Barclays Supercon Robot Scam Advert

Barclays Supercon Robot

Barclays UK has released its Christmas advert, highlighting that they will help you defeat online fraudsters this holiday season.

The 30-second spot introduces Supercon, described as “this year’s must-have toy”, a robot that is the defender of the Galaxy, complete with powerful disk cannon and realistic sound jetpack.

When Supercon (who is a web exclusive £1.99 toy) gets the chance to speak, he interrupts his speech, saying: “Oh, you know what, I can’t do this. It’s all rubbish. It’s a scam. If you order me, you’ll get nothing.” He also advises people to look for a padlock near the website name, before they make an online payment, and always check the seller is genuine”.

“You don’t want to get scammed by a fake site.” – Supercon adds and then the voiceover says “Defeat online fraudsters this Christmas”.
