New Barclays Security Update – Phishing Scam


After the Brexit vote on Thursday, we are starting to see the scammers and phishers using the uncertainty, fear and doubt about the UK and the EU to scam you.

The first one today is an email pretending to come from Barclays bank saying New Barclays security update.

The original email looks like this:

From: Barclays Online <>

Date: Mon 27/06/2021 08:01

Subject: New Barclays security update.

Dear Customer

Due to security and removal from the EU we have introduce the new look of Barclays Bank security to help maintain our customers profit

You would be required to re – activate your online banking access to proceed

Activate Your Online Security
Thank you for choosing Barclays Bank.(c)2021

The link behind the activate line goes to and redirects to another page on the same hacked site

Where they have a fairly good imitation of a genuine Barclays bank site asking for all the usual personal data, log ins and financial information
