Direct contact solutions

Has anyone had experience?
I was in an accident two years ago and direct contact solutions got in contact recently offering me a reward as it wasn't my fault. They claim it comes from the third party insurer and it doesn't cost me a thing. 

I was pretty convinced to run but I thought i better double check first.

Any ideas?

    Sounds like the same scam phone call I got yesterday. The guy I eventually spoke to after that stupid automated voice was rather annoyed that I was wasting his time. I told him I was in an accident and it was great news that I could claim from the guy I ran over’s estate. I asked if it would come straight from his widow but he wasn’t too forthcoming with the details once he’d heard that I was drunk, did time inside and lost my license for it.

    avoid it and move on, there’s no money coming your way (or mine).

    it's spelt d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y
    there - 'in or at that place'
    their - 'owned by them'
    they're - 'they are'
    it's bought not brought (i just bought my chicken a suit from that new shop for £6.34)

    Virtually everyone gets spam phone calls saying "you have been in an accident...."  even when you haven't.  However, the volume of them going out means that some would have been.   And they will quickly turn the conversation to make it appear that they know all about it.
