Calls and hangs up Scam , trying to make money off 3rd party insurance from motor vehicle accidents. Recently getting this calls every day, even though I have blocked the number.
I got a call today, didnt bother answering, only answer numbers I know. Looked it up here and glad i didnt answer, thanks Grubs number blocked!!! person knows my name. says u entered a competition online which i didnt. have now block this number as well. Got a phone call re guarding a motor vehicle accident I told them they were trying to scam me and f off then got a phone call on these two other numbers (02) 9099 5654 from Sydney NSW and also (07) 3231 4600 from Brisbane QLD all three numbers when I answered them I had said hello three time before I got a reply then I just hung up. This guy rang today with details about an accident my daughter was involved in. He had my number and my daughters name. My insurance company claims they never release personal information. he hung up when I questioned him how he got my number. very worrying. Second call I have had today from these scammers - the scary thing is they were asking for my son, who is 10......Think it was the same guy who called from both numbers. Second time he was really rude - but then I wasn't nice either. English guy with a Welsh sounding accent - I just hung up anyway, wasn't even remotely interested in what he had to say. Have blocked the number. Yeh Mark from NRMA ? Regarding minor accident . SCAM annoying never gives up and still rings even when blocked I am hard of hearing and could not make out what the gentleman was saying.. when I asked him to wait while I put the mobile phone on "speaker phone" he hung up... I believed he did mention "Insurance".. but that's all I could make up - he is persistent; this must be his 3rd call. Attempts to return his call go to an answer phone message and eventually to a "mailbox full" message. (All just like many reports from others above) How do we stop this gross invasion of privacy?? Tried to call back this number and said that it wasn't available. Have had one call a day from this number (03) 9008 4231) for the last week. I will not answer - now I know it's a scam - "Malcolm", insurance scam involving fake accident. Just had this number call me for the 100th time but it's the first time I've answered. An English bloke calling regarding a car accident I had. Told him I've never had a car accident in my life and he asked if I was on a shared insurance policy, I said yes but that person has never had an accident either and he proceeded to mumble something about "oh it could've just been a chip in the windscreen or something like that" and then told me he would remove me from their system. When I tried to ask about where he got my number from he hung up on me. Total scam!!! Can police get involved receive 12 calls a day block it then a new number starts ! FFS Has called me daily for the last few months - a british man asking if i've been in a car crash. When i say no, they hang up. Incredibly frustrating. calls frequently. never leaves msg

Correction on my last note. HSBC had cancelled my card due to their mistake, so I'm pretty sure...
