Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

Fair Trad­ing com­mis­sioner Rod Stowe (pic­tured) has warned res­i­dents about scam call­ers claim­ing to be from the Aus­tralian Tax­a­tion Of­fice. The call­ers ac­cuse the res­i­dents of tax debts and some­times threaten them with ar­rest. Mr Stowe said the calls were tar­geted at se­niors. A state­ment from Fair Trad­ing said the ATO did not make cold calls about debts.
