Government warns of malicious myGov scammers

The Government urge Australians to be vigilant to scammers targeting ATO log in details to commit tax fraud.

The ATO has received a large number of reports of scammers using fake myGov sites to steal myGov sign in details that can be used to commit tax and refund fraud in other people's names. These criminals will often use text message or email to lure people into clicking a link using phrases such as 'You are due to receive an ATO Direct refund' or ‘You have a new message in your myGov inbox – click here to view’.

To be clear – the ATO or myGov will never send an email or text message with a link to sign in to myGov.

For more information you can refer to the media release from the Government.

In light of this announcement, we strongly encourage you to act vigilantly when clicking links in emails or through sms.
