Dear xx ,
Thank you for your email dated 4/3/14.
Please be advised that the e-mail(s) did NOT originate from Barclays and Barclays are in no way connected with this issue which is an attempted fraud.
You should cease any further contact with these individuals and report the matter to your local police force.
From time to time fraudsters use the name of Barclays and other well-known financial institutions to try to con people out of money. Such scams have been around for many years but unfortunately criminals still continue their efforts to defraud people. Use of the Internet is just another means that the criminals use given that it has made it easier for them to reach large numbers of potential victims around the world.
E-mail messages are sent out by the fraudsters to tempt people with promises of large cash pay-outs in exchange for a small advance payment. This is known as an advanced fee fraud or a 419 scam.
The email may appear to be from a foreign government, agency or lottery fund that offers to transfer millions of pounds into the persons bank account. Often the email will appear to come from a senior bank executive. The fraudsters may also provide copies of documents or cheques as proof of authenticity, these are fakes and were produced fraudulently.
If you or your company believe you have received an email of this type:
- Do not assume that the senders email address is genuine. The fraudsters will often use an account at a free email provider, which you can tell by reviewing the properties of the address.
- Do not respond to the sender.
- Do not pay any money.
- If a telephone number, account number or address is provided within the e-mail forward the details to the police
- If you have paid money report the matter to your local police station.
- Further information on these type of e-mails and what you can do to help combat fraud can be obtained from our web site:
- If you think you have received a fraudulent email that looks like it is from Barclays, please forward the entire email including the header and footer to firstname.lastname@example.org and then delete it from your email account.
