SCAM ALERT! Did the Australia Taxation Office (ATO) or the Australian Federal Police (AFP) call you on your cell phone?
There’s a new version of an old tax scam doing the rounds, but guess what scammers, we’re exposing your secrets.
An example of a recent scam is -
Be suspicious as offical bodies such as the AFP and ATO will NEVER request payment of fines or other monies over the phone, such as:
🚫Prepaid gift cards (eg iTunes or Google Play).
🚫Direct credit to be paid into a personal bank account or via an ATM.
🚫Demand immediate payment, use aggressive behaviour, or threaten you with arrest or deportation.
As your accountant, we feel that it is our responsibility to warn you about the scams that could be affecting you. If someone from the ATO or AFP calls and sounds suspicious - hang up the phone and block the number - they are not who you think they are.
