Mobile Text Scam – Claim 3750 for the Accident You Had

I received an interesting text in the morning. The text was sent from +447747436026. Following was the message :-

FREEMSG: Our records indicate you may be entitled to 3750 pounds for the accident you had. To claim for free reply with YES to this msg. To opt out text STOP.

Mobile Phone Text Message Scam

Clearly, I haven’t had any accident for years, and I knew the message was a bait. Some scamster was trying to get people to respond. The moment you send a response, you might be hooked into constant messages and charges. According to the message, you’ll have to send a txt message with STOP to get out of this con. In my view, just delete the message.

I post this here so that others might benefit from the knowledge. Imagine, someone who had an accident recently gets this text message? If they were probably expecting a call from their insurance company or accident claims solicitors, they might respond to this text. Even if a tiny percentage of the mobile users respond to this scam, the scamsters would have hit a jackpot!

Never respond to any such text messages, emails, or even phone calls. There is another scam where someone calls you from a number and cuts the call instantly. When you call back, the number is forwarded through a premium rate phone number you will be paying for listening to some rubbish tape playing on the other end.

If anyone’s got similar experiences, please share.

my mother in law and brother in law both received this text message, but when it shows on phone its sender is listed as my brotherIL on my mother IL’s phone.

how have they shown the text as being from someone listed on the receivers phone?

Just received absolutely same text. From number +447748386062. The funniest thing, few days ago I went to health centre regarding pain in ankle and about week ago had minor accident (just a tiny scratch). Coincidence?

I also received this message but did not open it – simply deleted it but perhaps I should have texted STOP?
It really gets my goat that these scammers just keep on and on making money this way.
I get junk emails all the time but delete them if I do not recognise the sender – the old addage – if it seems too good to be true, it usually is tends to be the case. Ignore. delete and bin them, and as they used to say in Hill St Blues – let’s be careful out there!!!!!!

Not sure that sending “STOP” is a wise move. That simply lets the scammer know that your number is active. It is just another part of the same baiting attempt. Best to delete the message with no response

Hi. I’ve been receiving messages with the subject [email protected] for a few months and generally ignoring them. I realise through reading the posts online that it was when I responded to one of them that I started being charged. A couple of days ago I got a message saying “Hope you are enjoying MoneyOffs Mobile! This costs £2.50/week. To cancel just txt the word stop to SMS code 82443. For help pls call 08442903566 SP:WIN age 16+” from message centre +447802000332. None of these three numbers work, but at least by sending me this stupid message I’ve been alerted to the fact that I’ve been being charged for this stuff. My wife is encouraging me to get to the bottom of this and get back the money I’ve been charged in the last few months. Any advice about how to do that would be appreciated. I’ve spoken to my service provider and drawn a blank about how to proceed.

As an individual case, you’ll probably never be able to get your money back. Mobile operators would blame it on you by saying that you were not vigilant. If they manage to track down the scammers, they’ll have some easy exit clauses. Best is to ignore them all.

I just received one about 20 minutes ago and sent “Stop”. Maybe it’s because I’d just got up, or was under the weather, or because I had a msg last week for a health fitness centre clinic and I actually phoned them up twice and told them to take me off their mailing list. Or because o2 now send all their bills this way. I feel so bloody foolish…

the number is +44 7770 498479

It’s made me wonder why my bills have been higher than usual.

In fact, I even got a call in which a surgeon used my first name and was discussing a patient to my voice mail, I phoned back saying he’d got the wrong “bobby” and he seemed surprised and thanked me.

A couple of questions:
1/ Does this mean I’m going to be getting all kinds of spamming?
2/ What can I do about it?
3/ How much will they charge me for this “Stop”…a £1, £5…
4/ Is it advisable to change my phone number?
5/ And why do you guys post the numbers of these crooks?

I’m wondering if I’ve been scammed before….

Hi I have recieved 2 of these this week and I got a few of them a couple of months ago and just deleted them as i’ve never had an accident … the number that text me twice this week was +447765248310 … Im changing my number in december anyway so hopefully I wont get anymore…..

I keep getting bible quotes 2-3 a day for some 4 weeks, i have not resonded to them just deleted them. 447973149518.
Has anyone had this experience, is it a scam or just some religeous zealot who has got the my number by mistake?
Ally

I’ received the same txt’s by 07510800336; 07510820992; 07957427719; 07511435502 for a couple months and just deleded all of them as I’ve read all here. (never reply)
Many thanks

Just received one of these so googled it to check it was a scam, which of course it is.
The number they used to send the message was: 07402272879 and is call FREEMSG.

