Attention! Alleged car rental company sends scam text messages - Expert analysis

The call number 01256306797 has been negatively rated by tellows users. The people contacted received an SMS message containing the full name of the person in question, asking them to call back the number, which allegedly belonged to a company called "C.A.R.S", and to provide a reference number. Some tellows users report that they were also asked to pay a debt. These calls are almost certainly a scam. It is particularly important at this point not to give out personal data arbitrarily.

    maybe a debt collection Co. as I had a threatening letter from Post Office telecom wanting money after they took over my ISP without ny knowledge and cut off my phone without warning after none of their comms reached me. As I have no contract with them or no warnings they can go whistle/

    I received the same message, and when I rang they demanded my details. Not just financial but dimensions of intimate parts. When I refused the guy said ‘oh cmon sharings caring’. I asked for his name and he said ‘jimmy saville’ and then laughed hysterically before hanging up. I think it might be a scam

    Don't trust this scam merchant, to not state the reason for the call and to text and not write an official letter, it all stinks of a scam. The thing that worries me is that I never give out my number unless for a good reason, so somebody in a reputable job is selling information!

    They sent a message asking to call them urgently, when I called them they refused to say what there company did unless I gave them my details, they said they had sent emails and letters, which I havent recived. Obviously I refused to give them any details what so ever and would advise you to do the same

    As above - text message from CARS (no number so I can't block it) addressed to random person (in this case a Saudi Arabian I would guess - definitely not me!) asking to ring them on said number with the reference or click on dodgy link. There does appear to be a debt collection agency called CARS (contact details available online) - no idea if this is them or someone impersonating them!

    I believe all legit companies are not allowed to by law contact persons via email or sms due to the volume of scams going around. The only messeges I receive now a days from reputable companies are warnings of this exact kind of thing. Trust nothing anymore. If someone calls and there is a blip before they say hello this is a scam call centre. If a SMS from unknown contains a link ignore and report as spam. Lastly stay safe everyone.

    Just had text on my phone requesting my husband to call this number quoting ref. He called and asked who they are. They asked for his name, when he refused a guy named Tim said it was for data protection and that a client had passed on his details. Refused any information and was told they would send letter to his address. Have never owed anybody any monies whatsoever. No information given to them over phone. Very unsure of these calls or texts.

It's a scam and I have told them to FO!
