Unfortunately during times like these there are some people looking to take advantage of you:

Note - The ATO will NEVER:-

· Send an email or SMS with a hyperlink direct to our online services such as myGov.

· Request personal identifying information via a return email unless you have agreed to engage with us in this way

· Send you unsolicited pre-recorded messages to your phones using a fake or ‘spoofed’ phone number

· Threaten you with immediate arrest and insist you or your clients stay on the line until a payment is made

· Prevent you from discussing your tax affairs with your accountant

· Make a conference call between us and you

· Request payment of a debt via iTunes, Google Play cards or other vouchers, cryptocurrency, cardless cash transfer, offshore wire transfer or into a bank account not held by the Reserve Bank of Australia

· Ask you to pay a fee to receive a refund.

· To check if a suspicious call, message or request is from us, you can phone the ATO scam hotline on 1800 008 540.
