Help!

Ok I had shoulder surgery yesterday and while coming round from the general anaesthetic I received a text from this number 07786 200012 offering money because of my accident. The problem is I replied yes without really considering the implications. Does anyone have any idea who the number belongs too? I've tried phoning but that didn't work.

I don't particularly want to take money from a cash strapped army for what was an unavoidable accident especially as the care I've received has been brilliant.
Cheers

Was this the message:
FREEMSG: Our records indicate you may be entitled to 3750 pounds for the Accident you had.
To claim for free reply with YES to this msg. To opt out text STOP.
If so it's a phishing one.
If they contact you again, delete it.
As for your accident, if your entitled to a claim under the AFCS you don't need a bunch like this taking a skim off the top to help you do it.

It appears to be a scam. I have had two similar messages in the last week, don't know the number they were from, as I simply deleted them. The website WhoCallsMe.com has had a flurry of posts in the last week regarding this number. The text appears to be the same for everyone -

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

Stand by for more incoming shite.

I'll add.
The fact that you were in hospital when the text came is pure coincidence.
They use a shotgun method of sending them out. Thousands of random numbers hoping one will hit something.
