Spotting fraudulent emails

What should I do if I receive a fraudulent or suspicious email claiming to be from Barclays?

Barclays does not send emails asking you to confirm your security details or any other confidential information. We have many examples of scam emails and take action against the fraudulent websites as soon as we become aware of them. If you have received an email asking for your Online Banking security/log-in details, please contact Barclays as soon as possible.

If you’d like to send us a copy of the email you’ve received, please forward it to and then delete it from your email account immediately. Please do not reply to any such emails or follow any links to websites claiming to be Barclays Online Banking. We also suggest you check your computer for viruses.
