Police have warned against responding to a scammer claiming to be from the Australian Taxation Office.

Complaints were received by Collie police last week about a scammer using the name Robbie King, who demanded credit card details and payments for alleged outstanding tax debts.

The calls have been made from a Canberra-based number with an 02 prefix.

Police advise the calls should be ignored and reported to Department of Commerce's Scamnet.
