More Scams in Perth. Please beware.

If you receive a call or a missed call from a “02” or “03” number and at the other end of the call is a recorded message supposedly from the ATO () then just hang up.

To be sure it was not a genuine call, then call the ATO directly yourself on 1800 008 540 and speak to a real person and see if it really was the ATO making that call.

Chances are, IT WAS NOT a genuine call from the ATO.

Scammers are trying to get you to leave a voice-message so they can use your voice as a means of identifying you and steal your identity

The ATO are increasing using your “VoicePrint” to identify you when dealing with the ATO (see https://www.ato.gov.au/General/Online-services/Voice-authentication/)

So this latest wants you to leave a voicemail or message so that they can steal your “VoicePrint” and impersonate you.
