Text Message Accident Scam
A few minutes ago I got a text on my mobile from +447849031791 which said.
You may be entitled to 6000 pounds compensation for the Accident you had. To claim for free reply with YES to this msg. To opt out text stop. HBXA
As I haven’t had an accident, it’s either a cyber ambulance chaser or a scam. Take your pick!
I will not reply.
I did search the Internet with Google and found a useful site called WhoCallsMe. They had several copies of the same message registered on their site.
Note – I put quotes around “You may be entitled to 6000 pounds compensation for the Accident you had” to do the search.
This isn’t the first time I’ve come across these sort of people. A few months ago to get one off the phone, I had to use the F-word many times and put the phone down on him at least six times.
