An SMS from 07517576150

A pothole in West End Lane, West Hampstead, London, made me lose control of my bike a few months ago. Fortunately, a motorist in a Golf a few meters behind me managed to hit the breaks in time. After my visit to A&E, my only injuries were a broken finger of one hand and multiple bruises.

But then this week I got a SMS from some ambulance chasers inviting me to claim compensation for the accident.

FREEMSG: Our records indicate you may be entitled to 3750 pounds for the Accident you had. To claim for free reply with CLAIM to this msg. To opt out text STOP.

Sender: 07517576150

I hope that those two events, visiting the A&E and receiving the SMS, are not connected. If they were, selling my private data would constitute a criminal offence by someone connected to the NHS.
