    Alex reported Barclays with the number ‎08000852652 as Aggressive advertising

    This is Barclays number and you can check it by calling Barclays via Direct Call and ask in them.
    But sincerely saying I'm disappointed on how Barclays works. Below is my story:
    I was called from that number on 31st of March 2016 and the girl presented herself as person from "relationship department". She started asking me security questions like "last 2 letters of mothers name" and my "birth date". I though that this is suspicious and hang the phone. But still was a bit nervous about that - so went to Barclays Moorgate branch:
    1. I've spoken with 3 employees from branch and all of them were saying that this is fraud rent attempt and I should never tell my details like that. But I still was picky and asked to check my account and report this number in their system. In the end consultant in the Branch said that I should call Barclays via "Direct Call" from my mobile banking because the don't have enough data to do that in Brach.
    2. So I've clicked "Direct Call" from my mobile banking and reported same info about suspicious call. The said that this is VALID BARCLAYS NUMBER and redirected me to same "relationship" department and same girl that was asking me security questions in the morning. She didn't ask me those questions anymore (because I called them via Mobile Banking) and started offering different Barclays crap like "saving account" and "blue rewards". I asked her why she were asking security details in the morning - she told that there is no guarantee that my phone is not stolen and they need to ask some questions to make sure that I'm a valid account holder.
    To sum up: I've spent an hour dealing with that. People in Barclays have no idea how other departments work. The behave like typical scammers and you never know whether Barclays or some scammer is calling you. I will always use only "Direct Call" via mobile banking. This number is a Valid Barclays Number. Hope this helps

    Useful comment apart from the fact that this number is fraudulent. Barclays staff put a note on your account if they have tried to contact you just in case you ring back so that you can get transferred straight to the right person. My story was similar to your own but when I phoned barclays through the direct call line on the app the guy told me that there was no note and that it was fraud. He gave me the number for the fraud department and told me to get as much info as possible off them next time they call.

    So just to set things straight, i got this call, yes security i feel could be a little more thorough, however once i had a great conversation with 'Graham' i was fairly certain it was legitness. After the call i proceeded to go to the Barclay app to contacton live chat and a completely different agent was able to confirm this was ok and Graham was a legit member and a pretty cool guy (that last bits a joke) to thus that ever hesitate contact the support by phone or by the app. It'll be set straight for you and if not the banks aware of a possible breach. Ya feel me fam.

    Barclays has been reported with number ‎08000852652 as Trustworthy number

    1/8/20, 9:53 AM

    Had a call from this number last night and the caller was stating that they were from Barclays Marketing team, He gave me some details that they knew, and asked for a couple of bits of information (DOB and ONLY the first and last letter of my mothers maiden name). To be honest, I didnt really think about it and gave him my DOB (This could be easily googled if he had the details he had already given me) and the two letters of my mothers maiden name. He then proceeded to tell me that I had a provisional loan on my account and the exact balance on my debit account, and another savings account.

    After I ended the call with the man, I called Barclays through the app and the guy on the phone said I should never have given the informatino out (However this is information that is very non descript and couldn't possibly allow access to my account).

    Now here is the strange turn.

    As the call I made to Barclays concerned me, I called the fraud prevention team (from a different phone on the number from their website). Went through the security. The guy I spoke to confirmed that it was in fact their marketing team that called and that this is listed on my account with the exact time that I received the original call and the callers name, also that the first person I called on the accounts team should have checked to see if there were any outgoing calls before causing any panic.

    I had a worry reading all of the comments, but on this occasion it was a legitimate Barclays call making sure I was happy with my account and services that they provide me.

    Received call from the same number and the guy introduced himself as some Barclays CR team. He then went ok asking me some security questions, which i said i wont be able to answer. He asked me if there were any specific reason for not giving him answers to security questions, my reply was what if he was a scam and asked me first and last digit this time, second and so on on another time, until his network has all of it, he did not reply me but said they had no way of identifying myself. I then said i could ask him security questions and if he answers my question, i would trust he was from barclays, i asked me what is my current account balance on the account ending with Xx and what was my last transaction, the guy was blank :D.
    I don’t know if the number shown is because if spoofing from the scammers but if this is real Barclays thn i must say it is a very poor customer service to use cold calling techniques

    Call to my mobile claiming to be from Barclays to discuss how they can help me. I had not contacted them at any point for help. She wanted security information which I did not give. I advised I was driving and could they called me back after 5 pm. That was half an hour away. No call back.

