Ig­nor­ing one im­por­tant de­tail

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - Mr J E Kirby, Stoke New­ing­ton

I found the let­ter from Jeff Ford from Sal­is­bury in­ter­est­ing ( CCW, 22 March). An­other scam that seems to be do­ing the rounds on a fairly reg­u­lar ba­sis is to re­ceive a phone call, usu­ally on your land­line, from some­body pur­port­ing to be able to help you re­gard­ing an al­leged road ac­ci­dent.

I have had sev­eral of these and usu­ally when I’ve tried to find the num­ber, it comes back as a with­held.

Sev­eral times I have asked for de­tails of the al­leged ac­ci­dent, such as make, reg­is­tra­tion, time and lo­ca­tion of the al­leged ac­ci­dent, and also how they ob­tained my num­ber, as I am not listed in the phone book. Last time they said that the Mo­tor In­sur­ance Bureau had given them my de­tails and would not ac­cept my ex­pla­na­tion that for at least five years I had not owned or driven a mo­tor ve­hi­cle of any de­scrip­tion.
