Mackay Police are urging us to be cautious following the discovery of a new ATO scam. The scammers have been manipulating the phone network so that it appears the call comes in from a Queensland Police line. Impersonating a Government department the criminals then tell you that there’s an outstanding fine or fee. It becomes shady when they request you pay the fine or fee in gift cards. If you think you’ve fallen victim to a similar scam call Police immediately.
