The Probe Group (03) 9093 0613...
They were debt collecting on behalf of the ATO - an overdue penalty bill issued to me for lodging income tax too late.
Received a call from number, left a voicemail message on my phone claiming to be from the taxation office. Called the number back (instead of the number they quoted) and it was Latrobe (or the Probe?) group. Believe this is most probably a tax office scam. ato tax office scam They call me this morning talk about ATO. Caller: Scammers
BS - this is a scam. Make no mistake the tax office does not employ collection agents in this manner.
Pass them on to your accountant or ignore.
A girl Indian accent introducing her in behalf of ATO left MSG asked to call on 1800 801 373. She called me by my middle name which is not my official name This phone number is unrecognized no. Caller: Beverley
Probe collections taking action on behalf of the ATO for an outstanding bill.
It’s not a scam, I wish it was though haha
Caller: No idea - therein lies the rub
Probably legit, total debt collector move made impossibly difficult by nanny state laws. Nevertheless, ask for the number for the tax office (make sure the tax office lists that number), what you should say and then call the tax office yourself.
Said they were from ATO. Ringing about my brother. Left a message saying to call back on 1800 801 373. No reason to ring me re my brothers stuff so clearly a scam. Block caller.

Legitimate company. Generally call on behalf of the ATO (we had a tax debt).
Sometimes call on behalf of CBA. Collection agency - not a scam, but they can't discuss anything without checking your details first. Eventually, they'll come knocking on the door.
Caller: Introduced himself as Sam Qalandari

Someone claiming to work on behalf of the ATO. The caller refused to provide any information other than to say "I'm calling on behalf of the ATO in relation to a personal taxation matter." She wouldn't say anything else unless I'd confirm my details, which I wouldn't. So she hung up. Australian lady called me and said she was from the ATO and did i have time to talk. I said I'm still at work so she said "uhh ok I'll call back next week" and hung up.
Sounded legit until the end and then I googled the number and saw this is a scam, careful everyone!
Claimed to be calling on behalf of the ATO, but refused to say where they worked unless I gave them information confirming my identity first - I confirmed that the caller was not from the ATO but only calling on their behalf, so I again requested they informed me where they were calling from (ie their employer) before I provided my personal information and they refused.
