     Scams awareness week

    4 November 2021

    Scammers are always looking for new ways to trick people into handing over money or information.

    When it comes to ATO impersonation scams, there are some tell-tale signs that will help you spot the real from the fake.

    The real ATO will never:

    • threaten you with immediate arrest
    • cancel your TFN
    • send unsolicited pre-recorded messages to your phone
    • keep you on the phone until a payment is made
    • request payment via unusual methods, like cryptocurrency, gift cards or cardless cash.

    To help keep the community safe, we’ve partnered with the ACCC this Scams Awareness Week.

    This year’s theme is ‘let’s talk scams’, so we encourage you to take this opportunity to start a conversation with your employees.

    Passing on our tips, or sharing a scam experience you’ve had, could make all the difference the next time they receive a suspicious call or request.
