A North Mackay man has endured a seven hour scam call from 9.30am through to 4.30pm on Monday February 4 – resulting in bank accounts being almost totally emptied. The scam caller claimed to be from the Australian Taxation Office and told the man that he owed thousands of dollars in back-payments from 2008 through to 2013. He further threatened the victim that if he did not pay the outstanding amount by 4pm on that same day otherwise two staff members would be attending his home address (which was known to the scam caller) and seize cars, assets and bank accounts belonging to the man. Deeply concerned by these threats, and hoping to avoid any alleged asset seizures, the victim agreed to make the payments. He was instructed to attend a series of local businesses to purchase large quantities of iTunes cards before taking a photograph of the verification codes and forwarding them to the scam caller. After carrying out this task and paying the alleged debt in this fashion the man’s bank accounts were virtually empty. He was then informed that a final payment was required to ensure the two staff members employed to seize his assets were properly paid! In fact, he was offered a discount to ensure this occurred… The man attended his local financial institution in an attempt to borrow money to meet this alleged final payment and staff at the business immediately and correctly identified the matter as a scam and informed the victim. As a result, he suffered no more financial loss. Mackay Police have been reliably informed that phone scams of a similar nature have happened in the last two weeks. If you or someone you know has been impacted by a phone scam in a similar fashion, please report the matter promptly through the Australian Cybercrime Online Reporting Network (ACORN). ... See more
