Not so. The number is genuine. If still in any doubt call the number on the back of your card.

Yep -Fraud
Yes this is fraud. Received a letter in the post looking rather official. Looking at it now, they have caught me off guard.

Asked security clearance questions...so they know my DOB address, place of birth and country of birth. Thankfully nothing else. They claimed I my card was blocked which was weird.

I think someone within Barlcays is on this. Why? I recently applied for a new card....coincidental. And idiot here, didn't pick up on the spelling mistake.

ONLY RING THE NUMBERS published on the back of your debt card or visit a branch.!!!

This is a valid barclays number!!
I received a text asking to call this number and my first thought was that it must be a scam, so I decided to call their fraud number (from their website) 0845 7555 555 and after going through security they confirmed they had sent the texts and that someone had spent £90 on my debit card!
Please call the number on Barclays' website if you are unsure. I did and I'm glad I did, as they are refunding me the£90 tomorrow.

Legit
I didn't call the number given in the SMS I received, instead went to Barclays website, and got the number for their fraud department.

As others have said, this number is 0845 7555 555 from 7am to 11pm daily.

After asking me a number of security questions (I was confortable answering them as it was the number on their website I phoned), they then asked me about some recent transactions, so be sure to have your statement in front of you when you call them.

They then asked about a recent online payment to Crocs (who are in another country to me), which I was aware of, but that was the reason my card was blocked and why I received the SMS.

They then said that my card would be unblocked and ready to use in 5 minutes.

I am not confirming the validity of the 0800 number, but my card was indeed blocked so, if this happens to you, c.all Barclays direct on the number on their website.

is a correct number for Barclays
Just spoke to Barclays on this number, as a result of receiving a text. I then called back via my premier banking number and double checked the conversation I had via 0800 085 1721 was legitimate, and it was. Confirmed as a good number.
