BARCLAYS Bank has come under fire after offering just £250 in compensation to customers whose confidential files were stolen and sold to rogue City traders. At least 2,000 of the bank’s customers were affected by the theft, which included details of their earnings, savings, health issues and insurance policies. It resulted in many customers being inundated with cold calls from unidentified brokers. Barclays says it has contacted all customers affected and provided compensation for “distress and inconvenience.” However, one customer described the compensation as “chicken feed”. According to national media, a number of customers have been given higher sums after complaining about the amount initially awarded. Are you one of the 2,000 Barclays customers affected by the data theft? Let us know by commenting on the story below.
