Latest Scam Warning involving the ATO

 

We have heard about the significant increase in new Email, SMS and Phone Scams that are claiming to be from the ATO.They are aggressively threatening legal action, police warrants and house repossession unless recipients comply with their demand to pay a non-existent debt.


They are providing return phone numbers and websites to settle the debt and even demanding that people go directly to the bank and transfer the funds.They are also requesting personal information, tax file numbers and credit card details.

The ATO will never contact anyone via SMS or email or make unsolicited phone calls with a request for personal or financial information.If you have a registered tax agent, such as Brown & Benson, the ATO should be contacting your tax agent with any queries, not yourself.

The ATO will never send details of a tax refund via email directly, they will contact you asking you to log into my.gov to view the correspondence.

If you are contacted in this manner, please do not supply any information, make any payments or open any electronic links or attachments.

If you suspect that you have responded to an ATO scam we recommend you speak to your financial institution and contact your local police.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Kind regards

John Freame and Paul Shannon
Directors, Brown & Benson Accountants
