Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

This message is dated Tuesday 11th  February 2020 for Maidenhead.
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 ???
