Phone scam data » Car Crash


A call from an unknown number enquiring if you have been in a car accident? This could be from a legit insurance company just trying to gain clients, or a scammer looking to make some fast cash.

The car accident scammers will call asking if you have been in an accident in the past few years, broadening their chance of someone saying yes. If you reply that you have, they will tell you that you have unclaimed compensation and they will start asking for your personal details.

The goal of these scammers is to find out your information and sell the details for money. If you have been in an accident, but are unsure if the call is legit, you should hang up the phone and do some research to find out if they are legitimate. The best option though is to call your insurance company and deal directly with them.
