Robotic voice claiming to be from the Tax Office and stating that there is an arrest warrant out for me, and push '1' to talk to someone about it. Scam! Caller: Scamer
I can't understand, why Australian police do not take any actions against such callers? It is easy for police to identify phone owners and from where called. Seems, that Australian police support them.
Scam. Claims to be from ATO. Ignore and delete. Do not attempt to return the call.
Caller: ATO scam call
Recorded message about an arrest by the ATO
Scammer from “Tax Office”. Call originates from Perth. Just let it ring out.
Like others I received a pre-recorded message left on my voicemail claiming the ATO had a warrant for my arrest and to call a number. I knew it was a scam as we’ve been warned on TV and radio to ignore scam calls claiming to be banks or government institutions requesting private information of us. Funny thing is during lockdown we were spared these nuisance calls! hung up as soon as i answered Same modus operandi as previous comments. Don't know the reasoning behind the call - are they after TFNs? Now blocked. The recorded voice saying that it was calling from Service Australia and the payment was suspended. Press one to get more details. Caller: Scammer
Personal call from someone with an accent suggesting call centre. Knew my name, claimed to be from Amazon, that someone had hacked my Amazon account and ordered an iPhone and that I would be charged $599 if I did not cancel, and that to cancel I should while on the phone enter a specific website with non-Amazon related name into my browser. Could not offer any details about my Amazon account that had allegedly been hacked or provide any good reason why Amazon would not contact me via registered email.
scam call from perth Same call here just now - Perth WA Wed 10/3/21 1.36pm Caller: Scam robo call
Same as other comment....my tax file number has been suspended and must dial 1 to avoid a claim being lodged against me in the federal court!
Caller: big fat scamers
I block them and they keep ring me on other phone numbers.
Like all the others have said above - claiming to have legal action 'out against you' - and 'press 1' to avoid going to court and jail, etc., etc. Claiming to be the tax office.
And like others have said ... this is an Australian landline number, and someone should be doing something about it. Telstra? The police? Bueller? Anybody?
Not sure what happens if you press '1' as instructed in order to find out the legal action they're threatening. I waited on the line to see what would happen when you don't press anything, and it simply hangs up.
Caller hung up when their call went to my voicemail, before I could pick up the call. Caller: Scammer
Robotic voice, scam alert!
I pressed 1 and enjoyed the phone call after telling them that their employee number was fake. I was hoping to stay on the line for longer and enjoy the great conversation we were having. It’s a pity I can’t get back through when I try to call them back, I was just warming up.
Caller: (08) 6205 3427
Caller: "tax office"
As per others, a robotic voice with the wrong name for the department they were claiming to be calling from. When with ACMA shut these people down?
