Hello Chasers,

The Christmas Season always brings the scammers out of the woodwork as they try to ‘fleece’ hard-earned cash from the vulnerable as well as unsuspecting business owners.

In the lead-up to Christmas the Australian Tax Office (ATO) is warning the public of ongoing reports of tax debt scams, reminding the public to be careful if they receive a strange call about their tax.

The scammers will often call or leave a recorded message on your phone, advising of a tax debt and that if you don’t pay it straight away, you’ll be arrested.

If you’re ever unsure whether an ATO interaction is genuine, hang up. You can phone the ATO on 1800 008 540 to check.
