Heads up everyone! Details below on what to watch out for - don't be fooled by this type of fraud.❗ SCAM ALERT - FAKE MYGOV SMS AND EMAILS ❗
The Australian Taxation Office says it’s receiving increasing reports of several myGov-related SMS and email scams.
These scams look like they have come from a myGov or ATO email address. They also might appear in your legitimate ATO or myGov SMS message thread.
The image below is one example of an SMS scam currently circulating. DO NOT click any links and don’t provide the information requested.
ATO says: “You will get email or SMS notifications from myGov whenever there are new messages in your myGov Inbox.”
“However, these messages will never include a link to log on to your myGov account. Always access our online services directly via one of the following:
👉the ATO app.
All online management of your personal tax affairs should be done in ATO online services, accessed through your genuine myGov account. Any communications containing your personal information, such as your tax file number (TFN), will be sent to your myGov inbox, not your email account.”
You can make accessing your myGov account more secure by opting to receive a security code via SMS. It’s a quick and secure way to sign in to access ATO online services.
If you receive an SMS or email from the ATO that you think is fraudulent, report it by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you receive an SMS or email that looks like it’s from myGov but it contains a link or appears suspicious, email email@example.com. If you have clicked on a link or provided your personal information, contact Services Australia on 1800 941 126. ... See MoreSee Less

'Buy now, pay later' schemes make borrowing money very easy. They seem convenient and harmless but can result in hefty late fees and the costs can begin to add up quickly.
