Barclaycard app & sms's

You picking up my phone this pm, I noticed 4 messages from Barclaycard. Strange I thought as I haven't contacted them.

All were to do with the app, and were authorisation codes!

So phoned them and they said someone probably just entered the wrong mobile # in there app, but I requested a new card just in-case, even though there had been no money taken from my account.

Re: Barclaycard app & sms's

I guess it is possible someone has a similar mobile number to yours, and has made a mistake and put one digit wrong and it is going to your mobile not theirs.

You done the right thing by reporting it, I wouldn't have ordered a new card though. Just keep a close eye on the transactions and report anything which you didn't do. If it happens.

Then you don't know if it is scammers, but I suspect someone made an innocent mistake.
