Hi @shelleyscadding

 

We won't cancel your TFN.

We have information on our website to help you verify if the call was genuine.

 

If we suspect misuse of your TFN, our team will direct you to speak with our Client Identity Support Centre to keep your account secure and make sure only you can access your account.

Call the ATO and find out ifit is true and how to re-activate it.
