JobKeeper Scam

Back to List


This JobKeeper email scam involves a fake email that appears to come from the ATO, informing the recipients that the tax office is “checking all claims made through the Coronavirus JobKeeper Payments/Backing Business Incentive Scheme”.

The email asks business owners to reply to the email with “clear, high resolution” photos of the front and back of both their driver’s license and Medicare card.

“Don’t provide the information requested, and delete the email straight away,” the ATO advises. “If you receive a message from the ATO asking for your personal information, phone us on 1800 008 540 to make sure it’s legitimate. “You should never give out your personal information unless you’re sure of who you are dealing with.”
