A recorded messgae saying my tax file number is suspended and a warrant has been issued for my arrest.
I've had these people calling me for weeks and I've had such fun with them cos they're such dumb 💩's and so far I've been Ma-Hat macoat, Bob Down, Shirley Ballroom, Jon Popadom, Julia Roberts, Kevina Rudd 😂😂🤣🤣🤣
I didn't listen to it after reading these complaints.It makes you wonder why ' the government' wouldn't track down and prosecute whoever is falsely calling saying they are the ATO Claimed it was fraud division on services Australia and that they were going to arrest me if I didn’t push 1 I am offended that both the government is doing nothing about these calls specially when they say its the ATO. Also why is Telstra not doing anything about this? Caller: Scammers
how can we do a reverse scam on these pricks, I put a block on them and it came through again
I blocked this caller but they have called again. Grr
A recorded messgae saying my tax file number is suspended and a warrant has been issued for my arrest. yadda yadda press 1 Me too Exactly the same as above voice recorded message saying fraud division, suspicious activity on my tax file number and my tax file number has been suspended. As per previous comments
Don't even bother calling back.
Just block and report as spam. Not sure what happens when you do report as spam (maybe nothing) but don't call back giving them verification that the number belongs to a person. You'll find yourself inundated with follow-ups...... Nigerian Prince, lotto win, inheritance, gold, ATO, Centrelink, the police etc etc
Caller: Scam call
Saw messages of threats above so called back. Rang once, then pause, then cut-off (temporary service difficulties).
Been getting similar calls.
The Govt, Telstra etc can't do a lot as these numbers generally come from overseas and using spoofing(?) technology to mimic Australian numbers.
Does not matter whether you are on Do Not Call Register etc, they still get through.
Once a number is shut down or blocked, as most people have found out, the scammers just move to another number and start again.
Never answerd my phone lets me know if it's fake number gather by these comments it's a ATO scam These pricks constantly call me everyday! Sick to death of it! Blocked them (and there repeated 'different' numbers they call from) and the govt. Or police won't do a single thing about it-why????? This is disgusting. However, glad i am not the only one receiving these calls from these bastards. Is this really a scam? Asking because I’ve been dealing with a tax agent & ATO only hours ago??? Scammers 🤑 this is bullsh*t! scam artists saying i will be jailed in 7 business days if i do not press 1 and "connect to the ATO".
Caller id said it was a call from Perth, W.A. The guy said he was calling from 'Australian Energy Comparisons'. He said he was calling in regards to helping me find the best deal for my business' electricity bills. Couple of problems with this 1) I sold the business to my business partner in 2016 and 2) Our power bills came under the warehouse/office space owner's name, as we just rented the office space and paid for our share. When I asked where they got my number and the incorrect information from, he said from 'Australian Data Management Service'. Looked them up and tried to call...'Optus advises that the number you have dialed is disconnected'. Scammer number. Someone needs to report them to the police. Caller: (08) 6205 3434
