There has been an increase in scam calls across the Snowy Mountains recently.

The Australian Taxation Office is warning residents to be aware of fraudsters intimidating people into paying a fake tax debt over the phone.

The scam attempts to force people to pay over the phone by threatening arrest if they don’t comply.

The ATO is urging people to protect their personal details.

Generally the ATO would send an SMS or letter to remind you that a payment was due.

If people receive a call from the ATO and are concerned about providing their personal information over the phone, they should ask for the caller’s name and phone them back through the ATO on 1800 008 540.

People should also contact the ATO via this number if they think they may have fallen victim to a phone scam.
