WARNING! Just received an email today (7/8/13) from the ATO about being entitled to receiving an amount of $7830 AUD refund. found this odd as have not done a tax return yet (and didn’t even earn that much!) on talking to the ATO this is a SCAM! it asks you to click a link or in my case download a zipped folder. ATO have advised they do not send emails to update you on your refund or ask for credit card numbers, that is all done via post. the email it was sent from was firstname.lastname@example.org Sorry but I would hate to hear/see anyone get caught out on this one. I don’t know about others but I wait all year for this refund!
