Barclays Bank – Payment received


Many of our clients have been receiving emails purporting to be from Barclays Bank. The email advises that a payment (for differing amounts) has been credited to your account. Contained as an Attachment, a ZIP file shows as the payment remittance.

Needless to say, the email is a fake and the ZIP file contains a virus. Delete this email without opening it. I have shown here what the email looks like.
