Its not the Barclays website its been spoofed....

How secure is secure. Speaking to my Barclay's personal banker yesterday, and he didn't mention this (;o(

As I've said elsewhere, anyone stupid enough to fall for such a scam deserves all they get...

A very rash statement, and unfair with it.

We all have minor errors of judgement and from what I hear this scam is very persuasive.

It will be interesting to find out how it is possible to counter such threats.

This one may be relatively easy for an experienced user to avoid but there will be many who do not have sufficient experience or to much trust in what appears to be kosher.

And the perpetrators will become more experienced over time, so a strategy must be created (if it has not already been so) to mitigate or negate such a creation.

the wife told me about this yesterday been on the news or something, the advice given was just not to use online banking for the time being..check your banks homepage for latest news, and if re-directed, disconnect.
