Scam Myths

In the past 12 months, the ATO has identified and taken action against 595 websites impersonating its online services. These fake sites are designed to steal passwords, personal information, and identity documents, such as passports and driver's licences.

Currently, the ATO is seeing many SMS and email scams leading to fake myGov sign-in pages; more than 360 of these scams have been reported to the ATO since April 2022. However there are many different types of tax and super scams happening year-round, not just in the lead-up to Tax Time.
