From time to time we receive phone calls from clients informing us that somebody called them claiming that they were from the Australian Taxation Office. The caller proceeds to inform the client that they have committed tax evasion and that a warrant will be issued for their arrest. It is obvious that the caller is not from the ATO and the sole purpose of the call is to scam the client.
Increasingly, criminals are trying to scam unsuspecting people by posing as another person or organisation through emails. From a quick glance, these emails appear to be legitimate, however, with a little digging, you will find that they are not genuine at all.
