These guys have rung me many times, first time was from a mobile number. Now this number. New it was a scam straight from get go. Abused the $%&# out of the thief on other end of the phone. She said she was reporting to police... Lol... Woman, English accent asked for me by name - my first initial & surname. From 'First Response' and said the call was in relation to having a car accident in the last 12 months. when I laughed & said I hadn't, she apologised & said it must be an error on their end. I asked where she had gotten my number from & she said their database. She also said she would remove it. Since reading all the comments here I see it is a scam. Let's see if they dare to ring again. First Response Team - advising me I had recently been in an accident. I think I would know if I had and would have contacted my own insurer!
I have had a similar call from a mobile number as well.
Scamming I got 8 calls and my partner has had 3. I told him to talk to my lawyer. My mobile and all my contact numbers are on Do Not Call register ... I want these people shut down, fined and jailed ... fine not to be less than $10,000,000 personal for each person involved plus $200,000,000 for whoever set them up! I got a call today i reported it to scam watch i suggest others do as this scam seems like it has been going on for years using the same number Theyve called me again, time to block First Response team. Some insurance dodgey group.. they just hung up comments were helpful. I didn't answer when they called. I just checked the number on this site. Second type of phone call - I had a smiliar call asking me coincidentally about someone having bummped into my car last year. I had made an insurance claim - will report to ombudsman or ACC. SCAM!! Tried telling me I had a motor vehicle accident and I owed money to a particular 3rd party. Told me was error in system when I said no. I've reported it to the police I just had them call called back from a private number and they said that i had had an accident in the last 12 months which i have no had....so i dont know where they got my number from or what they are referring to. They call with all sorts of different numbers and i am sure its a scami fell like telling them i have had an accident to see what they say! Yeah had a sydney no call me got upset when i called them ambulance chasers is a total scam. I have received 2 of these calls in the past week. Coincidentally after I lodged a claim for storm damage on my car with NRMA. It seems to me that somehow these people are getting information from insurance companies when you lodge a claim. It is a serious breach of trust and I have lodged a complaint with the ACCC. just had two calls from these scammers. beware!!!!! I just had this call too, when i advised that i hadn't had an accident they apologised and said they would take me off of their calling list, are they searching to see if the numbers are connected ? Phoned and said if I had car accident a couple of months ago is that correct i said no,he said oh that's good thank you for your time and hanged up . Guy with english accent.he said he was from (first response) SCAM!! look out Do not bother :( scammers The man called my moblie saying I had a car accident last year and I told him that I had no car accident last year! He's scamming! He wanted "money" don't trust him!
