Life & Technology – 2GB 09th May, 2020

On the show we invited Paul Fletcher, Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts, to discuss how they are stopping ATO scam calls. In 2019, there were over 107,00 reports of scams that Australians are getting connecting to the ATO. Australia’s telcos joined together with the ATO and Australia Communications and Media Authority are working hand in hand to put a stop to this. Listen to the interview podcast here

Always be vigilant and when in doubt, better to call the ATO office to clarify.

We also invited Matt Williams, Managing Director, Marketing, Products and Revenue from Optus, on to the show. Matt discussed the recent research Optus ran on Aussie parents’ concerns about their children’s internet safety. Visit the Optus website here for more information.
