Scammers said they were calling in regards to a recent accident, when I questioned them, they hung up. Received a missed call from this number and did a search on this number. Thanks guys for sharing your experience SCAM - female with Indian accent asking about a recent car accident. I told her that I was blind and when I drive I do hit a lot of sh*t but I never stop. Unfortunately I couldn't keep it together as I cracked myself up. She hung up :-) Caller: 0488 863 266
These people have rung and rung me (I haven’t answered) but after googling the number I was keen to answer so I “play at their game!” Oh what fun I had 😁 I actually got put through to the “senior supervisor” because I answered yes to having an accident and that I had severe leg injuries.... he then could not answer my questions back to him on what company they were and how they got my number.. He said they are a Sydney Legal Assist company trying to help me get my compensation!
So I said I’m not from Sydney he said that they cover Perth , Queensland, Melbourne & Adelaide. I said well I am actually from Hobart (I’m not really) He said Oh we also cover Hobart too... I told him I can no longer walk and would be seeking millions he said we can definitely help you with that hahaha omg! Every question I had he had no answer for so he actually said “I’m sorry I don’t think we can assist you, goodbye”
But I really wanted to do business with you and give you all my personal information so you could exploit my details ..... bloody idiot!
Caller: Some Indian guy.
Said it wasn't a scam. It was real. You were in an accident that was your fault it came from our legal section. When I asked for dates and times and a contact he got all surly. My response was- I'm sick of these bogus cold calls. You can hang up now or if you peruse this and I know it is fictitious I will have my own team investigate you, and they are very thorough.
He said i might have the wrong number and quickly hung up.
I'm so over this practice, especially when they try and take advantage of others.
Scam caller from India. Claiming to be "Legal Assist", and to help you out in a car accident you have had in the last two years. I kept questioning them because I picked it as a scam. They ended up hanging up when I asked for office details, ABN, etc. I let it go through to message bank and no message was left. Then I checked with this site. Thank you people. Caller: 0488 863 266
Legal Assist. I told him I knew this was a scam and their number is all over the internet on scam call sites
Caller: Indian Guy
Thanks everyone for posting about this SCAM! I can't believe they now use a mobile number to call so you pick uo the phone. Said he was from LEGAL ASSIST and that he is in SYDNEY (yeah right...) and that I had had an accident and he can help me, with workplace injury & car accident. I questioned him on who told him to phone me and where did he get my mobile number from but made sure I DID NOT say the word YES as I had heard previously that these scammers record your conversation and then cut & paste bits and have your voice with the word YES which they can use. Not sure so was on the cautious side. Anyways...I hung up on him, am so over so many of these calls I receive on my mobile. Now I have blocked his number on my IPhone and when i look back in my call history, these are the calls I've been receiving all week & when my daughter answers the phone because I'm driving he has hung up on her. Bloddy scammers. The government need to crack down on these callers, its not acceptable. They need to be shut down.

Yep, Someone called and said that had a notification that I had an accident in the last 2 years due to someone else fault. which i haven't and when i told them they have the wrong person they hung up.
I have had this call several times. Last time was this afternoon. I told him I had been in an accident that morning and had been decapitated.
The rest of my body had been squashed by a runaway road roller. I said "All that is left of me is my head" and that I might be dead.
I asked him if he was calling from Heaven or Hell.
I guess that was too much for him. He hung up one me.....rude bastard!!!
Literally have got a call from this number every second day I don’t Answer unknown calls but I look them up glad I did
Number = blocked xx
Answered to have the usual beeps and cut off. Typical telemarketer and call center tactics to see if it's a valid phone number and that someone answers. I can't wait to chat to another lot of these Indian Bastards to tell them where to stick it.
Well done to the Australia authorities to keep allowing this to happen, you are bloody legends! You are about as useful as the telemarketers, call centers and scammers themselves.
I too was contacted by this number with vague details about an accident I was in sometime in the last 2 year. They have update their information now and they said that a friend or family member had sent them my information out of concern. As soon as I said this call is being monitored for training and legal purposes they said they would remove my contact details from their call list. As this is the 4th call I have received about this from 4 different numbers I am not holding my breath.
I rang the number back and the automated recording was garbled, but something about advice management. Caller: Legal Assist
They called me and i was concerned how they got my number - they said through an accident survey? I am not one to complete any surveys so this was very odd and fishy. He was quick to end the call when I pressed him further about how he got my number.
He directed me to the website which has terrible grammar - looks dodgy.
Said she was calling from Legal Aid and asked if I had been in a motor vehicle accident in the last 2 years. When I asked her where she got my phone number from she said it was from a 'local authorised insurer'. When I asked her the name of the insurer she said she couldn't tell me because it was confidential. I told her I was on the Do Not Call list and asked her not to call me again.

Indian bloke gave me the typical ‘someone at your address has been in an accident’ etc etc
I made him work for it and requested a sh*t load of info... asked for an ABN to his business and he literally yelled to his team and said ‘he is asking for an ABN what do I do?!’
Said to him ‘oh so you’re not legit your just trying to scam me’
He hung up... have some fun with them. Waste their time 👌
Had 3 missed calls from this random in the past week, luckily I saw this ! Caller: "Legal Assist"
Scam caller! Asked if I had an accident in the last two years, I said to lady I smashed into her car and she immediately hung up.
