I just had the same phone call on my work phone, claiming they are from Accident Compensation Australian. As soon as they started asking for my details I thought it was a scam, however I have had an accident in the past two years. just a coincidence. I asked them for their number and told them I would call back when it was convenient to me. The lady was persistent trying to get my contact details I insisted I would call back when I was ready. Same number continues to call our business line, and hangs up when they hear I'm from a business. These people are most likely involved in an identity theft racket. Chances are they are they already have some info about you, but on no account give them any personal information. And make sure your online banking is as secure as possible. If in doubt, hang up. I had a call from the same number. I knew it was a scam as there were no accident in our household. if you are due for a pay out as a result of an accident it is the Insurance Company or your LAWYER that would ring. These jokers just called my work only 2 times, like many others here I played along with them, really want to know how i got into a car accident, i don't even own a car Absolute criminal call! Old car accident scam. I was called saying that someone from my number had a accident coincidence my mum had been in a accident late last year, I went along with it all knowing it was a scam, told them I needed to get all the information from my accountant
I asked for there contact details and the man freely gave it all to me

Yep they are still calliing people today had another call this morning-Indian(?) man, named Sam saying that someone from my phone number had been in an accident in the last 2 years and I might be due a payout! Told him no and asked how e got my number etc etc. Big waste of time - told him not to ring again!!! So tired of getting these calls to our business. SUCH A SCAM. Have told them the last four times they called the "person in the motor vehicle accident" has died from their injuries, to stop calling my number and stop being insensitive sods. Ive had 4 calls from these clowns
im going to ring them at 2am ... advantages of shift work
I just had my 4th call
im going to start ringing the number at 2am while im at work .... advantages of a shift worker
These people are calling me daily. Different numbers too Phoned us twice this morning already and we've had a number of them over the past few weeks talking about a car accident. Tell the where to go as they are a waste of time and energy and something should be done about them. HANG UP ! Last tow weeks have been constantly being harassed with phone call from "Accident Insurance Claim Line" asking if we have been involved in a accident in the last two years. They have rang every phone in the office. Not just once but a number of times. By a different person each time. They must have 10 Justin's working for them. Must say they are all Indians. We are also on the Do Not Call list. I asked for a number to call them back on, didn't want to give me one but got told 999 2777? What a load of BS. As soon as they hear our business and my name they hang up now. When they ring i can hear others in the back ground. They've rung me, twice on the home phone and once on the mobile, same story, this is about an accident in the last couple of years, gave me a contact name of "Max Smith", but when i rang back, didn't give them my name or ask for Max Smith, when i pressed for details of the accident they told me it had happened on the 25th of December last year. Amazing that they could link an accident to me without my name:) More scary is that they have access to telephone numbers which could only come from Police or insurance company report forms. I have had this person call me 4 times now at our work. I know this is a scam. Just to get them to waste their time I made up a story agreeing to the fact I was in an accident! thought I might string them along a bit to waste their time and hopefully it will spare some other unsuspecting person They rang our private number and asked about a car accident in the last 2 years. My wife kept them on the phone going round and round in circles about while they were trying to get information out of her. She then asked to speak to someone else as she couldn't understand them and did the same to them until they got fed up with her!! Quite funny to listen to them getting frustrated Likewise I had a guy with an Indian accent with plenty of background noise calling and stating somebody had been in a car accident... Told them I don't drive and there was no car accident. I am on the do not call register They called claiming to be Accident compensation Australia LTD saying someone at this address had an accident in the last 2 years but no one has, when asked for details of who is making the claim they could not give any details & hung up on me.
So I rang back & they claimed they were not saying any one had an accident & they were just doing a survey.
just spent an hour calling the number back abusing them every time they answered, after a few calls they started to hang phone up every time I called . I'm keeping up the harassment for much longer every time I think of it I'll be calling their number. Maybe they will get the message that you don't harass people trying to scam them.
Join in people randomly call the number & abuse them & report the number to service provider might as well get them on the phone or keep their phone busy at least then they can't call other people / old folk to scam them
