    BarclayPlus Account Closed?

    BarclayPlus Account Closed? 11th Aug 18 at 7:52 PM
    in January 2018 i received a letter from Barclays saying that they were closing My BarclayPlus Account with no Reason. There was a credit Balance of 2,602.36 and i went into the branch to withdraw that and i was told that my account was in review and no money could be touched in the account, So i called Fraud Investigations and they told me that The Funds in the account were fraudulent and where not mine!! I Then recieved an email 3 days later saying that i was aloud 95.98 Of the funds and the account will then be closed with immediate Impact. So i visited the branch same day, With My Passport and Bank Statements to then be told that the picture did not look like me! Baring in mind i went on holiday about 2 months ago with it no issues, I Then asked for the manager who had no issues Authorising it with no questions and then it was closed and i had PART of the funds in my account.

    What i want to know is if i can go in the branch and open another BarclayPlus Account with it being a 13 Year Old Account, The only Requirment for the System to bring it up on their Offers is Being Under 16, no credit Checks EC..
    Can i just go into A Different Branch and Tell them im not and have not been an existing customer and hope they do not look?


    Thanks

    Where did this 2,600 odd come from?

    Banks are all centralised, they'll be able to see that you've had a Barclays account before wherever you go.

    Sounds like they sent you dodgy money that's why they closed the account and took all the money...

    Even if you prove to them how you got the money etc they won't give it back to you if it's Illegal

    So they got free Phone and MacBook whilst sending you illegal money should of used Paypal allot safer

    Best thing to do is check if you got a CIFAS Marker and cut your losses

    I will say that selling expensive items like MacBooks and iPhones as a 13-year-old is really weird and I'd steer well clear of doing such things as you put yourself in a very vulnerable position doing so - a very costly lesson here.

    Taking the advice of random unknown posters on an internet forum rarely ends well.

    Why would you want to open another account with a bank that has "kept" your money?
