A friend of mine just went to buy petrol and Barclays won’t let her take out cash or pay for anything on card. It said that the financial institution is unavailable?

Also the phone banking just cuts off and the internet banking returns saying they are having technical difficulties?

Anyone else having an issue?

Their online banking site is up the Swannee.
At the risk of waking up and bringing to planet earth the conspiracy theorists, it was a bit strange when they recently trousered £13billion from the rushed sale of their stable and profitable Barclays Global Investors which included the Ishares brand (also in a good position). hey ho then.

Looks as if it is a general problem. We all know what computers are like!

Yeah its not just the internet banking tho. My friend is a young mum and currently she is unable to buy fuel as all card transactions have been stopped as well. Luckily being the nice guy I am I have lent her a few bob.

It's finally happened. The planet can no longer function without the internet.

She was worried that Barclays had gone down the pan as well!

She was very worried for a while though, not being able to withdraw her money from cash machines or allowed to purchase anything on her card, not being able to look on the internet at her money or even ring up.

Modern technology eh!

'She was very worried for a while though, not being able to withdraw her money from cash machines or allowed to purchase anything on her card, not being able to look on the internet at her money or even ring up'..and this is what our lives have been distilled to on this planet. Sad.

Surely one could get cash at a branch?
