Australian Taxation Office—door-to-door scam warning
The Assistant Treasurer, the Hon. Nick Sherry has issued a warning to Australians of a suspected door-to-door scam by people claiming to be consultants from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
The alleged bogus consultants ask people to sign up to a fictional government program promising financial incentives, including a reduction in taxes.
In return for signing up, scammers will ask you for personal information such as credit card information or banking details.
Remember scammers can use your personal information to steal your money and identity. Don't give out personal information about your credit card, banking details or superannuation fund unless you can verify that you are giving it to a trusted source.
