Nationwide IT meltdown
Customers of Nationwide have been having a nightmare trying to use their mobile banking, after the building society suffered a breakdown on their IT services this morning, with millions unable to do what they need to do with their accounts.
On their website, a statement says: "We're sorry to have to tell you that your Online Bank is unavailable. We are making every effort to restore service as quickly as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause you."
Of course, this has seen a lot of people venting spleen on the internet, saying all the usual stuff you'd expect in a scenario like this.
Some customers have said that they've not been able to access their account since Friday, which is pretty rotten. It does seem, however, that everything is fine if you want to withdraw money from a cash machine and things seem okay if you want to make a card payment in a shop.
What will irritate customers of the Nationwide, is that this has happened before, with a similar glitch occurring in 2013.
Anyway, if you have any pressing concerns, get to your local branch or get in touch with them on the phone or by email. Contacts are available here.
