claiming I was involved in a car accident in the last 12 months I have had 3 calls from this number (now blocked) - didn't even get to have a conversation as call always terminates promptly on answering. Why should we have to block these numbers? Why can't something be done about stopping this type of behaviour? It's not good enough. This number calls nearly 10 times a week. I have now blocked it. Caller: Accident scam
Don't engage with these people and most definitely don'y use the word "yes" or answer in the affirmative:
When you respond with "yes" they immediately hang up but not before recording your voice.
They then use the recording to authorise payments from your bank or to hack into your accounts using voice recognition.
Queensland Police Service is warning that if scammers already have personal details - such as your phone number and address - a simple 'yes' is all they need to start stealing your money.

This number is a scam caller claiming I was in a car accident. I said no and when I told them to remove my number from their database, they hung up on me. So sick of these calls. Calling from a Sandgate Qld area code
This number has called my mobile for the last 3 weeks i never answer my phone so i decided to look it up today and i found this site-glad i didn't call back thanks for the info everyone. def scam artists Didn't answer the call as my smart phone identified it as potential scam. Googled the number which lead me to this page. After reading all the complaints remembered my friend said he had a call from the same scammers recently asking if he'd been in an accident. I am on the don't call register but a lot of good its done as I am still getting these scam phone calls. I never answer numbers I don't know and I'm glad my phone recognises if its a scam. I made a complaint through the government scam watch site.
