays a recorded message stating it would initiate arrest procedure if not complied to the request Says an arrest warrant will be issued if they don't receive a callback. The male with English accent sounds like a robot rather than human (text to speech software) as it lacks intonation. Caller: Indian Scammers
Under arrest by the ATO
I just had the same call! Didn't answer though same Same as above. Caller: Scammer
Scam, recorded msg says its from tax office and to call back or you will be arrested, haha does anyone fall for this crap??
