Most likely it is a scam phishing for account details.If as you say you don'y have a Barclaycard then there is no reason to be concerned.

I get the same for banks that I've never been with.

Every US bank has suspended my account! And not a week passes that my Paypal account does not get restricted.
My nephew (who does not drive and has never had a passport) keeps getting messages related to buying a car in the USA.
Just waiting for someone to ring and offer to get me a refund on my lost Thomas Cook holiday. Never booked a holiday with them in my life and cant remember when I last went on a package holiday.

I keep getting messages purporting to be from DHL saying that they have been unable to deliver my package. Get several a week; I must be the world’s busiest online shopper!

My credit limit was lowered and I was threatened with my Barclaycard being suspended because of low use. It was a genuine email. I only use it where Amex is not accepted.

Happy with lower limit as they raised it anyway!

If you wish to take it further, you can forward similar e-mails to the fraud department of the bank. Usually you never hear whether it did any good.