Beware all!

I just got the same message from +44 7403 150502 (07403 150502). what is spooky is that I WAS involved in a car accident recently and this got me thinking. Rather than replying back, I dialled the number – which of course was not answered but went to voicemail. Left a message for someone to call back (which I don’t think they will).

Here’s another scam number

+44 7401 460977

and the message is:

NHS charges means your family could claim back tens of thousands of pounds spent on care home costs. For details reply CARE now. To Opt out reply STOP

i have just received the same message from+447551368262, i did have an accident so almost replied, but decided to check it out on the internet first, so thanks for the advice and saving me a few bucks.

I get this every couple of months but someone told me it still costs money to delete it. Is there any truth in that? I leave them in my inbox without replying and eventually the phone’s inbox clears them but I still am not sure if I’ve been charged as I haven’t checked my bills:(

I got one from +447548062030 twenty mins ago, going to go along with it and when they contact me again i will throw some F***S into them…..sure that it is not a premium no so will only cost a text, will leave a post letting you all know how i get on, wish me luck!

The Number is +447553034937:
Message is:
FREEMSG: OUR RECORDS INDICATE YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO 3750 POUNDS FOR YOUR ACCIDENT. tO CLAIM FOR FREE REPLY WITH YES TO THIS MSG. tO OPT OUT TEXT STOP.

Thanks to your eye-opener website, I was really sure that it is a scam. Just googled the ‘FREEMSG’ and found your website, which further assured me.
I did have the experience about scams, as one of my boss was scamed in past and he lost about 100 quid for this. Some one called him and said we are the mobile insurance company and you have bought a contract and we need your account details regarding your insurance plan. Unfortunately he did give them the details and he was deprived of 100 quid.
Later when he called the Carphone Warehouse they simply denied and said we didn’t call you and it was a scam.
I wonder how the scammer came to know that he has bought a new contract, and how they got hold of his details.
So I would suggest everybody beware all scammers. Be sure before replying to anything which is doubtful. Especially don’t give you account details on mobile.

4 more no’s to add, +447786208448,+447537402449,+447401849441,+447401727590, passed all details to Orange, my service provider using 7726 (text) to Orange spam dept, all phone providers should have this service, Av a nice day!

Got the exact same message as everyone else. Thanks so much for website! I was sure it was a scam but I figured I would just quickly check to see if there was anything on the net about it before I replied.

Add: 07784275004

Thanks a lot!

Another number for the growing list +447865936434.
I would love to be left in a closed room with these scammers. They would not be able to send any more of these malicious texts. Thanks for the info guys.

Thank god for the internet. I had a car accident four days ago, thought this was suspect.
Exact content as stated, new number to wary of: 07884405772

received a phone call from a guy called Jerry from “UK Accident Help Line”
the number he gave me was 02032877731 with turns out to belong to http://teachingquranonline.net/
They say i’m entitled to £3000 and all i have to do is make up some lies about the accident and fill out a form that will be sent to me in the post. in the mean time, they ask to find out as much information from you as possible.
hardly anyone answers the number, but when someone finally did, i questioned him, the guys abruptly hung up.
beware!

07798979738 and message is “NHS charges means your family could claim back tens of thousands of pounds spent on care home costs. For details reply CARE now. To Opt out reply STOP”

Just got one from +44 (0) 7721656231 with same text, I’m on Orange. I too have had an accident in last few months, but I know it was my own stupid fault ;-)
So aside from kicking myself, there’s no-one to get back at.
Thanks for the info.
Kev

how can i rid myself of freemessages. taking £2.50 a week from my phone. number given is a dead line 08442903566, text 82443. please help!!!!! Sandra

Hi

I received the “FREEMSG entitled to 3750 last night ( 1 Feb ,2011 ) mobile number 07510819520 – I replied STOP so hope I don’t get any more!

Louise

I had a message saying the same thing because I had an accident recently..i replied with what it told me and then i was worried it was a scam..after i sent the message i called the number and noone answered.what do i do now?

Hi, I’ve just received this FREEMSG again, it’s the second one. I don’t want to text STOP as I’m fairly sure it’ll just alert the scammer that my mobile no is in use, but I’m concerned i get charged for these texts?

