Is 02 8358 5645 a Scam Phone Call.
I received a call from 0283585645 and the call went like this:
Them: Have you been in a Card Accident this year?
Them: Has anyone else in your family been in a Card Accident this year?
Them: I’m sorry
Me: What are you sorry for?
Them: Hung up
I have heard the term accident chasers before, and that seems to fit the bill.
Ambulance Chasers: A common term for legal services who go to extreme lengths to advertise their services directly to individuals after an accident are known as “ambulance chasers.”
A report in a UK Newspaper in 2016 quoted: “One in five people receives an unsolicited, nuisance call every day in a practice fuelled by “ambulance-chasing lawyers,” a report has warned.” www.telegraph.co.uk
But, are some of these actually pure scams, where the people chasing just want pre-payment for something and never deliver?
