Calling about a car accident I've had in the last 2 years. I don't drive.
Spammer. Beware !!!
Unsolicited automated call about 'this accident in which you were innocent'.
Called me three times. Ambulance chaser. They had my number with reference to my mum's insurance claim and asked to speak to her. When I said that I wasn't her and told them to take my number off their list, they told me to tell her that her insurance policy was going to be cancelled! What a load of rubbish. When I argued that they wouldn't do that, the guy called me an idiot and put the phone down. Lovely! On no account should you believe anything they say!
Have now had about 8 calls from this number but as soon as they know they are talking to me, when it was my wife involved in the accident, they ring off. If they speak to my wife they try to get her to make, what would be a fraudulent claim for "whiplash" injuries. Even saying that she just needs to give them the nod to go ahead and there will be £2000-£3000 in it for her. It's disgraceful, and needs to be shut down!!
This company has called us at least 4 times this week and on numerous occasions previously.
they assume you have had an accident and keep pestering me. they don't take f... off for an answer
