According to the July 2019 ATO impersonation scam report:

  • 6,179 online scam reports were received in the first month of their new online reporting form going live;
  • 6,645 phone scam reports were officially recorded, and 465 phishing scam emails were reported to reportemailfraud@ato.gov.au;
  • 520 taxpayers provided scammers with their personal identifying information including date of birth, tax file number, driver's licence number and notice of assessment details; and
  • $197,057 was reported as being paid to scammers, mostly by iTunes and Google Play.

Unbelievably, scammers are still successfully bilking Australians out of tens of thousands of dollars, as a recent ATO scam report shows.
