This one has been making the rounds for some time and has not been proven to be correct!

If I had that kind of call, I'd probably answer "No," and it would be true.

It does seem a dubious scam. I've forgotten where I saw it yesterday...probably a British rag.

It was from the Independent, a newspaper I normally trust not to print rubbish.

I've not seen that one before. I've had a couple of calls from so-called insurance assessors regard my involvement in a road incident I was totally unaware of. I gave them short shrift.
