I’ve just bought something over the net using my Barclaycard. As usual, the checkout screen bounces me to a Barclaycard verification screen. As usual it asks me for several letters from my password. As usual my password doesn’t work. As usual I reset the password. Not as usual, the screen then asks me for the 9th letter of my password when I only set an 8 character password. Phone call later my password is reset again. I complete my order. I have to rest my password, but can’t use the one I set previously as it “has been used to recently”.
If I was a thief I really couldn’t be arsed to go through this when I could just mug a granny in the street. I see now how Barclaycard security works. It bores people out of commiting credit card fraud… Sigh…
One thought on “Barclaycard Security: So boring it works…”
At kid’s soccer game Saturday it came out that many people got 4:30AM “your credit card has been locked, please press 1” calls. They then ask you to enter your credit card number… must be in cahoots with the Ambien folk.
