Barclays Bank - Fraudulent transactions

I have been with Barclays Bank over 20 years. Money was taken from my savings account via current account also via atm. Barclays closed all my accounts, including credit card. Barclays claims original chip and pin was used as I was the fraudster. I contacted the Ombudsmans regarding all three cases, which all ruled in favour of Barclays Bank. During this time my mother passed away and Barclays left me in a situation I would not wish upon anyone.

I have paid money to a solicitor to get advise and help who promised they could help me and now it seems I have thrown money away.

Dear Mr Jenkins.

Due to your seemingly lack of interest in contacting me
regarding our conversation on Facebook I felt I had no further recourse then to
send a copy of it to Sir Bernard Hogan -Howe the commissioner of the
metropolitan police, I take no great pleasure in doing so, but you made have
made I vary clear that you have no respect for anyone but yourself if you had
any ounce of moral fiber in your body you would have at least tried to sort the
matter out but it shows that men like you have only one interest and that is
self-preservation you called me a fool and that is fare from the truth I am
sorry that it came to this but I will be looking to take legal steps against
you and Barclays your sincerely Graham Baker.

Please not bellow the copy of the email to to Sir
Bernard.

It is not too late for us to resolve this matter
business man to business man.

Dear sir.

My name is Graham Baker I am the C.E.O of a UK
registered company, but I live in Antwerpen Belgium, I am a British
citizen and hold a full UK passport, i have been trying to report what I think
is a fraud that should be looked into

You are my last resort I have tried to get someone to look
into this matter but it seems my voice is not being heard so I turn to
you with the hope that you will be able to look into the matter I have attached
a copy of a conversation between myself and Mr Antony Jenkins the C.E.O of
Barclays bank.

The conversation pertains to a transaction that Mr Jenkins
proposed during the conversation please find bellow the full copy.

As you can see I was sent a copy of the ID card from Mr
Jenkins as prove of his identity I hope this is of some use to you.

I sent an email to Mr Jenkins as seen bellow but got
no reply.

My name is Graham Baker, or Mr Baker as you called me
on Facebook.

I have been in contact with some of you board members and
your legal team concerning the conversation we had on Facebook about one
of your dead clients’ accounts, But is seems the old boys school mentality is
being put into place ignore the problem and it will go away but I can assure
you it will not. You have made it clear that you have no morals concerning your
clients and that you think your position in Barclays Bank entitles
you to do whatever you want with money that is in your care, I find this
offensive and repugnant there for I am informing you that if you think I will
not do anything to bring this matter to the attention of the authorities
you are mistaken I am willing to take it to the highest levels of the
police and if need be the government I have copies of the conversation held by
us on Facebook and have sent one to my solicitor for safe keeping and she is
ready to proceed further with this matter you called me a fool that maybe but I
know right from wrong and you are so wrong thinking you will get away with
trying to obtain that which is not yours I will wait for a reply from you
regarding this matter or we can go to the next level and you try to
explain yourself to the press and the police and any other relevant
authorities I think the public will want to hear all about what happens to
their money when they die I am not afraid of going to court and I understand
that you have a large company of layers behind you, but I will have the public
behind me so make no qualms I will do whatever it takes to
get you attention concerning this matter Barclays does not
need any more bad press.

My email address is [email protected]

My phone number is [protected] it is a Belgium number.

My address is Landbouwstraat 19

2020 Antwerpen Belgium.

Your sincerely Graham Baker.

I apologized using this medium to reach you for a
transaction/business of this magnitude, but this is due to Confidentiality and
prompt access reposed on this medium. In unfolding this proposal, I want to
count on you, as a respected and honest person to handle this transaction with
sincerity, trust and confidentiality.I have decided to seek a confidential
co-operation with you in the execution of the deal which i will like to share
with you An account was opened in our bank in 1997 and till 2003 nobody has
operated on this account, after going through some old files in the records, I
discovered that if I do not remit this money out urgently it would be forfeited
for nothing. This deposit was for 5 years and upon maturity I made effort to
contact my client, l could not reach him. I was forced to travel to Germany and
there I got the tragic news that, my client Mr. Husson, whose surname is same as
yours and his wife Maria, and two kids, his son in law Christian, and their
children, all perished on the Monday, 31 July, 2000 plane crash in German city
of Moenchengladbach.No other person knows anything concerning it because the
then manager of our bank at the time late Husson was depositing the funds have
retired presently, the account has no other beneficiary and my investigation
proved to me that his company does not know anything about this account and the
money involved is USD$26, 700, 000.00 (Twenty six Million seven hundred thousand
United states Dollar). We both have to invest on this business so as to follow
the lagal process, and as well share the benefits equally as partners. I will
have to work on the documents in the bank and take care of the fees and the
change of name in Mr Husson Files and Documents here in the bank.But you will
have to Consult an Accredited lawyer to Barclay bank here in London, United
Kingdom, which i will get you is details, if interested so he can stand and help
us in the claim and the transfer of the funds to your account in your country
Ok?

