The Scammers Shame

“Is your mother proud of you”?    

Sounds like a great line.  Readers of the Melbourne Herald Sun may have seen the campaign by Steve Perkin in retaliation to the telephone scammers.  He wants everybody to respond to a scam caller, because he believes that even scammers would be ashamed if their mother knew how they behaved.

The idea is you attempt to shame the conscience of the scammer and then immediately hang up.

If honesty, integrity and sincerity doesn’t work, then being disrespectful or shaming your mother might is the thrust of the Steve Perkins campaign.  

Remember there are many reasons you use a tax agent and this is further benefit, because you can rely on us acting as intermediary for all your dealings with the Australian Taxation Office.
