"Balances are almost impossible to get from them, also redemption figures takes an eternity. A monthly or thereabouts interest falling letter is all I have had which has a projected figure and an element of actual interest, I have never and it doesn't look likely had a proper balance showing transactions.
A good old fashioned bank statement is all I asked for. Not possible.
Apparently the balance is irrelevant, " just pay roughly what you were paying before"
They are debt collectors, but saying that I would expect them to freeze interest payments if they wanted fast repayments and reductions of outstanding loans.
Just remember that you are due them the money and they are not like any high street bank, no relationship manager will be able to assist you, if you want that kind of service go elsewhere (if you can!)."
