Hi so yesterday I had a car accident but I say accident I don't think anything happened! So i was on a busy roundabout and then a lady jumps out of her car and says i hit the back of her car and scuffed it. I was so confused, I took my engine off and looked over granted my car was really close to hers but it was no way touching! Anyway everyone was honking their horn and she was not getting off this roundabout so I said lets pull over to a side road and talk.
Anyway this is where it gets really weird, she comes out of her car and shouts that I need to get her money or she'll call the police and say I was on my phone which I wasnt. She was awful I was on my own and I felt scared I said to her just to appease the situation that i'll give you my number and im so dumb i said ill pay her cuz at this point I was thinking wait did I hit her I was questioning my own sanity. I didnt get out the to look at her car cuz it was dark and I didnt feel safe
She sent me pictures of her 'damage' I see tinnnny scratches nothing major at all- she said shes gonna send me a quote of her damage
BTW THIS IS IMPORTANT! during the incident she didnt take my insurance details, she didnt take any details other than my number. I dont think she took pictures because today she messaged me with pics of her car on her drive way not of the incident so Im am assuming she didnt take pics of my car or her car

ANYWAY i dont know what to do should I just pay her? The only thing is even tho she hasnt got pics my bumper is damaged anyway I bought it like that what if insurance say oh its damaged you must of done it?


Some advice please thank you so much xxx

Don't apologise I don't have much idea either but I do know you definitely shouldn't pay her. Wondering if Doonesbury could offer some useful advice about this?

she clearly picked you as her victim because you are a new driver. your insurance company will be aware if this woman has made other bogus claims in the past & will not automatically blame you.

^this.

Did you get her car reg? Is you car at all damaged?

If she continues to hassle you go to the police.
