Scammers New Ploy – “You Will Be Arrested”

 

Don’t be alarmed and don’t respond – just hang up!



       


 


If it wasn’t serious, it would be laughable.  Scammers have become serial pests.


 


Taxpayers are being telephoned by scammers who in quite a friendly way, explain that they can avoid arrest by paying a fine almost always just (less than $9,999) to the Australian Taxation Office.  Arrest will NOT happen!


Your tax agent will know what recovery action, if any, is being taken by the Australian Taxation Office.


Our advice is be prepared and assume you will receive a call from a scammer.  Some taxpayers simply never answer the phone – let the answer machine screen your calls and only call back legitimate callers.
