    An alert at work draws attention to a Hoax Barclays email asking users to click on a link. It asks users to confirm bank details.

    Users are advised; DO NOT click this link as it is a hoax and Barclays confirm they have not issued it.

    I don't have a link to the e-mail, but please be aware.
  2. Better still, this link is apparently how the fake Barclays email looks like.
  3. Nice to see but it is only one of thousands in circulation. Never ever provide any details asked for in an unsolicited E Mail they are all a scam.

    At the moment I'm getting them from Barclays, HSBC, Nationwide & Egg but stangely non from my bank. :D
  5. Have had loads of these, usually in slightly shaky English.

    I sometimes give them fictitious data - I assume that when they can't access an account, they'll think they fat fingered the details,and will try again several times.
