    Woh, i use that all the time,

    its so like the real site, which is www.ibank.barclays.co.uk and www.barclays.co.uk!!!

    The only differnence is the prompt, i use cookies to store my details and the dodgy one asks for all your details in a very convincing way!!

    Consider that NO bank EVER asks for the complete password or security number in a single sitting. Most will ask for a few letters at a time.

    I ONLY ever use the ibank address, like it because it's dynamic in my browser's history, but I always check it over. The other site is VERY cleverly made, and I'd imagine it being very easy to replicate. Wonder how many people have been caught out on it? Total sh!t as a lot of people are just coming round to internet shopping and banking (those sticklers that never like it in the first place) and then they may encounter this and think all is 'legit' d!ckheads [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    i always put www.ibank.barclays.co.uk directly into the address bar! Never go in through links.

    Re: BEWARE OF THIS SCAM!!!!!

    That's shocking

    Just showed both websites to a colleague who banks with Barclays. He couldn't believe it!

    It's interesting on the fake site that the forgotten password link doesn't work? Wonder why?

    Rich how did you send them messages? I tried the contact us link and it's broken?
