Why pay when you can never make a claim

If I could I’d have put minus stars. Absolute joke. We had a roof that leaked, couldn’t claim. We’ve now had a leak through the conservatory, can’t claim as the winds aren’t more the 50 miles per hour?? Happy to take the money ( not the cheapest eithe...

If I could I’d have put minus stars. Absolute joke. We had a roof that leaked, couldn’t claim. We’ve now had a leak through the conservatory, can’t claim as the winds aren’t more the 50 miles per hour?? Happy to take the money ( not the cheapest either) but don’t want to pay. Absolute joke of a company. Will not be renewing with them and will advise as many people as I know not to go with them. Disgraceful.,

I was a 9years customer to this Bank in United Kingdom. I never get any single offers Such as No overdraft and No loan. Even I had good credit score. They don’t bother to check about the offers. Each time they was told me to come back.

Last 3 years again and again I went and ask about it. They are irresponsible and helpless staff. I went today and ask about my loan because of my financial difficulties if I cannot I’m going to switch. They don’t have any problems and said that’s up to you.

It was unbelievable. They never allow me to talk with the manager even. Worst bank ever in my life.

I hav gave no stars because - having banked with Barclays for 30 years, borrowed & repaid them thousands of pounds without 1 late payment, my experience of the mortgage application made me feel physically sick. They had me on the phone for nearly 2 hours - I was only looking for a small mortgage- despite them having good mortgage deals on the net they eventually offered me a rate a quarter more than them rates & after asking me what my budget was they made sure eventually that they took me right up to the top of my budget. They are sneaky snakes & I would advise avoiding them where mortgages are concerned.

visited croydon branch of Barclays today to change the address. to my surprise Barclays asked me for private information which I dont think is any of their concern (whether I own the property and whether it is furnished). apparently this is information they use for security reasons next time I visit. well I said I am not providing any sensitive infornation and We can agree on password or any other made up information. the lady said 'this is not how it works'. the message the bank sends to their customers is: either our way or no way! how do I know barclays is not selling these information to real estate agencies? how would I know if they used it for anything else? i think that kind of customer care deserves 0 stars!!!