I want us to first transfer USD$9 Million from this money
into your safe overseas account before the rest so as to avoid any branch of
law to both Countries. I am seeking your assistance as a foreigner, since as a
C.E.O am not allowed to operate foreign accounts.if willing to assist me in
this transaction your share as compensation will be (50%), while (50%) mine.The
business is completely safe and secure, provided you treat it with utmost
confidentiality. It does not matter your area of specialization is not a
hindrance to the successful execution of this transaction. I have reposed
confidence in you and hope that you will not disappoint me. And this is 100%
risk free.We need to trust each other so that this transaction can be executed
faithfully, i want to know further details upon your acceptance of this
business proposal. I wait for your Response

Best Regards Mr.Antony Peter Jenkins. [email protected]

Barclays Bank - Charge to my account

A charge of 115$ was made by minors on my wyndham rewards visa-they are run by Barclay Bank apparently. I complained to the vendor and the credit card customer service department. I was told that the charge would be removed if I provided proof of not having received item.Barclay Bank went back on their decision/word, after I provided the proof of not having the item. they started quoting me some bull about the time having expired for a dispute although there is nothing like this on their site nor were any letters sent to me, indicating that I had a certain time limit to dispute this case. the customer service reps are rude, misinformed and it takes almost 3o minutes to get connected to the right department after they ask you about your issue several times.
I am warning everyone not to sign up for WYNDHAM REWARDS since this is how this nightmare started. they promise you a free hotel night to sign up for the card. Once you sign up, you have to make additional purchases to qualify for the points and then when you try to redeem them, their system is always down, or you have to wait 20+ minutes to speak with a rep about your account. Not worth the time and frustration!

Barclays Bank - Fraud transactions

Barclays are the worst bank ever. Please read this before you even think about opening or staying with barclays.

Ive been a customer since the age of 10. Ive always thought them to be a decent bank. But in the last few months ive had the worst service ever.

I was out of the country for 6weeks in january, I was still employed and was still recieveing 8 weeks worth of wages as I was getting paid twice when I was on holiday. The day I land, I need to withdraw money as I needed to add call time to my phone. But my card got declined. So I check my balance and I see that I have 180, which is strange because I should have had & pound;1200 in my account.

So I phone barclays customer service. And they told me that 200 was taken out due to a credit card bill. And the rest was taken out due to two transactions, one of the amounts was for & pound;400 to aa insurance, another is & pound;200 for some other housing association. They are not mine as I live with parents and I dont have a car.

So they reported it and told me that they are going to investigate it and then refund me the money after the investugation. I would need to fill out the forms, and that it would take an average of a month to return my money, they would issue me with a new card. So a week later I withdraw some money and notice then I see my account balance had & pound;900. I asked a friend who was currently working for a bank some advice and he says. It waqs probably an error due to the fact that they gave it back so soon. So I didnt do anything about it.

A month later, it happens again, apart from the fact that the transaction for aa was the same and the 200 was for british gas. I asked how could this be as I got a new card. So they told me, I would need to fill out the form otherwise they will take the money out of my bank again this will keep on happening. At the time I was in my branch ringing off of the customer phone, my personal banker said, bring it in to us, and we will fax it on your behalf, it will get there soon. So I fill out my forms, there were two papers to the form, but the last paper only has three lines of writing. I return the form back to the branch who faxes it for me.

Now today I check my balance. I have & pound;130 pounds at 9.00 am. I go to work, go on my break, and my card gets declined. I check mybalance, I have nil to withdraw. I ring up barclays to be told they have redebittied the transactions made on my account. So my account is now & pound;400 pounds overdrawn I asked why? Because I didnt send all the paperwork, I told them it was faxed on my behalf, they said they recieved one page of the paperwork and not two. I said well I didnt fax it, a lady at my branch did. They said without the paper work they couldnt process the investigation and took the money for the payments.

I argued with them for a good hour explaining, my situation in the end speaking to four people who all told me the same thing. They cant do anything unless they have the full paperwork. They accept it wasnt my fault, but I explained to them, so if it isnt my fault why do I have to suffer for? I remember the contents of the page that is missing, and all it had was three lines of terms and conditions, there was nothing there that I had to fill out. So they said they will be sending me a new form, and in the mean time they cannot redebit my account with my money. I said so the paperwork will not reach me until tuesdday (Due to the fact that its the royal wedding and we have bank holiday on monday) and then I will have to fill the form, fax it to u again, wait until you process it and complete your investigation and then debit my account, while I recieve bank charges, and I have no money until that day, which they cant put a date on? What am I going to do all that time? They all said there is nothing they can do.

