Technical glitch stops Barclays customers from making payments

26 October 2015

Barclays-PA Are you a Barclays customer, are you weren't able to make a payment over the weekend? Don't worry - you're not going mad, and indeed, you're not magically skint all of a sudden.

The bank has been hit with a technical problem which stopped a number of payments going through, which started on Saturday and continued into yesterday (and in some cases, today too) thanks to some routine maintenance that happened thanks to the clocks going back.

A Barclays spokesperson said: "We can confirm that customer services are now recovering from the outage we experienced yesterday. We apologise to customers for any inconvenience caused."

On social media, some customers were worried that this was all the result of a cyber attack, after the massive hack over at TalkTalk. It wasn't. Stop being so jumpy. The Barclays spokesperson confirmed it wasn't a cyber attack, should you need the official word on it.

So worry not. Everything should be working AOK with your account now. If not, you might have spent all your money on kebabs and tinfoil hats.
