Why did I get a text message offering £3750 compensation?
Why did I get a text message saying “FREEMSG: Our records indicate you may be entitled to £3750 for the accident you had. To claim for free reply YES to this message. To opt out text STOP.”?
This is an un-related text message scam, and nothing to do with this website.
Reports of accidents added to the Stop-SMIDSY site are kept confidential and secure, you will not be contacted by anyone about the accident unless you explicitly ask for assistance from the CTC’s solicitors.
Further information and reports of other people getting this particular text message can be found using a Google search:
