Dyson Service Cold Call Scam
I just had a call with someone trying the Dyson Service scam on me. Managed to string her along for about 10mins before giving her a piece of my mind before hanging up. She then called me back to call me ignorant and a time waster!
I don’t think she fully understands how this fraudster/mug relationship is meant to develop!Posted 4 years agomaccruiskeenSubscriber
The fact that anyone would pay £150 to have their hoover serviced tells you an awful lot about some of the people who fork over the price of a Dyson in the first place.
It says a lot about vulnerable people and nothing about vacuum cleaners, as is clear in the OP the scammers are calling at random, its just luck when they call someone who is both exploitable and owns the brand of hoover they’ve called about. Even if the intended victim doesn’t own a dyson they can give enough away about themselves in a phone call to make them the target for other scams and they’ll just get a call again in a few days with another attempt. Well done for blaming the victim and patting yourself on the back in one sentence though – almost haiku in its brevity. 🙂Posted 4 years agoflatbackMember
The fact that Dysons last so long ( mine is 14)and come with a full five year guarantee means that a lot of houses have them. The scamers just pick a street ring everyone in it some people get talked in to booking a service then they call and sell/pressure them to buy fake parts they don’t need, its big business for some nasty peoplePosted 4 years ago
