We have received reports of fraudsters impersonating our firm, using a similar name, incorporating ‘AST’ and contacting people to attempt to gain instructions to deal with claims for Road Traffic Accidents and Personal Injury.
The calls are from a range of different numbers and area codes. We have reported the situation to the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Information Commissioners Office and would urge anyone who has a similar experience to report to the ICO using their website to report spam texts and nuisance calls https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/nuisance-calls-and-messages/spam-texts-and-nuisance-calls/
AST Hampsons LLP do not make cold calls and we would urge the public to be cautious with providing any personal information to any caller without verifying their identity. If you are uncertain about who is calling you, please hang up and call our office numbers which are advertised on our website.
