  • ATO tax bonus scam..warning

    guys just received a call by an ATO consultant name John Harrod who incredibly has a very broad Indian accent. Told me I just received a bonus because my name was randomly drawn out. Didn't ask for any personal info, but gave me a number to call to lodge the bonus.
    Rung up the "real" ATO and they said it was a scam. I wanted to ring the number and play their scenario, but the ATO didn't recommend it.
    Has any one had a similar call lately

      Lies.

      The real ATO are just testing you because they don't want you to win your bonus. More money for them.

      I'll be calling when i win my bonus.

                They're bona fide. It's the Afghanistan Tax Office. Thing is, the rebates only come in opium or bullets.

                        Probably nothing to do with my compromised Playstation account but I have started getting sms's stating I've won a nokia prize give away with a number to call in some far away land.

                          More believable if they said you made a mistake on your tax return and owed them money. Call this secure number to make a payment.

                          Guessing the number leads to a $9.95/min call where you sit on hold indefinitely?
