Traralgon accounting firm customers targeted in tax scam
Telephone scammers are continuing to target Gippsland people with claims they're calling from the Tax Office or Federal Police.
Sharon Bonner from Bonner Accounting in Traralgon said some of their clients have been highly distressed after receiving threats of arrest.
"People professing they are from the tax office having been ringing people to say they have an outstanding account," Ms Bonner said.
"They then ask them for bank details. People must be very aware that the ATO would never ever ask for bank details."
