Barclays Bank / Unable to withdraw funds even though money available

1 Carshalton, England, Surrey, United Kingdom Review updated:

My husband and I tried to withdraw some of our available funds from our joint account as my husband needed the money for his jury service at the Old Bailey, as we were waiting for our request to be processed the ATM said " we were not able to process your transaction"

We went into the local branch on the following morning to find out what was happening and had to take my money out over the counter, I have contacted the call centre on many occasions only not to get anywhere. This had been going on for 4 days and I have finally managed to sort it out! How many calls does it take to an Indian call centre to get this problem fixed!!!

    Barclays Bank - Customer reps are terrible
    Barclays Bank
    United States
    www.barclays.co.uk

    After spending approximately 1 hour on the phone with customer reps who do not speak English well or were coached in how to not understand plain English I am completely mystified. All I wanted to do was to add my wife's account to the same internet payment system as I have for my two other accounts. This process apparently blew the reps mind. The first rep tried to tell me that I had to change the pay-or account facility. The second rep directed me to the web site twice and said that I had to set up a new account. The web site failed to accept the new information and then referred me back to the help line.

    Suggestion for Barclays-use American/English speaking reps for American customers. The two dollars an hour more you would pay an American rep would result in a lot less pissed off customers and certainly would speed up the resolution of similar problem.

    I w will avoid using this card from now on.

    I was just on the phone with a rude rep. from Barclays. I have auto payments for my credit card and they failed to take payment out for April. Then they tried to take a double payment out in May without my consent. I was speaking with one customer service rep. when a supervisor named (Darren) piped in and stated, "so you think you dont have to pay your bills"?)
    That is not the issue. They cant just double bill someone without them knowing about it!!! Then Darren proceeds to tell me that if I did not make this double payment I would be reported to the credit bureau. He stated that Barclays was doing me a favor by not reporting me already. ( they were the ones who never drafted my account!!!)

    This clown then proceeds to tell me there is no one else available to help me and customer service probably would not talk with me on the phone until I paid the $250.

    I called back later and spoke with an ignorant woman named Eva. She refused to let me speak with a supervisor and even laughed at my request.

    What has this world come too??

    Barclays Bank - Overcharged
    Barclays Bank
    United States
    barclays.com

    The branch of barclays branch in bishop auckland told me at the manned cubicles that my account had over ten pounds more in the account than i actually did according to their phone services hours before logging this report. i paid for something online that was of the balance of around nine pounds. i since have had two reserve fees of 22 pounds added which has made my account over fifty pounds overdrawn, i have had a blind refusal to pay it back, another complaint has been logged after i had already complained about it previously and they had labeled the file RESOLVED!!!. this is in total the 17th error on their part in 6 months, many of which i have had to pay for. last time they let money to the tun e of 123.00 come out and racked up the charges to 890.00 over four months with no other contributing factors. they are criminals!!!. they do deserve to go to court for their actions which are the actions of profiteering con artists. i would not run a business that way and nor should they really. DO NOT OPEN AN ACCOUNT WITH THEM, it costs more to bank with them than goes into your account and they have ruined my credit rating. i have no other debts or blacklisting with anyone and do not deserve this stress. no-one needs the hassle that goes with banking with them, i don't do bitter but a rip off is a rip off and this site was designed for a company like barclays to be found out.

    Barclays Bank - Transfer of pensioon
    Barclays Bank
    United Kingdom

    I receive my pension through the Barclays and in November2007, for some reason or another, they still have not informed me, they stopped transferring my pension for three months, I have a standing order with them, so I called and called and called, spending hours on the phone with no results, I mean the money is mine, not theirs for heaven sake, after many calls, letters, faxes, etc. I had my standing order started again, hurrah! after being promised that it would not happen again, what's my surprise they have stopped transferring my pension again in November 2017, now its January 2017 and they still haven't sent me my money, which according to a bank statement they sent, is in my bank account. I phoned and ofcourse they cannot do anything. WHY? I don't know, they don't know either, so who knows why it was stopped? They promise to investigate, to call back. NOTHING. I promise that nobody will ever hear a kind word about Barclays Bank from me. My name is Mrs M.N.P. Trillo and I'm having economical problems because Barclays Bank is keeping my money. Never, ever, open an account in Barclays.

    Barclays Bank - Stolen cheqye
    England, Greater London
    United Kingdom

    I have been having problems with barclays last years, after banking with them for 5years, I request a cheque book from them, and it never got to me for some reason someone got hold of my cheque book and started issuing cheque from my cheque book, knowing that it is not my signature they still accept the cheques. I went through so much stress I had to contact them on many occasion to cancel the cheques and they didn't at my 1st class, I had to cry and complaint that I need my money to pay my rent and therefore I was entitled to an emergency overdraft I was told no. I request another cheque book and I told them I will collect it in branch and and the customer advisor told me she can't do it, so therefore I asked her to cancel it, and she didn't received the cheque book, but a 2nd cheque book was issued after the one I request without me asking for a 2nd cheque book!Which is wrong and they should not do this!I need to take it further for compensation because I am sick and tierd of this stupid bank!

    Totally agree with you they rip people off, I complained about some 8 pound charges some of which were for small transactions under a pound, because I'd gone over my reserve limit. Common sense wasn't in their books despite me having an account with them for over 20 years. As in your case they said my case was resolved, absolute rubbish it was resolved according to them, they are crooks, total crooks.

    Why not try the Financial Ombudsman Service? No cost; impartial; authoritative - and they can award damages.

    Same here, but in my case, it was a wait of over two months, while I was stranded in SE Asia [without a return ticket]. I've gone to the Financial Ombudsman!

    Barclays Bank - Worst bank in the world
    United States

    Barclay's Bank is officially the worst bank I have ever dealt with. My credit card was transferred to Barclay's Bank about 6 months ago and ever since I have had nothing but problems. Currently, they have cashed 2 payments totally $1500.00 and it's 45 days since I have filled a complaint and there is still no credit to my account or update on the case. I have called in to their Customer Service Department 10+ times with no success. They have even hung up on me before after asking to speak with a supervisor.

    BEWARE OF BARCLAY'S BANK! DO NOT EVER OPEN AN ACCOUNT OR CREDIT CARD WITH THIS COMPANY. I HAVE NOW BEEN TRYING TO CLOSE MY ACCOUNT FOR 45 DAYS AND HAVE HAD LITTLE TO NO CUSTOMER SERVICE.
