Barclays Bank Security Alert

Phishing Scam E-mails

The email below entitled "Barclays Bank Security Alert" appears to be a bogus or scam email.  Phishing scams involve "official" looking emails and webpages designed to trick you into believing they are from a legitimate source.  Many of them imply that your account will be suspended or deactivated unless you click the link to the webpage that is linked from the e-mail.  Sometimes they say that someone is trying to use your account or this is done for "security" purposes.  Once you are at the site, they will ask for personal information.  You may be asked to provide or verify personal information such as bank account information, credit card information, social security information and password information.  If you get such an e-mail, you should delete it and do not provide any of the requested information.  However, if you are still not convinced that you have a fraudulent e-mail, please contact Barclays directly and explain the e-mail you received.
