lIDYTold me I was being contacted because my solicitor told them I had had a ca accident, which is absolute garbage. ThIS NUMBER HAS NOW JOINED MY BLOCKED MOBILE LIST WITH 'SHOULD I ANSWER' A FREE APP IN GOOGLE PLAY STORE.
Said that they'd been advised that I'd been involved in an accident that wasn't my fault. I said no, could they repeat who they were, they hung up. I tried phoning back to see if there was a business answer, but only a strange tone heard. How the devil did they get my number?!
Bob HindleRang about the recent accident I had (I haven't had an accident) so I decided to have some fun with them and told them I was going to get the police report and my insurance details then put them on hold, I put the phone down and waited until I heard them shouting down the phone to see I was still here, I told them the policeman dealing with the accident had arrived whilst I was looking for my details and asked if they would like to talk to him, they hung up.
The people who call, do they honestly think we are really that stupid? I went along with it as I knew it was a scam. I asked him how did he know I had a been in accident, he replied National Accident Database. I asked him to verify the vehicle I was driving, he couldn't. How did he get my number, he couldn't say? In the end, told him he was wasting his time and ended phone call. 01213528717 is now a BLOCKED number on my mobile!
Well this is another if those fishing "we hear your car was involved in an accident" calls... This is about the 4th from various numbers to my mobile...which would have zero connection to my car details. Tell them to sod off!
