Certains clients bancaires en ligne ont reçu des courriels supposés provenir de la banque Barclays leur demandant de confirmer leur adresse électronique en saisissant les détails de leur compte avec le mot de passe et le mot à mémoriser.

Le lien contenu dans les courriels peut à première vue sembler légitime. Pourtant, il s'agit d'une escroquerie pour subtiliser les détails des comptes des utilisateurs et éventuellement obtenir un accès illégal aux comptes.

Voici une version type de ce courriel :
