We do not send unsolicited text messages.
We are aware that a large number of people have been receiving text messages informing them that they may have a claim for personal injury together with a link to a website very similar to our own including;
What’s My Claim Worth do not send unsolicited text messages to contact anyone under any circumstance.
We take this matter very seriously and rest assured we are actively working, with Action Fraud and the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) on stopping whoever it is that is sending these messages.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority are also aware of this scam and have added this warning message on their website: https://sra.org.uk/consumers/scam-alerts/whats-my-claim-worth.page
How can I stop receiving these texts?
The Claims Management Regulator offers the following advice on their website:
“It is against the law for companies to send you marketing texts unless you have previously given them permission. You may have done so in a number of ways usually by completing online forms, surveys or whilst making a purchase and agreeing that your details can be used for marketing purposes.
If you receive a text message from a company you are familiar with reply ‘STOP’. This will inform the sender that you no longer wish to receive their text messages.
If the text message is from an unknown or unfamiliar company, we recommend you don’t reply. Responding to the text will confirm that your number is active and might actually result in you receiving more messages, or even voice calls. You can report the text to your network operator, to report a marketing text, forward the text to 7726.”
Alternatively you can report your concern directly to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) here. All the information received will assist the ICO in its investigations.
June 2015 – Update
A recent update to our claimometer now enables users to enter their mobile number to obtain a valuation of their claim by text. This is the only text message sent by What’s My Claim Worth and will appear on the users phone as having been received from ‘Claimometer’. We do not store these numbers for marketing purposes.
