Beware of this credt card provider!!!
I have had a few credit cards before but found issues with Barclaycard from the start, first of all I got a text from them saying 'now you have recieved your card please activate' I called them as I had not received my card and was assured it was sent in error, I then got my card and activated it a few days later and made one purchase with it online with a reputable retailer and paid it off 2 days later but the next morning I got a text from Barclaycard saying they suspected fraudulent activity on my account so I called them to find out someone had indeed tried to use my card to shop online with a clothing website I have never ordered anything from so Barclaycard did decline the transaction but this has made me quite worried with how secure they actually are! I have had 4 or 5 credit cards in the past 2 years and have never had someone get hold of my card details before so Barclaycard must not have enough security procedures in place, I suspect that very first text I got saying I had received my card was not sent in error I think they may have actually registered a card to me then sent it to someone else by mistake. Also at the time I thought nothing of it but I got a text from them also referring to my Barclaycard platinum credit card and the benefits of it but I had a rewards card not a platinum card so I am now wondering if they have also opened another credit card in my name and sent to someone else too!
