Dealing with car crash scammers
Be wary of cold calls after a car crash.
Scammers may pretend to represent government, insurers or well-known businesses to gain your trust.
Don’t be pressured.
Remember that a trusted organisation will respect your wishes and won’t harass you.
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Scammers pretend to help you then they sell your personal details to make money. Trusting a scammer with your personal information can put you at risk.
Check if your caller is who they say they are.
Get the organisation’s phone number from an independent source and call them back.
Hang up and report it.
If in doubt, hang up and report them to us.
