Another ambulance chaser
Got a call this morning from this number. Caller introduced himself as being from National Accident Service. Just another one of those companies fishing for past accidents to try and make a claim in your name. Gets old...

Just got a call from this number (National Accident Service) about a car accident that never happend. He (Zack) wanted to release the compesation payment to me for my accident claim, they new my address and postal code.
I could see they were fishing for information - I told them nothing.
Not sure what would have happend if i had continued - Would they have asked for my bank details to transfer the money over ?

I also received a call
The guy Zain stating he is trying to re open an old claim so i can receive £15,000. I explained i'v not had an accident and have never claimed so how did he obtain my number. He was asking for personal information which i refused to give. I think its a Fraudulent Company fishing for details.

Same here but I don't even drive a car, so it's definitely bogus.

Well done for posting your warning for others to read.

Scam
My in-laws received a call saying there had been an accident about 3 years ago, he was fishing for details, he had the address and wanted to discuss the accident but when we asked him to put it in writing he hung up - what does this tell you, it is a total scam and needs to be reported.

Scam scam scam be very aware
I also received a cold call from an Asian guy suggesting I had a car accident last year.

When I told him that I don't even have a car, let alone having a car accident he hung-up.

Be very aware of this tel No.

Never reveal any personal details, tel nos, or bank details.

Cold call
A lady with a very strong Indian accent called my home phone this morning, asking for me. She said she was calling from the UK Claims Department, then went on to speak very quickly, obviously reading from a script.

I couldn't understand her, so I asked her to speak more slowly. She started again, saying she was calling from the UK Claims Department, and still speaking too quickly for me to understand her, with such a strong accent.

I asked her which company she worked for, and her reply was the UK Claims Department. Then she continued, still reading from the script.

I asked again which company she worked for, with the same result, so I hung up.

cold call
just had a call from an asian guy, asking if had an accident about 2 years ago, when i said i hadn't he asked if anyone else in the house had had an accident, somebody going into the back of them. I asked who he was he said he was from Victoria Solicitors in Manchester, I have looked online, but there doesn't seem to be one. He asked for my daughters phone no. which I didn't give, I said I would speak to her to see if she knew anything about an accident. He said to ask for him when she phoned him back, guess what he said his name was MR JAMES ARCHER, very unlikely somebody with a strong asian accent is going to have a name like that.Like everyone else says sounds like a scam. By the way he said there was a compensation pay out of £4800 waiting just needed confirmation of details. Funny how money would be waiting to be paid out, without even filling a claims form out.

still at it
I was told either I or a family member had had an accident and they had the details from "the road traffic accident bureau- part of the UK government."
That organisation doesn't exist. I haven't had a road accident. The whole thing is a scam. When challenged, they rang off.

Feel like an idiot...
Luckily I did not give anything away, but I should have realised it was a scam a lot earlier. I was called by a man, supposedly named Jason Reedes, however he had a strong Indian accent! I asked for any kind of proof of legitimacy numerous times, but they kept making excuses and often changed the subject. BE AWARE, IT IS A COMPLETE SCAM! HANG UP STRAIGHT AWAY!!!!

Also received a call 17:30 was told my address and name and a Asian speaking man calling himself 'SHADY'asked me to confirm this. I was having none of it and asked who is speaking...he said he was calling about a car accident in my street and said he was from Goodwin Solicitors. I then asked how did you get my number , to which he said ok madam goodbye and the line went dead. I was infuriated and called the number back. It rang for 5 mins no one answered. I rang again, this time an Asian speaking man answered without giving a company name. When I asked what company he works for he became agitated and said goodbye madam and hung up once again. I called again, still not satisfied this time another Asian speaking man answered, I asked again 'What is your company name'? he said 'Accident helpline' I asked where did you obtain my number, he said do not worry madam and hung up! THE INFO ON THIS PAGE SHOULD BE REPORTED TO THE AUTHORITIES IMO.

Scam
Had 2 calls in one week from these scam merchants, one male, one female, both very fast talkers and heavy asian accents. Hard to understand. It soon became clear they were reading from a script, obviously a scam. Told them to go away (or something like that -) ).

Scum scam
Had a call from VICTORIA SOLICITORS in Manchester, JIM ARCHER asked about the car accident I'd had, but he didn't know any details and was trying to get me to tell him (which I did not) He kept saying 'someone' at RTA had given him my number and he was going to get me personal compensation. Since I had great difficulty understanding his foreign accent, I passed him over to my husband, 'Jim' then thought it was my husband who had an accident , Eventually 'Jim' passed him on to his supervisory manager SAM PETERSON - is this usual for solicitors -who .promised to send details in the post, How are they STILL doing this , I have given all their details to my SolicItor, so Jim and 'Sam' might get a surprise BEWARE.

probably a scan
I got a call from this number claiming to be from "Accident helpline" - a "semi-government department" quoting web site www.achl.co.uk which is real but probably passing himself off as that. I asked for a number to call back on and was given 0800 999 0777. I'm not calling back :)

frightened old lady
I played the frightened old lady in reply to this scam, ie O dear, I hope it is not Stan, O I am so worried, I knew he should not drive, is he in hospital? - is he dead?, O what shall I do? Found I could keep this up a long time, ignoring attempts at reply. I let off a lot of steam and felt better! Incidentally, he said he was not a private solicitor but from the government and there would be no charge, he got the accident info from cameras.

another scam
just been called by this number by an Indian woman, she asked me about a motor claim I have had in the last 3 years, when I said I hadn't she asked about my wife (I'm single) when I asked her if she would like an accident she said " do you know what, just go to hell". perhaps we should all tell them that

Thank god I'm not going crazy!
Had a phone call claiming to be from some solicitors, acting on the behalf of road traffic bureau, about an accident that happened in the last few years, to which I said I haven't had an accident that wasn't already sorted out and put the phone down. 5 minutes later I had the same thing, so I thought I better listen, until he said that it was for £5000(!) so I shouted at him, told him it was BS and not to phone me again! I then decided to phone the local police station just to see if they knew about it, they didn't and they also didn't seem to care very much!

Road Traffic Bureau
Had several calls from "The Legal Team" re:genuine accident, was suspicious so gave no details. Few days later had similar call from unnamed company with promise of £2.7k payment set aside despite no injuries, gave no info. Later same day had call from Road Traffic Bureau on behalf of solicitors promising to stop all calls by dealing with the "claim", he got irritated when asked to send details in post and admitted I could not ring him back - smells of a phishing scam.