Text came from +447768463775

Interestingly, I received a very dodgy call recently from someone claiming to represent a legal firm, who said that their records showed that our car had recently been involved in an accident and we could be entitled to claim compensation. She was very insistent that we had had an accident, despite my repeated assurances that we hadn’t, in the end I got quite shirty with her and hung up. I wonder if the texts and call are in any way related?

Thanks for posting this thread, btw, it’s very very useful.

Just had the following text:
FREEMSG: NHS changes means your family could claim back tens of thousands of pounds spent on care home costs. For details reply CARE now. To Opt out reply STOP.
From +44 07775480248
Can’t think how they got my number – I won’t be replying to it!

You can add +44 07526372273 to your list of numbers.

Why don’t the mobile phone companies just block these numbers or is it (once again) a matter of the “human rights” of the rogues involved?

Just got the same message from +447542068126. I had a car accident about 2 months ago so very very glad I check out the internet first. Cheers :-)

I’ve just receved a similar text from +44780026832.

I’ve just received a similar text from +447795212735. Nothing is ever for free but in hard times people could be enticed into scams. If I’d had an accident I might have thought to reply.How did they get my number?

Received exact txt this morning (28/2/11) from 07979206867. I tried to call, using my office phone, as I do not know where the txt came from. It rang and rang and rang beofore going dead. I hope it has not cost my employer.

Same insurance scam message from +447541730815. Is it wise to text STOP or will that just confirm a valid mobile number?

Hi, I’ve just received a similar text (Free Msg; Our records indicate you may be entitled to £3750 for the accident you had. To apply free reply CLAIM to this message. To opt out text STOP).

The phone number used was 07548061601 (received it on March 11th 2011 at 12.40pm).

My mum received one of these earlier today (from 07783792338), and she responded with the “STOP”. Is she going to get a hefty bill for that (she’s on O2)?

Interesting that you say “077 numbers are charged as premium rate numbers by the Three network” – my O2 mobile number starts 077 and is definitely NOT a premium rate number…

@TJ – 077 being charged on the three network might be old news. Not sure if she’ll get a hefty bill. I haven’t sent a reply myself. Would be kind if you could share what happens in the bill. Most cases they’ll charge a £3 or something. It’s like a premium text service.

07597650086 here one i got today with this number

Free Msg; Our records indicate you may be entitled to £3750 for the accident you had. To apply free reply CLAIM to this message. To opt out text STOP

Exact same text from 07548014935. Not had an injury.
I am TPS registered & exdir so it’s probably from outside country, also had similar as UK claims via my landline relentlessly asking for the ‘gentleman of the house’ , another is JR research.

Just receive the following :- “FREE MSG: our records indicate you may be entitled to £3750 for the accident you had. To claim for free reply INJURY to this text. To opt out reply QPTU

Beware folks, definitely a scam – I have not been in an accident but could be if I find the so and so’s who are clearly preying on the weak and vulnerable.

Just had the same from 07526300287. Turned my caller ID off and tried to call – got voicemail.

AAAAAAARGH – I hate things like this.

i had the same msg yesterday and i did not know what that was because me and my husband had a accident 3 years ago and it got me thinking and like another same gay sad when in money crices that is good news so ,i replyed but i never checked the credit and than they called me back 3 times,but now thanks to you gays a know now.

I’ve just had same text today, Free Msg; Our records indicate you may be entitled to £3750 for the accident you had. To apply free reply CLAIM to this message. To opt out text STOP
The number is 07599 659288

TJ, My number also starts with 077, and originally it came from Vodafone. It’s just an ordinary mobile number. I think Kathir needs to check his facts out before making sweeping statement about a number range being premium rate.
By the way, I ported my 077 number to ‘3’ last year. There don’t seem to be any special charges associated with it.
I have received the £3750 text a few times though. I just delete it every time.

; thank you for the information just looked this up after receiving a text this morning stating exactly that same thing, was a great help to me :) ! The number that this message was from was 07500366041!

Horrible people!!

o2 knows what’s going on!. greed, corruption and immoral management…..all this will lead to the fall of o2 mobile network.

SCAM number – 07703577554. They phoned me twice today after i got the “FREEMSG: Our records indicate you may be entitled to 3750 pounds…” text message. They hang up after i told them that i’m going to complain to the trading standard authorities.

Other half got this today! Thankfully we hadn’t done anything until a net search could be made- thanks for this info!

Just had one very similar, message says.

You have still not claimed the compensation for the recent accident you had. If you still wish to claim then reply CLAIM or to opt out text stop

Number is 07526307893

also from 0759123133, I got a phone call on my landline from the scammer, sounded like he was on Mars from the echo on the line

Just got one today.