I feel absolutely disgusted by this level of service. The fact that there security is appalling, how can they let such transactions go through after I have reported them to be fraudulent, just because I didnt take it further initially doesnt mean it cant be declined. And now because of someone else's negligience and incompetence im having to suffer by having no money what so ever to survive on. I explained my situation and said what am I going to do to pay bills, there is nothing they can do. They are quick to take my money but not quick to give it back. So I have to suffer with late charges on my bills, plus interest.

The man who I spoke to was saying, I have logged a call to the complaints department they will ring you later, I said is there a chance the person I will be speaking to will give me my money back, he said no so I said you can f*ck off with your call back then and hung up the phone.

Ive been a customer since the age of ten, ive never had any bank charges and regularly promoted barclays to friends and familys who asked me how barclays was. As soon as I get my money back, I will withdraw it all and close my account. Until then, I will be getting paid and as my account is overdrawn and I will not be getting paid until another 13days, I wil be quickly making a bank account in another bank and shall be changing my account details for my wages.

Please do not choose barclays as your bank. They will bleed you dry.

Barclays Bank - Visa card abroad

Whilst travelling in South East Asia. I had my visa card stolen. When I called to Barclays to cancel my card I asked for a cash transfer and replacement card to be sent to my location. Barclays told me cards could only be sent to my home address and that to make a cash transfer I would have to return to my bank in the UK and make a transfer from there (14, 000 miles and £1200 airfares). SO BEWARE IF YOU LOSE OR HAVE YOUR VISA CARD STOLEN BARCLAYS WILL LEAVE YOU TO STARVE TO DEATH IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY.

Just to inform you...

The above subject is what the scammer Mike James is using to scam people out of millions of dollars. I'm a victim who fell under his scam. He cleaned me out of $3, 000.

This is a warning to everybody. If you receive an email from Mike James 'RUN" Do not and I ask, do not reply back to him.

The phone number listed is a cell phone which is disconnected due to the fact that he's wanted by federal and international authorities for money laundering and larceny.

Barclays Bank - Unfair practices

2/21/2011 @5:30
Called and asked about an unauthorized deduction from my checking account via an auto-pay arrangement that I had rescinded. Explained that I had specifically told MC to stop ALL automatic payments for this account over a month ago (in January). Rep said they would have a supervisor listen to the call and contact me in 24-48 hours.

2/25/2011 4:50 PM
Supervisor never called back. Called again - Don (ID#TPBVQM) said he would create a case for unauthorized payment. Told him that his company had already lied to me - he said would make SURE he followed-through and that someone should be contacting me within 10 business days. [Never received a call back.]

4/12/2011 9:31 AM
Called and went through the whole process again. Rep said the case from above has been closed and that they could not reopen it. Rep said they would initiate another case. Rep offered a lower rate (9.9%) on a one-year basis on the condition I pay $xxx to start. After one year the rate would go back to 29.9%. Asked to speak to Customer Service and was told that I would only be rerouted back to Collections until my account was brought current. Rep refused to transfer me to Customer Service until account was brought up to date.

Called again: paid $xxx.xx to bring account current as that was the ONLY way to be able to talk to anyone besides Collections. Transferred to Customer Service to see about getting the lower rate for the remainder of the life of the account - was told that was not possible. Asked about the unauthorized February auto-payment and was told there was nothing they could do. Was also told that the case was closed because it "wasn't a bank error". When asked to speak to a Supervisor was told that the Supervisor would tell me exactly the same thing. Although the recording clearly states "cancel my auto-pay" - and they DIDN'T - that is not a "bank error"?

Barclays Bank - Credit card complaint

Last month I didn't receive a statement from Barclays for my LL Bean Credit card. This month I see a 50% service fee added to the statement. I tried three times to talk to a manager but they just happened not to be there at 9AM, 1PM or 7PM EST, customer service is located in Colorado. Every time I called, all I was told that a manager had reviewed my case and all charges applied. The last time I was told that Three Managers looked over my case and all agreed that all charges applied. Quite interesting that I'm told that managers review cases but there are never managers there to talk to. Customer service was rude, was placed on hold for way too long, only to be told that all charges applied. No one would verify that my statement was even sent only that I was supposed to use the internet. I do not have internet access at home, right now I'm using my work account to access it.

