I bank with Barclays and have done for a lot of years. I have had a message on my phone:

'HALIFAX: An unauthorised payment was attempted to a new payee from a new device. If this is not you cancel this payment via halifax-authentic.com'

Is this a scam? If so how can they get any money from me with this? Sorry to seem so naïve but I am a bit paranoid about things like this

yes it is a scam
They're asking you to log in to a scam website where they will ask for your bank details. Halifax bank is nothing to do with you; just delete the message.
A warning from a bank that you don't even bank with is fairly obviously nothing more than a phishing attempt.

Still not convinced? Here's a screenshot of what I see in my browser if I try to go to that web address:

Googling halifax-authentic.com gives me a dire warning about deceptive site ahead. Just delete it, GG. Ignore it.
