This is a genuine Nationwide number
If you have a missed call from the number 0800 281 801, please do not be concerned; this is a genuine Nationwide number. One of our consultants has tried to contact you, and was unable to talk to you on this occasion. If you dial this number you will hear a message informing you that Nationwide Building Society attempted to contact you, and that we will try again at a later date.
We tend to avoid leaving details of why we called on answering machines. This ensures we don't disclose personal information to other people who may hear the message.
