Scam Alert: Fake Barclaycard Fraud Department Calls from 855-608-8509
I received a phone call purporting from Barclaycard Fraud Department. The pre-recorded message was telling me that there was a suspicious transaction on my account. It then asked me to enter the full account number of my Barclaycard. There are no other options to talk to a person without entering the full 16-digit card number. It is really suspicious.
I knew immediately that it is a scam because I do not have a Barclaycard account.
I contacted Barclays and the representative confirmed that it is a known scam.
