A description of the issue :


Barclays bank agreed to make an international transfer GBP 65,000 from my current account to an overseas property developer .

( my wife and I were buying a small flat and had already paid a deposit on it).


Barclays did that in the branch and gave me the proof of transfer.


Next morning I checked on line and found that the transfer had not gone through.


Instead the balance of my current account from the previous day ( GBP 69,000 ) had been taken out with a description “TO RECONCILE” and so my balance was now zero.

when was this ?

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi Joseph and welcome to CAG


This is not uncommon and will almost certainly be related to Anti Money Laundering Regs.


We've seen many cases over the years. Usually you'll be told little or nothing for a few days and then the funds will either re-appear in your a/c or turn up in the destination a/c.


I believe the bank is not allowed to tell you any details while investigations are conducted.


Other threads are here in the Barclays forum over the last 5 to 10 years. It will take time but you can find them.


If the property transaction is time-sensitive, I suggest you inform the interested parties that the bank appears to be Anti Money Laundering checks and your money will be slightly delayed, hopefully for just a few days.


If I recall correctly, cases tend to be resolved within 10 days. However, nothing you do is likely to affect anything or speed up the process.



We could do with some help from you
