Yet Another Business Phone Scam – Threatening Lawsuit If You Don’t Call This (premium rate) Number

If you get a phone call which is a recorded phone message saying this is the ATO (Australian Tax Office for everyone non-Australian) and they’re going to take legal action against you unless you ring this number… don’t call it because it’s mega-premium rate.

We had two of these today which I reported to the ATO fraud squad.

If you ring the number you’ll be well out of pocket.

It’s another scam.

Hopefully the number will be shut down as a result of my call.

Keep on Optimising Your Business and don’t be side-tracked by scammers.

If in doubt, call the ATO yourself – click on this link for their number.
