📵 PLEASE KEEP YOUR GUARD UP WHEN ANSWERING UNIDENTIFIED NUMBERS 📵
The ATO have issued another warning regarding an alarming new TFN scam ☠️
This particular scam involves a robo-call impersonating the ATO with a pre-recorded message, telling the target that their Tax File Number (TFN) has been suspended due to suspected fraudulent activity.
The victim is asked to transfer money from their bank to a fake ATO holding account to “protect” their funds.
While there are circumstances in which the ATO will contact taxpayers, please note they will NEVER: 🔹Send unsolicited pre-recorded phone messages
🔹Use aggressive / rude behaviour, or threaten you
with immediate arrest, jail or deportation
🔹Suspend your TFN
