1-800-VICTIM2 is spreading the word about an illegal insurance fraud scam that targets accident and injury victims.
Be Cautious if a Stranger Contacts You After Your Accident
When you’re involved in an injury-causing accident, many people want to try to take advantage and make money off of you. These people are called runners. You didn’t give them your phone number, but they call you. They then try to refer you to a clinic or lawyer. They will probably offer you money or a ride.
This is a scam! Don’t fall for it.
These runners illegally obtained your confidential personal information from the hospital. Many insurance companies are already investigating the lawyers, doctors, and runners involved in these schemes for fraud.
If you fall for this scam, your case could become the next target of these investigations.
