In the latest version of the phone scammers pretending to be the ATO, you will be asked to pay a tax debt via iTunes cards.

WA ScamNet has a copy of a similar voice message used in a previous scam.

On 6 May 2016 a 52-year-old Mandurah woman reported to Consumer Protection that she had bought about $7,000 worth of iTunes cards to pay phone scammers.

On 9 May 2016 a Melbourne grandmother told 9NEWS a similar story after losing $5000 on iTunes gift cards.

From time to time the ATO may contact you by phone, but you should be wary of unsolicited phone calls claiming to be from the ATO and offering you a tax refund or aggressively demanding a payment.

Our advice hang up or ignore the message. Do not call these scammers back.

If you are unsure, contact the ATO directly on 1800 008 540.

More information and advice about this scam is available on WA ScamNet.
