Text SMS Compensation scam

We have had some of our client’s contact us with regards to text messages they have received with regards to compensation claims

Firstly these text messages are in no-way connected with White Dalton or the service we provide. We would never send these types of messages nor would we sell any of your information to third party companies.

Not only have some of our clients received these but our staff have as well. One even had a company in Manchester call up offering to help with his compensation claim when clearly, he hadn’t had an accident.

The messages are worded in a variety of ways, one example is:

“free msg our records indicate you may be entitled to £3750 for the accident you had…”

Our advice to you if you receive a message like this is to simply ignore it. Do not reply to the message as that will tell the unscrupulous company that is sending these messages that there is someone at the other end of the mobile number they have spammed.
