[access-uk] Re: OT but may be important for members

I got a call from that number and i'm not even a Barclay's customer. If you put the number into Google it turns up loads of comments about it.

I would just warn all the family not to press anything and hang up.

John, I understand your concern, sounds a bit fishy. Why not ring Customer services and ask them for Barclay's Fraud centre number, or if the 0845 number is genuine?

Hello All,

This morning I have received two calls from the number 0845
3512291 purporting to be from Barclays Fraud Section. It
invites me to press any number to continue. I strongly
suspect that this is some form of scam, if only to get you
to press any number and be charged for the pleasure of
nothing. And, of course, it could be even more sinister; or
it may even be genuine.

Has anyone else received such a call from this number and,
if so, do they know if it's genuine or not?

If this is Barclays Fraud Section, I am not impressed by
this superficial and impersonal method of contacting
customers about what may turn out to be a serious matter.
People,  like me, are always going to think that this sort
of call is a scam and ignore it.

I have checked  on Google and it is mentioned several times
but some of these reports say that it is a genuine number
and others that it is sham.

Any more reliable details would be  appreciated.

thanks.
John.
