BEWARE - Australian Taxation Office - ATO's scam being hit widely

Use common sense and also check the sender details carefully before responding to any emails
I just received this scam email. Check the sender email address, and secondly ATO will never send you such email asking to file something online.

I have removed the links, this scam will redirect you to another website whether it will ask you to provide credit card details so they can charge the required amount. Be Careful !!!
