Hi @SX

 

Good question, but....

 

What may be worth considering here is that call 'spoofing' and VOIP tricks used regularly by scammers will make a call look like it's coming from another (sometimes legitimate)  number. 

 

In other words, scammers hijack or imitate phone numbers, either to imitate a person, business or department to get money or information. If the ATO phone you there's generally no caller ID.

 

If you’re ever unsure whether a call claiming to be from ATO is authentic, just hang up and phone the number found in this link.
