Who owns the Telephone Number: 02 4867 1395.
I received a call today from 02 4867 1395, and had the first second or two of silence, so I knew it was a scammer or blind sales call, but decided to stay on the line and answer it, as I wasn’t busy.
It began with them saying they were calling from the Accident and Insurance something or other, accident investigation department, about my recent car accident.
I went along with it for a short while, but then decided to get them to confirm that they had the right details, as the accident was 25 years ago… and is all finalised now..
The call ended at that point…
Its a SCAM…
The following is from an Australian Government website that explains it well, at: https://www.scamnet.wa.gov.au
It is worth checking it out if you are not fully aware of these scams.
Car crash compensation phone scam.
What this scam involves.
As with so many scams, this one starts with a phone call you weren’t expecting.
The caller wants to speak to ‘the person involved in the car accident’ supposedly to help them with their compensation claim.
They may pretend to be from an official-sounding organisation, using names such as ‘Road Accident Helpline’ or ‘Accident Investigation Department’.
It is clear the scammers ring lots of people in the hope of striking lucky and reaching a person who has coincidentally been in a road traffic accident recently.
