There has been a warning put out by the Australia Tax Office that scammers are out there impersonating their officers, demanding Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as payment for tax debts.

It is a scam that piggybacks off a real issue across the globe; the actual tax debts that have accrued thanks to cryptocurrency earnings and gains. Australia’s tax office has cracked down more severely on cryptocurrency gains in their latest anti-money laundering legislation.

That is when the dark side of  bitcoin is revealed to the world . Actually it is the dark side of the people who use it in such purposes .
Many scammers and unethical users are onto this mission of getting bitcoin by all wrong means such as fraud or ransom .
But for the countries where it is regulated it is a relief that they get to know about such activities  and are able to control them from occurring in future .

I don't understand people who can believe that. Probably not such a sin to cheat. Maybe it's a joke? I think that such fraud is not a problem. A big problem is created by scammers who kill a good idea of ICO with their actions. This gives rise to raise the issue of regulating the ICO and cryptocurrency markets.

I agree. I mean up to what extent are scammers willing to go to just to fool people for their sole gain? Scammers can really be creative and mischievous. Situations like this just goes to show that they can be whoever they want and gain the credibility they need at an instant just to extort Bitcoin from people. This is why people should be extra careful and vigilant with transacting with other people, may it involve ones bitcoin or other things that has great value. The only thing that can protect us from people like this is if we raise our awareness towards act like this. Before you engage with others, make sure they have sincere intentions and are not scammers.

Scammers may get desperate enough to the point wherein they would go to extreme extents just so that they could get what they want. It may be seem funny that people get victimized of the crazy schemes they come up with but it's the sad reality. These scammers are very resourceful and are able to come up with absurd ways to fool people. They are skillful enough to make it seem like they are legitimate people with a front. It's hard to combat this but we must be cautious all the time. There are many telltale red flags we could look out for so that we may avoid these.

I agree. I really don't like to call them scammers, but criminals. They are really a cancer to the society. They are people who lives to fool and scam others for the sake of their survival. How you gonna call such people? So everyone needs to be cautious here as they criminals are freely roaming looking for the next unsuspecting victims.

They used the talents that God has given them to exploit others. Yeah we should raise awareness and I think its a good moved from the Australian authorities to warn its people because they already embraced bitcoin. Gonna be a cat and mouse game between the police and the criminals. Although it seems that they are always one step ahead, I'm the authorities will catch up with them.
