WARNING – ATO Refund Email Scam


It’s tax refund time in Australia, and of course that means it’s email scam time. I just received the above email claiming the ATO had tried to pay me a refund to my credit card on file with them, however it failed but if I click this link and update my details then they could pay me… This was an easy one to recognise as a scam as I’ve never registered with the ATO’s electronic portal as my accountant handles my returns each year.

Share this around to all your family and friends so they don’t get scammed!
