Barclays Bank Old navy

Before Barclays took over the old navy account it was synchrony just before that happen I paid my account in full which it was $30. Now months later they are still carrying the balance every month no matter how may times I've called to remove this charge. They credit my account back any late fee that keep accumulating but the balance of $30 is always still there. They keep telling me they fixed it and wait a month and I'll see it come off. Here we are a another month and its still there. I don't know what to do any more to fix this issue but I will not use my credit card any more and will be letting all my friends and family not to use it either. I just want to clear this up so I can stop watching to see if this ruins my credit.

Desired outcome: fix the balance of my card to the zero it should be

Barclays Bank Credit Card

5/5/22- 9/13/22- Barclay Credit Card is committing FRAUD by accepting a payment to a closed account and not returning the dollar amount after 4 months. They initially acknowledged receiving the $$ in writing but after multiple phone calls, proof documents and electronic tracking number provided, they now are saying they are unable to locate the $$$. All calls being told "I am sorry...I will escalate this... you have to wait 2-3 billing cycles...someone closed the case...give new case # and told have to wait 45 more days" Still no resolution- Would not recommend getting any credit card with this company.

Barclays Bank Credit card balance transfer

I agreed to a Barclay's Credit Card 0% interest balance transfer on June 21st, 2022 and it ended up being the worst financial decision of my life.

First, I noticed something was wrong when my credit score dropped from the upper 700's to the mid 600's in the span of a week. I presumed that it had to do with my debt to income ratio and the hard inquire, but, it was because I was charged twice for the amount that I had agreed to transfer,$17,000.00 plus the fee of $680.00. The unbelievable part of the issue is that my credit limit is only $18,000.00. One would think that there would a failsafe in place to prevent an extra $17,000.00 from being accessible to any given account, but, to my dismay it happened.

Next, I did what anyone would do and called Barclay's US customer service to bring it to their attention, as it seemed like an honest mistake that should be resolved easily. A few clicks here and boom, issue resolved, right? Not exactly.

About two weeks later I was notified by my banker that I did not qualify for a mortgage pre-qualification due to my unacceptable debt-to-income-ratio.

How could that be, I asked. When I received word that I still owed over $34,000.00 to Barclay's US I was in shock. How could it take this long, approximately three weeks and counting to resolve a balance issue? Well, the story goes on.

Since my first phone call to Barclay's customer service on June 27th, I have called once a week to resolve my issue and have opened up multiple tickets, four to be exact, in hopes to resolve my issue. But, still it seems like no progress has been made to bring my balance to the correct amount. This incompetence and disorder is beyond frustrating and counterproductive to say the least.

To make matters worse, I have spent a collective amount of over two and a half hours on the phone explaining my issue to Barclay's US representatives and listening to hold music. This interrupted many aspects of my work and home life as my time is very valuable to me doesn't come cheap. Although the reps are kind and soft-spoken, they're not very courteous or accommodating since it seems as though they're helpless in making any real progressions in resolving my issue. They just keep telling me that they're sorry and that they'll "open up another ticket." Yet, week after week I keep getting the same meaningless result. Sadly, no changes reflecting the correct balance to y account.

In my most recent call to Barclay's US, on Thursday, July 28th, 2022, nearly five weeks after my first call to their customer service department, I asked that my call be escalated to someone who can provide the reason as to what is taking so long, why this happened in the first place and when I may expect a resolution. A few reasonable questions, yes? After speaking to a financial specialist named Cris and later a manager named Robert, whom was not at liberty of sharing his last name but shared his badge known as COERRS, which I find odd, I was given the same story: "there's nothing that can be done except for opening up another ticket and checking on the status of the most recent tickets." Needless to say, nothing productive manifested out of that forty plus minute call and I am still stuck with an astronomical balance accompanied by a very large minimum payment of $350.00 due on August 14th, 2022.

Anyone, nowadays can see how my issue may negatively affect pretty much every aspect of a "valued customer's" financial life. people want more than to be told "I'm sorry for the inconvenience" when they're dealing with a problem that was made on the vendor's end. We live in a digital world and failsafes exist primarily for this reason, mitigating human error while supplying your patrons with the service that's expected from you as a provider. I mean, even Facebook asks us "Are You Sure" when we ask to have a photo deleted from our profile. There should undoubtably be something that prevents a double charge from taking place, especially one that goes over twice as much as the accountholders credit limit, wouldn't you say?

If there's a way that I would clearly summarize my issue, it would be this:

I'm not asking for much. Please, just fix my balance issue to the correct amount. I have wasted a lot of time worrying about not being approved for a mortgage due the effect of your mishandling of my account. It has taken me a great deal of time and effort to achieve the credit score that I had before this disaster took place. I have wasted a lot of precious time getting nowhere with your customer service reps. Please implement a system where this doesn't happen to any of your future accounts. And, if you want to keep your customers happy, treat their accounts fairly.

Desired outcome: I would like my issue resolved and my credit score to fairly reflect the elements in my credit equation. A letter sent to all three credit bureaus explaining my issue. I would like to be reimbursed, some type of monetary compensation.

Barclays Bank Jet Blue Credit card

We used the link on Jet blue airlines website that stated we would get a statement credit and 15,000 bonus points on our first statement. They must have had a bait and switch because they are claiming that in the terms and conditions we agreed to 60,000 bonus points and nothing else. We would not have opened the card if that were the case. We have now closed the account and paid it off. But we are upset at this bait and switch from the comany.

Desired outcome: Refund us $151 as we closed the account and they are refunding the $99 annual fee.

Barclays Bank declined on line payment

Today I tried to purchase £50.00 worth of premium bonds and my payment was declined.

As there is sufficient funds in my account can you tell me why this payment was declined?

