Hello
Seems like a scam.

1. Why would you receive compensation for a accident that you were never involved in?

2. Findlaw is a website to find things relating to law, solicitors, legislation and the like. It is not a law firm.

I would suggest to cease all contact with them.

I wish to help you in this situation.
