    A recent [today] email I received from http://www.cyber.gov.au/:

    Probably not an issue for members here, but it doesn't hurt to be aware. ;)

    I have personally received a call a couple of days ago from a robot claiming there was a problem with my tax file number and if I didn't press one on my phone, or ring their number I would be arrested.

    FYI.