Received same message from 07770438859. Was at a friends at the weekend and they got same message – glad I was there as they had had an accident and were going to reply!

I just got more or less exactly same text from 07513245366 – couldn’t find the number on the usual searches, but found this post and sounds dame to me.

I replied CLAIM back in order to find out who this was. Few days later (today) I received a phone call from a woman thanking me for replying to the text and wanting to take tsome more details from me. I pretended to be careful of being scammed and if she could confirm the company and website and it belongs to these guys:

Compensation Claims

They are a part of Paragon Ltd. and if you want their website, company name with .co.uk on the end.

I’ve reported them to the ICO and forwarded on all information I have and have even lodged a complaint with the company in question. I did receive a reply back pretending not to know anything and I’ve emailed back asking why the woman thanked me for the text and was ready to take more info from me. Yet to hear anything back.

They’re fishing for hopefuls. So many people on hard times chances are they’ll make a lot of cash on some cases where they can make some money back on a case or two.

And now you can add 07516306894 to your helpful list. Clearly, if they are actually operating from the UK as a business (as Nospam’s reply suggests), then the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) could step in and shut this scam down… assuming the Coalition government hasn’t found a way to axe OFT in their budget cuts, that is.

One follow-up thought though–don’t telephone operators (mobile and landline) recycle phone numbers? Especially if these are pay-as-you-go disposable numbers, then some poor sap is likely to pick up a discarded number on the growing blacklist and get hit with complaints.

I replied “Claim”, waited for them to call me and then asked them to hold while I went to fetch a pen, works a treat they were still waiting 5 minutes later!! If everyone does this they will waste so much time chasing flase claims they will surely go out of business

STOP.

This is SO ANNOYING! We’re getting these calls at least once a week, we’ve told them a million times to stop calling and texting us, and it’s just been going on and on.

list of number’s i’ve received this message from in the last two months. not checked to see if they’re duplicated anywhere else on this page…

Got similar message offering £3850 from +447516307222 on 13/05/2011, asking reply CLAIM or STOP. Add the number in the list. 

Got the same message there and I am glad i decided to check it out on google to see if it was a scam.  I actually had an accident about 2 years ago and am still awaiting compensation for my injuries, so could have been foolish and thought it was the company i applied for compensation through.  Thankfully my wits came to me and realised there was something very fishy about the message.  Hope these scammers get their comeuppance.  

I just had a text from them and as I was busy at work I text “STOP” for them not to send any more texts as it said on the message. I have called them on my land line number it goes to tmobile answering service. I hope nothing happens… there is the number 07759781324 ….. thanks

 Two messages – 17th and 19th May – +447427 118 661 and +447592 529 754 – first one offering £4700+ and second £3650! Thank you for the posting!!

Hey, I replied claim and couldn’t wait for them to call me….they called the next day, the girl said

 “I believe you want to make a cliam” I said “I do, I do” ” What for” she repied, “Amesia” I said…..”Amesia” she asked, I said “Yes Amesia, because according to your records I have had an accident and I cant remember abloody  thing about it……what exacley happend to me anyway?…I couldn’t it,  she hung up on me, she must of thought I was wasting her time or….I was wasting hers :-)  

I just received a text with a different message basically saying “Our records indicate you still have not claimed compensation for your accident.” This message was sent by the number – 07522069049

I received a similar message today, 31/May/2001 at 15:47 from +447526372434
“Free Msg; Our records indicate you may be entitled to £320 for the accident you had. To apply free reply CLAIM to this message. To opt out text STOP”

I received a similar text message and thought if I just deleted it, it would be ok. I kept receiving them, so I spoke to my network provider who advised me to reply STOP. Every message that I received was unbelievably chargeable!! I ended up with a total of more than £20 in charges. This was my experience so I would not just ignore it. Beware!!

I kept calling and calling no answer for days until one guy with a Birmingham accent of Asian origin responed adn said the same rubbish then put the phone down forever.

They keep sending me these messages and it makes me angry. They always say £3750.
Numbers: 07516306418, 07516304840, 07543012780. And a new most recent message said: “You still not claimed the compensation you are due for the accident you had. To claim then pls reply CLAIM. To opt out text STOP”; this came from number 07759782941.
I’m never going to respond ever cause I know it’s a scam so they should stop it now!!

had same message as above just deleted it but kept number it is 07548059186  is there any way  we can find the id of these scammers 

Hi there, I have at least one text a week from these scams and have alwasy just deleted them, but you do feel like calling/texting them just to tell them to P*@@-OFF.  Anyway here is the most recent number 07591 296817

I got a message from them a while ago though I don’t have the number to
hand as I deleted itright away. I got another message on June 2nd
offering £3650. The number it’s from is one that isn’t here –
07548052203.

