    Anyone else got this Barclaycard missed payment message? (see 1st post)

    Logged into my Barclaycard account today to check out if my new freedom reward transactions were showing up online and was confronted by this message. I have a direct debit set up with my bank to take the full amount each month and there is more than enough money in my bank account to cover the month as I hardly use my Barclaycard credit card. When I check my bank account I can see the direct debit has been taken (full amount) so can only think there is a glitch on their website. Is anyone else receiving it as well? I'd hate to think that Barclaycard are marking my credit file with a non-payment.

    OMG at your credit limit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I dont have any credit cards - never have, but could see myself reaching that limit in a weekend!!! (and thats why I have never had a credit card!!)

    I'm sure it's just a general warning ,if you fail to make payment or anything , you get charged £12.00.
    Yes , just look at that credit limit ..............I've had a Barclaycard for 25 years and still dont have a limit anywhere near that .........................wouldn't want one like that either mind , I could get an awfull lot of beer for that !

    Give them a buzz they'll refund the charge, if not you should get with Lloyds TSB.

    been moaning to them for the last 6 months plus about this.
    Started when they took over morgan stanley and made you sign in on there site.
    now its on there side if the site as well

    There will be no charge they are working on it and beats my limit by £300.00
    My MBNA card was £31000.00 and a bit.
    How mad is that

    I've had them refund charges in the past when this happened about 6 years ago but when I called them today they told me to ignore the message. They told me I'd need to contact Experian to find out if they have marked my credit file!

    So has no-one else got this message or does no-one else use Barclaycard here?

    RE high credit limit, I asked them to increase the limit so that I could purchase several high value items. Only just started using it again because of this new Freedom cashback campaign that's just started.

    Ah that would make sense. I've never seen that message before but then I haven't had any reason to check my statement online last 6 months either.

    Can't match your £31,000 credit limit but can say Halifax offered offered me a £18,000 overdraft when I opened a reward current account not too long ago!!

    I should have got my statement 3 days ago,,,,,,,,still not arrived. I reckon there are problems at Barclays
