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? 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! I am taking on the strategy of not answering my phone and then do the *10# to get the incoming number. If I know it, I immediately ring the person back. This number was unknown and this site helped.
I have heard that on these computer scam rings, if no answer on picking up your phone, to immediately start pressing all sorts of numbers on your phone as this confuses their computerized system not recognizing the number input and rejects it off its list.
Criminal Scammers on the loose in Australia! Another hang up when i answer. oh look they're ringing again now. 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! Annoying!! Have rung our phone at exactly the same time very early every day 6.50am for weeks!! When I am in bed!! By the time I stagger to the phone...they have generally have given up on me! Now they are calling at 11.40am. We have a silent number too, but I understand it is just a computer that dials random numbers and when it connects they get lucky!! We are on the 'No Call Database' but this only works with companies in Australia making it an offence to call someone who is listed on this database ....Cranks/ Overseas calls do not adhere to this ...so I guess it will continue... I think I will pretend I am the one who had a no fault accident, and see how much of their time I can waste! Just got this call at work. Same lame line as others here have been told. I told the guy that unless he told me something credible I wouldn't give him any information. He hung up. We get them here in Albany WA, business address and they ring each of our phone numbers. So glad I found this site, I thought it may have been scammers. He asked me if I or anyone else in my family had been in a car accident, when I said no, they asked me if I was sure....... Same as above. Rang, picked it up and they hung up. So annoying! Caller claimed wanted to talk about accident I had recently. (Advised that I haven't had an accident!!) Children's voices in background. Indian or Pakistani accent. A scam call! This number has become a nuisance claiming that someone at our number has been admitted to accident and emergency. It is a Sydney number and we live in Perth. The number is (02) 8091 4668. Oh! No one in our family drives a motor car.
All of our numbers are on the Government do not call list - Ho Ho Ho! Totally meaningless. Like just about everything this government does, it is all PR spin.
Scam. Female who was polite saying that there has been an accident.
