They say it‚Äôs dale from Barclays I gave my name and address nothing else when I said why do u need my birthday and what is it about they couldn‚Äôt tell me. I hung up and called Barclays they have no record of Barclays calling me so DONT GIVE THEM ANYTHING
I received a call from this number earlier. The call started as ‚Äúthis is is being recorded for safety and training purposes‚Äù. The conversation was very echoing which threw me off. They knew where my local branch was, Then asked me to go on the Barclays app and confirm some info which apparently they sent (I did not by the way). Told them nothing had come through then they rushed off the phone. Scam!!!!
Starts with auto recording that the call might be recorded. Then a woman says she is from my local Barclays account and wants to speak to me about an offer that can benefit me as I'm registered as one of their local customers. I don't have a Barclays account. She won't say exactly what the call is regarding until she takes me through security, Which requires my date of birth. I say I'm not comfortable disclosing that info and she says I'm right to be cautious as there are many scams going around
You can go on Barclays official web site phone number checker. And it says it is their phone number. I have had bad experience with echo too. However it is safe to use if only would be possible understand what are they saying.
I received a text message saying they were trying to contact me regarding my Barclays account and that they would call back in an hour. When the call came through, My phone highlighted it as 'potential fraud', And so I didn't answer. They didn't leave a message either.
Said they were calling from Barclays, Wanted my security details to be passed to the unknown to me caller for data protection reasons, Utter tools that have no grasp of how data protection works... They seem like a phishing scam when they call, So be cautious because they are dangerous criminals hell bent on stealing your hard earned money in a fraudulent way or maybe they are not from the bank after all and are different criminals...
Received a strange call this morning from a man with African accent who claimed to be from Barclays and apparently we had had a meeting in November at my local branch..... Not true.. Straightaway asked to confirm my date of birth, Which I said ‚Äúno thank you‚Äù and ended the call.
Call started with a recorded message saying it may be recorded for training purposes and then a woman asked to speak to me (had my full name), I said 'yes' and the line went dead. It didn't feel right.
100% scam. Said from Barclays but sounded dodgy from first word spoke so I asked questions. Q: What office do you work in? A: I am working from home. Q: What office do you normal work in? A: Manchester Q: So why are you calling from a London number? Phone went dead. They had my full name and knew I had an account with Barclays. Now trying me daily
