We are aware of a letter circulating to an unknown number of our customers purporting to be from Barratt Developments PLC and asking for the Barratt bank account details to be changed. We have no immediate plans to change any bank account details so any letter asking for such changes should be treat as fraudulent and not actioned. Any such letters should be sent to email@example.com. Please direct any queries regarding this to your normal Barratt contact.
