scammer representing law firm seeking person involved in an accident 2 years ago. No such accident occurred. Tried calling number back but get busy tone. These are Indian/Pakistani scammers claiming to be from accident investigation wanting to talk about your car accident and claim. I don't know why I bother answering calls that aren't in my contacts any more.
Actually, I do, I run a business and don't want to miss potential work.
These people should burn.
I just yelled very loudly in the phone YOU ARE A LIAR so I am glad it is a LAWYER SCAM Why aren't these nuisances prosecuted? 12 Feb 2017 @ 11.30am: I just received a phone call from an Indian sounding woman by the name of 'Aleena'. She stated she received notification that someone in my household had been involved in a motor vehicle accident. She also stated she had the plate number (which i thought was odd!) I asked her what the plate number was and she stated she doesn't know....i started to challenge her, "but you just advised me you DID have the plate number!" she said, "NO, No Miss (surname), i meant i have your phone number and your address - which is *********, is that correct Miss (surname.) I didn't confirm or deny asking, "Sorry, which company are you working for?" She replied, "For AC&H Lawyers in Sydney....we are a legal company. We have been notified from the Road Department (!!) that someone ran into the back of your car. Is this correct?" I then challenged, "I'm aware and i guess i should make you aware, there is NO AC&H Lawyers in Sydney and what you're doing is a scam - the Federal and State Police advise the general public all the time about your scams....." No sooner had i said that, she hung up! They rang through twice to my work place and hung when the phone was answered. They ring our switchboard number one day a week at random times (approx 40-50 times in a row) and usually hang up when we answer. We did have one incident where they claimed someone had had an accident. We don't answer now. I also received a call from this number this morning asking if a member of this household had been in motor vehicle accident in last 2 years. I said no several times, he then called me a liar! Surprisingly then he apologised and quickly hung up before i had a chance to hang up on him! I would like to know how he got our number as it's private/unlisted! Indian said he was from accident department, I told him that if I catch him it won't be an accident. He hung up. I just copped her the Indian chick to I kept asking her where are you from - she kept saying ACH Lawyers - I told her she should be ashamed of herself trying to rip people off -get lost and don't ring here ever again!! kept asking me if I have ever had a car lately???? scam scam. they hung up when I started asking for their address. That's twice this week. Another one going around claiming to be from Taxation I just had them call me. Claimed they were from ACH Lawyers 231 Adelaide Terrace Perth WA. except the woman pronounced it "Port" She also gave me the number (08) 9467 4216 which has one too many digits.
Hi JulieAnne - got the same today! I asked them to speak to MY lawyers and they hung up! 'Michael Liz' claimed to represent ACH Lawyers 'accident investigation department'. He phoned me today. The Queens Birthday. A public holiday. What lawyer works on a public holiday. I can't get my lawyer to work even on a normal Saturday.
What lawyers ever uses the phone? Mine writes letters and charges me heaps for each.
I am a Process Server. If I could find Mr Liz I would wallop a claim on him.
These people just keep calling. Is there someone we can report them to? I can't get them to stop calling. Scam firm looking to see if you have had an accident - just shout at them and they hang up Rang and said his name was Michael and he was just asking about the accident I had 12 months ago.
As I have never had an accident I asked where did he get this information from. His answer was ACH Lawyers I asked if he could give me their phone number and he hung up
two calls from them today, hung up when I explained I was a lawyer. What is the scam though?
they have been harassing me for ages. they have changed phone numbers 3 times... they used to be a private number. Definitely a scam.
