Tax Scams

Every tax time is an opportunity for scammers to target the unwary.

This time around, the scammers are phoning and claiming to be from the prosecutions department of the ATO. They then state that they believe you have committed fraud and the Sheriff’s Office has been called. You can of course make this all go away by transferring cash using the details they provide or by giving your details to them. All of it is fake.

There are a number of variations to this fake arrest warrant scam. In some cases a message is left on an answering machine obliging the person to call back.

Understandably for those with outstanding tax debt, these calls can cause concern.

If you receive a call like this, you should feel free to hang up and to not give them any personal information.

If your Unsure contact your agent