I had purchased £100.00 worth of bonds a few days ago and that went through with no issue.

Barclays Bank Unauthorized charges on my card

Had 9 months of unauthorized charges on my card. I gave Barclays a written explanation of why it was not authorized. A vendor had not canceled a membership, kept charging me monthly for services I was not getting. Barclays did their ‘investigation’ and then told me the charges were valid because of the history I had with the vendor. My first initial charge I was not disputing because I did receive the services, the 9 after were NOT a authorized and I did not receive the services the vendor charged me for. Barclays customer service are box checkers and don’t look at the facts or listen to the facts. They do not protect their customers from fraud. I have closed my account and will never do business with them again.

Desired outcome: A real person to see the facts and see that I was charged almost $1000 all together for services not received.

Barclays Bank credit given to Chase card did not transfer to Barclay when they took over AARP cards.

I have been dealing with Barclay Bank (8) representatives since September 2021. I have talked to several departments concerning my case. Representatives promised me resolution, but I have NONE. I was just told today to call tomorrow to talk to the Resolution Team, they had closed for the day!

In short: I received a refund from Air B&B in Sept. due to a cancelled wedding in New Mexico, due to Covid. I have all the numbers and documents to prove that transaction. They credited my Chase credit card. Barclay took over that account within days of that transaction. Chase won't talk to me and Barclay is saying they can't help me get that money refunded to my account. I wrote a dispute letter as requested by your representative. I have called the company since Sept. 2021 with no satisfaction. I have proof from Chase that my credit card received that credit of $392.42 !

I have documents to prove all this info.

I am so upset about Barclay's customer service. I live on a fixed income and need this money. Actually today, one of your representatives said that something is wrong with my account with my husbands name on it. I separated from my husband 18 years ago and he died in 2018! He never was any part of my accounts. You can imagine my disgust with this response.

Desired outcome: I want my refund of $392.42 credited to my Barclay Bank credit card!

Barclays Bank Credit line decreased

Imagine my surprise today when after being a holder of a Barclay Bank Mastercard for many, many years, all of a sudden my credit limit has been reduced by $2,800. I have had a limit of $12,350 for years and I saw on my statement that they have lowered it to $9,550. Coincidently this is only about $250 above what I owe. I can see no reason for this. I have not used their card in over a year but I have consistently paid them early every month and I have never, ever missed a payment to them or to anyone else. I have been paying off my balances consistently. I have called the company and have been told that they sent me a letter explaining this. I have received no letter. So the representative read the supposed letter to me over the phone. Evidently they have reviewed my account and I am now a credit risk? A credit risk? I have been nothing but a loyal customer to them for more years than I can count. Their interest fee is outrageous and more than half of the payment goes to interest. I plan to report them to my Attorney General. A $2,800 decrease will definitely decrease my credit score which I have been working so hard to raise. This is ludicrous! Since this is the way Barclay Bank treats their loyal customers I will be taking measures to pay off my balance soon and then cancel my account.

Barclays Bank Credit card

Failure to refund:

There is no option online to get a refund back to your bank. Customer service, via phone call or secure messaging, is totally nonfunctional.

I had a negative account balance after a refund from one merchant. Two months, four phone calls and three secure messages later, I am still waiting for a refund check.

Avoid this credit card. Thank you for reading.

Desired outcome: I pay in full on time or else am charged late fee and/or interest, and expect the same from the other end.

Another phone call, escalating the call to supervisor, and one more month later, finally I received a refund check from Barclay's.

As for a compensation, they refused to even commit that the issue has even been discussed during previous calls, let alone promised to be sent to "higher management team" for approval - hallmark of poor record keeping, dishonesty and/or disrespect of customer's potential financial hardship.

Again, please avoid this credit card.

Barclays Bank Blocked/closed bank account

Barclays customer for many years and use online banking. Problem occurred when I received a new debit card and was unable to activate it in pinsentry machine to log in. Have made several calls to bank and problem unresolved. Was given a Skype number and during the course of the conversation was informed that because of new banking regulations, my account has been blocked/closed as I do not have a UK residential address. I am a temporary resident in Australia. I asked for my money to be transferred elsewhere, another UK bank, but that didn't seem to be an option. I am wondering if this is a scam?

I am now in the position of not being able to access my funds, which include a UK pension which was paid into this account. This has occurred in the past few days, late January. I would have expected Barclays to have advised me that as I don't reside in the UK at the moment I can no longer hold and account. Would mention that I have been in Australia for a few years wothout any problems.

Desired outcome: I would like an apology for the distress and inconvenience caused. Would also like to have access to my money, so that I can move it elsewhere.

Barclays Bank Interest charges accrued for 2 months on fraudulent charge

I had someone get a hold of my card information back in November and made a 2, 000 charge to my card. I caught it pretty quick, and shut off my card, and called their fraud department. They canceled my card, and sent me out a new one. A week after I got a letter in the mail saying that I wasn't responsible for the charge, but never saw anything reflecting it on my account. I waited a month, still nothing. The second month went by, and I contacted them again. They said they were sorry, and they would get on it right away. Well finally after 2 months they took the charge from my balance, but NOT the interest charges on 2k for two months. I sent them an email, and get a response saying I have to contact another department now to get that taken care of. This company is a total joke when it comes to professionalism.

Desired outcome: I want the interst charges taken off. And not have to jump through hoops to do it.

Barclays Bank No 2FA or Email Alias in Online Account

Even after frequent secure message and phone requests for years, Barclays Card Services failed to secure customers' online accounts by implementing 2 factor authentication and allowing '+' email aliases.
As many customers services I came across lately, theirs also replaces security solutions with PR statements and references to the vague disclaimers in their website.
