Have you been targeted by scammers impersonating a government body, ATO, myGov, Centrelink, Medicare etc?

 

As we approach tax time, it’s important that you are aware of threat-based impersonation scams.

 

Technology allows scammers to replicate any website, email addresses and phone numbers on caller ID. 

 

Please be wary of suspicious phone calls, texts or emails and stop and ask yourself ‘is this for real?’