Is there anywhere we can report this to? It’s such a pain. I’m thinking of asking advice from the telecoms department of OfCom, though I was wondering whether anyone knew of somewhere more suitable

You have still not claimed the compensation you are due for the accident you had.  To claim then pls reply CLAIM. To opt out text STOP.  This was from 07522075540

i receive several of these annoying texts about having a car accident the funny thing is i dont drive not now not ever have text them bac once to p**s off but didnt work the latest number is *447591221908

Latest message:

“Hi. You still have not claimed compensation for the accident you had and you may be entitled up to £3650. To find out more reply ‘CLAIM’. Thanks”

Hi I have just been caught with a large bill from Orange.They know all about this scam but didn’t contact me at all .It seems I pay One pound fifty everytime they call me. I haven’t got a clue as to what I am supposed to have paid for and I did delete them but The first one I might have looked at.At no time was aI told to text STOP until today

I received a text today from 07596922893 similar message just an offer of £3250 – would like to know where they got my mobile number from

Jane-Lester – don’t text STOP – talk to PhonePayPlus (http://www.phonepayplus.org.uk/), which is the Government regulator for premium rate services and is free to complain to. In the past, I have spoken to them regarding premium rate texts I never subscribed to, and I was eventually compensated for the costs charged to my phone account by the companies who sent the messages (or by other companies who were irresponsible in allowing them to send unsolicited premium texts).

I wonder if it is worth using http://www.ukphoneinfo.com/locator.php to find the mobile network the phone numbers are linked to, and contacting the network to find out the organisation sending the messages (companies are not subject to the Data Protection Act, so they should not have any excuse for witholding this information) and/or terminating the accounts for sending unsolicited messages.

07810546326. I wonder how many of us are android users, these type of txt’s have gone into overdrive since signing up to the google service.

few more numbers for you 07541912843 and 07596915046. These numbers have text me within a few hours of each other! 

I received the same text but with £3250 instead

It was from the number 07770457063

This has never happened to me before it feels so invasive!

Hi , I receved a message from +447825391229 saying “FREEMSG: Our records indicate you may be entitled to £3250 for the
accident you had. To apply free reply CLAIM to this message. To opt out
text STOP”

I was particularly interested to find this page, as I am in a position touched upon by the author. I had a pretty serious accident approximately 12 months ago whilst on holiday in Brazil which left me having to have 2 operations and 4 months off work (with countless other lost hours following that period for pysiotherapy / hospital appointments etc). Around the time of returning to work (last September) I enquired with several legal firms into making a compensation claim – all of which came back saying something along the lines of ‘you have a good case, but it would fall under Brazilian jurisdiction, and as such would be extremely difficult to follow through’. So, I gave up hope. Then, this morning I received this text. Perhaps one of the companies had reveiwed my case and were willing to take it on?
But then…. why would a reputable legal company contact me via text? Hasn’t it been left alone for a bit too long (11 months)? And why would they have the CLAIM / STOP option?
So, I decided to dismiss it, but out of curiosity googled the scam and stumbled across this article. I just wanted to share with you the perspective of someone who has been in an accident, but, ultimately, I think it’s (reasonably) unlikely anyone with a bit of common sense would be sucked in. I would imagine the scammers earn more from people tesxting ‘STOP’ back to them rather than the actual ‘CLAIM’ option with people not wanting to be bothered. It’s the sort of thing that I could imagine my Dad doing, in the hope of getting some peace and quiet.
By the way, the number I received the text from was +44 7549 324 563

I remember reading last year of a similar type of scam. If you respond to the text it can cost you a lot of hard-earned cash.

Same text from 07900279969. “FREEMSG: Our records indicate that you might be entitled to £3750 for the accident you had…”
The interesting thing is that I had an accident in my flat just yesterday and I phoned some maintenance companies to get quotes. Thanks God I found this post. Otherwise I was going to fall into their trap.
I’m now wondering if they have a man inside one of those maintenance companies.

I had 2 messages in the space of a week from different numbers saying “you are entitled to £3750 for the accident you had”. Haven’t text back of course. I then had another text saying “you are still entitled to £3250 in compensation from the mis-selling [email protected]:disqus  PPI”. Stupid mobile scammers.

