10 Aug 09 Minister gives warning on doorknock scam
In a media release issued on 9 August 2009, the Assistant Treasurer, Senator Nick Sherry, warned Australians of a suspected door-to-door scam by people claiming to be consultants from the ATO. The bogus consultants ask people to sign up to a supposed Government program promising financial incentives, including a reduction in taxes.
"The offer is a fraud - the ATO does not participate in these types of unsolicited activities," said the Assistant Treasurer.
