Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

This message is dated Monday 10th February 2020 for Ascot.
First a new type of scam:
The victim received a phone call, purporting to come from Dyson the vacuum cleaner company.  They said the victim had been referred to them as the owner of a Dyson - which in fact she did.  They had a special offer on at this time, re vacuum cleaner bags.  If she would give them her bank card details, they would make her part of the offer and she would receive a supply of bags.

It was of course a scam phone call and attempts were made to remove money from her account.  I thought Dysons, didn’t have bags ???
Very simple case - DON’T LET IT BE YOU.

9/2  Sunday 6.50 p.m.  Woodby Drive.  Burglary.  Security patrolled the building and found a door forced and footprints on the carpet. Not yet known if anything stolen.
10/2  Monday 2 a.m.  Silwood Park, Buckhurst Road.  Shed break.  Padlocks removed on tractor shed.  Security staff alerted the police who attended immediately.  Police found a white pick-up tow truck at the property, engine running but no-one in it..  After checking, they found a vehicle with a window smashed and ignition damaged.
7/2  Friday 3 p.m. / 7.30 p.m.  Buckhurst Road.  A car broke down and was left beside the road for collection later.  When the owner returned it was gone.  A black BMW 120D index YC ** EBN