I got one today. From 07763627092. If everyone who receives this complains to The Office of Fair Trading on 08454040506, the Offcom people who deal with privacy on 0800500212, phonepayplus on 0800500212 and also your service provider and report the scammers number, they can build up evidence and may be pressured to do something about it.

Hi! I received the same message today, but from another number:00447763627196.
My mobile provider is T-Mobile. How could we get rid of these scammers?

I just recieved this message from+07763627394
Is there any way that this can be reported as fraud? I would also be interested to know how they got my mobile number as i’m very careful with allowing my details being shared with third parties.

I regularly receive text messages concerning the “accident” and others concerning being sold “insurance”. Both are from reputable companies – not scammers – but both are illegal according to UK law. However, finding these people is another matter. The Information Commissioner’s Office is taking action to prevent these companies continuing this irritating business, but it will probably take years before it is implemented.

I’ve received the one about a personal injury claim as well, but also received a text about being mis-sold insurance protection – I’ve texted stop a few times, but they kept coming, so texted `claim` and then asked to speak to a manager when they returned my call. Apparently it was a firm called Money Return Ltd, I asked about the PI text messages and was told they sent a lot of different text messages out including ones relating to PI. Told them it was tantamount to harrassment when I had already asked them to stop and they promised me to remove my details from their system. Customer service telephone number is 01254 685630.

Mine was from 07414591284… And honestly I got afraid, since just half an hour before I received the message I was sent a letter saying that I was under an investigation because I had not a TV licence payed… I do not even got a TV, and my phone is in my hands since a month or so… I am an Erasmus student in Scotland, tha’s why I got so nervous… These kind of things in another country make people feel desperate, in my opinion… Can’t imagine how many students as me are paying these things…

Free Msg: Our records indicate, blah blah blah. I usually just send an obscene text message back or tell them I’ve reported them to ofcom etc and have never been charged

i just got exactly the same thing.. lols i have been hit by a car, so thought wtf….. but it was years ago and my phone isnt under my name so straight away i thought it was a lil dodgy :) 

These types of scam are very strange as before opening any message we don’t know that our personal information is leaked or hacked.You should always be aware of these types of situations because sometimes this create lots of problems for you in future.

Motorcycle accident Claims

Some regions in the UK are popular as
motorbike accident hotspots in the UK. Though most of these
words of mouth that spin into fictions, originally stand on truths, there are
places in the country that statistical reports tell apart as safe and unsafe
for motorcycle riding. The figures are scandalizing in the south-eastern zone
of the country. London stands second with the maximum motorcyclists being
Londoners in the UK. South-west and West Midlands are other accident prone areas wherefrom we receive a large
number of clients. A multivariate analysis of the motorcycle accidents that are
fatal in nature shows bewildering reports. We have, so far, handled all kinds
of motorcycle accident cases that have ended variously, such as, injuries,
disability and death. [More Information]

Work accident Claims

This is the commonest kind of accident in the United Kingdom, despite the consistent
efforts of HSE in putting hold to the escalating count. Extracts made from the
accident books in companies say that the number of accidents in workplaces is
surmounting at an alarming level. Fatal work accidents in warehouse and factory environments, serious
injuries from slip and trip, auto-accidents during field work, etc. are some of
the cases we’ve handled during our career. We understand the insecurity of
employees in taking legal actions against their employer. Thus, we take the
charge of doing the same legally so that you are rewarded for the pain and can
return back to your former work position after complete recovery. [More Information]

What a load of rubbish and scammers to boot, I’ve been housebound for years and haven’t had an accident. The more people who report these money hungry idiots the better. .

This is an opportunity to get your lost money back, who would believe that the Nigerian Government will compensate everyone that has been defrauded of their money in different ways! I was scammed of $35,000 believing to receive the funds my late Husband left for me which was never true. I almost took my life because i kept borrowing money from friends to pay up these fees required before having full access to the funds but i lost everything without any money given to me, i made a report to the FBI, UN, and the Nigerian Embassy with all the details about this scumbag but i never heard anything. But i was shocked when i saw a comment by Barbara Wall-cot that Nigerian Government and some other bodies where compensating everyone that has been scammed in one way or the other which she was a beneficiaries to the on going compensation, so i gave it a try and behold i received a compensation funds of $500,000.00 United States Dollars. Stay away from scammers and please contact the agents for your compensation: [email protected]