I believe that Barclays Bank is basically ripping the customers off by not sending out printed statement and then collecting the 50% fees and late charges. I've had the LL Bean card for years, ever since they changed to Barclays and I've paid it off every month. I'm sure since I don't like to pay interest charges, they don't want my business and this is their way of getting me to cancel out of their card policy. Well they got their wish. I'll never use the Bean card again, good thing Bean is offering free shipping to all users.

Barclays Bank - Rude customer service

I opened a credit card with Juniper Bank. I used it twice to pay in a restaurant and that was it. When I received my first statement I saw a charge of $40 for non-payment! Apparently, Juniper Bank sent me my statement earlier but received it back because the address they had on file for me was wrong. The customer service lady was very rude and told me it was my fault. What! It was the first statement. How am I suppose to know when to expect the first statement.

To make the long story short, I closed my account over the phone, and will not be recommending Juniper Bank to anyone.

Barclays Bank - illegal practices

I did a balance transfer that was supposed to be a 0% interest. I then made a purchase. When the bill came, I paid off the minimum, and extra to pay off the amount of the purchase - Even a little extra just to make sure. Fro two consecutive months I was charged interest. I complained on 2 separate occasions, but each time I talked to some pacific islander who could barely speak English and her "supervisor" who spoke exactly the same way - I still say it was the same girl. This happened twice. The lengthy holds provided no new information - their explanations sounded like the opening verse to Age of Aquarius (think about it). So I emailed several times -no answers. They also didn't pay the mileage for the card to my US airways account - At that point I just said screw it and decided to cancel the account. This bank is the worst. I've has several cards thru several banks and this one is hands down the poorest I've ever dealt with. Don't make the same mistake I did.

Barclays Bank - Closed account without notifying me

I paid for a cruise using my carnival mastercard. The night before I was scheduled to cruise, I went online to check my available credit. . I was stunned when I discovered that my account had been closed 3 days earlier - 3 days before the cruise without notifying me and after taking a $600 payment. I was scheduled to take a cruise the next day and that $600 was my expense money. I was stranded and trying to borrow money to pay my hotel bill and other expenses. I have always maintained this account and usually pay over the minimum.
To add to my shock, the last person I spoke to on the phone saturday night was rude, disrespectful, and seemed to take pleasure in my troubles. She suggested I get a "payday loan" (On saturday night and I was leaving for the cruise port on sunday morning). Never did she apologize or even seem sympathetic. I was told that carnival had the right to close my account at anytime. I asked if a portion of my payment could be refunded and was told no & ndash; they also had the right to accept a payment at their discretion. I should have made my minimum payment and kept my money for cruise expenses. I was just trying to get my carnival fun points.
Carnival cruise line should not be associated with a bank that would do something like this. As far as I am concerned, whoever reviewed my account could see that I was going on a cruise soon. This was just plain evil.

Barclays Bank - Late payment-charging more interest

Because I was late on a payment, they sent me a letter that since this happened, I have triggered the Penalty APRS of 25.24 on any purchases after today. I haven't used the card in almost a year. It was a joke when I got it. AIRTRAN litereally attacked me in the isle of the airports and on the plane to get this card. They said we would get a free round trip ticket. Still haven't received the free tickets. I will never Barclays again.

Barclays Bank - Unfair job termination

Kindly be informed that I joined BBE on 7/2007 as awareness officer on contracting basis and as an employer I was allowed to have Barclaycard on October 2007. The limit was LE 1250, to transfer my monthly payment with LE 1350 as an installment for the credit card
Mean while, I had other credit cards from other banks, since I was transferring the amount requested from my Barclaycard
I thought of transferring from my Barclaycard to other credit cards till I received I phone call from the operation department that I’m over limit with LE 26000
And my manager informed me to go to BSIS department who wants to investigate the issue, I went to the concerned department on January 12 and we reached an agreement that I will sign 24 cheques each cheques with 1340 LE which is all my monthly salary
Until I was chocked by the decisions to terminate my job on January 13

Barclays Bank - Refused to make payment arrangements when unemployed

Barclay's Bank/US Airways Dividend Miles MasterCard gave me no options when my husband was faced with unemployment. Despite years of timely payments when we were faced with a severly reduced income, we were told there were no options available to us as we did not meet the requirements for any programs. When I asked about the criteria, I was told there was none. When I asked to speak to another person, I was told a computer makes those decisions. I am stuck with 29.99% interest and a balance I will never get paid. Thanks a lot. I will never fly US Airways again or trade with Barclay's bank in any way. Shame on these credit card sharks for poor business practices. Taxpayers bail out the banks and take advantage of those who are suffering financial setbacks