    I had a call from this number saying they were Barclays and that it is a courtesy call for all new customers. They wanted to make sure that I was getting the most out of my accounts since they have been opened and wanted me to answer some security questions to verify who I was. They asked for Date of Birth, First / last letter of my mother's maiden name and to name a direct debit that goes out of my account. I did not provide them with the details hung up and phoned Barclays through their direct call on the mobile app. I then spoke with a gentleman who informed me that whenever they make a call to a customer it is compulsory for them to put a note on the customers account if they have contacted the customer. He couldn't find such a note and gave me the phone number for the fraud department. He told me that if they call again ask them what department they are from, what the purpose of the call is and then to call the fraud team at Barclays. DO NOT TRUST THIS NUMBER.

    This number called saying they were Barclays and asking for details of my security questions so we could discuss "at to day activity" on my account. I refused and called the Barclays fraud department, they confirmed that this is not a legitimate Barclays number and is definitely a scam caller. Don't believe anyone who tells you it's legitimate, Barclays themselves have confirmed it as otherwise and have taken my report on board.

    SCAM - INSECURE WEBSITE ON PHONE CHECK! Had a call this evening and the man said that the call was about "my mortgage." When I asked him what mortgage, he said that it was just mortgage advice. I told him that it seemed suspicious and that I would need to check his number. He told me to check it on the Barclay's number check website, which I did. That told me it was a genuine number, BUT...THAT WEBSITE IS NOT HTTPS (i.e. it's NOT a SECURE website.) No bank would have a website that is not secure! Therefore, I believe it to be a SCAM! Just because there's a website claiming to be a Barclay's site, if it's not secure (HTTPS) it's not going to be Barclay's! Be very careful!

    Had a call late evening and the bird says it's from Barclays to discuss the features of my account. Confirmed last two letter of my mother's maiden and date of birth which i did reluctantly. After a while i grew suspicious because i was put on hold. In the mean time i google the number and i grew suspicious based on the information i was reading from this blog. I started asking her details from my account and payments ive made. She got it wrong and i politely told her im going to end up the call. However, after reporting to Barclays, Ive been told this is a GENUINE BARCLAYS NUMBER and shouldnt be worried.

    Said "we've had some improvements on the Barclays mobile App that will be of interest to you. Please before we commence, confirm your date of birth".

    I hung up immediately. They called back and I let it ring out. No voicemail left.

    I was called yesterday from the number, a woman saying she was from Barclays to tell me about a new feature of the mobile app. She then wanted to check my details - asking for my birthday or numbers from my account. I refused and she said she was unable to tell me this 'new exciting news'. I pointed out that if this was to tell me me some new benefits, she didn't need my personal info. She still refused to tell me, and said I should go to my local branch to get the news. She hung up abruptly. I checked the number on the Barclays website and it said it was a genuine Barclays number. I rang Barclays and explained what had happened. The chap there said it was a genuine Barclays number and said he would ring it to see what was happening. He did ring the number but just got an answerphone - which he said shouldn't happen. He recommended that if I get another call from them that I should NOT give them any information.

    I received a call (call centre, non-uk accent) from 08000852652 purporting to be from "Barclays Premier", - he claimed to be following up an email (which was incorrect) and started to ask for my details - No Way!!!
    It's true 08000852652 IS a Barclays number (I looked up Barclays Premier and phoned them)BUT remember a scammer can make the number appearing on your phone any number they choose so spoofing a "real"number is an obvious and easy thing for a scammer to do.
    Don't be fooled by internet links either!

    Your card numbers can be obtained from anywhere. Think of all the online sites you buy from that have been hacked over the years. One thing that genuine banks calling YOU will never ask you is your security details.
    Now not only do they have your card details, they now have an idea of your passwords etc to gain access to your money. I would change them pronto if I were you.

    This number called me today, they asked for my mother's maiden name and my postcode, which I would have thought Barclays would already have. I answered them both incorrectly and they just carried on talking about their new app anyway. This means it was either a false call or a terrible Barclays department.

    I told them I wouldn't use the app anyway and they were a bit stumped and had nothing else to say. Very odd.
