1. If you contact us about any concerns and if we have been unable to resolve your complaint by the end of the following business day after we have received it, we will send you a letter to acknowledge receipt of your complaint. We will consider all factors you have raised and we may need to contact you for further information.
2. We will try to resolve your concerns as soon as we can and let you know what we are going to do to reach a satisfactory conclusion. Where we cannot resolve matters immediately, we will carry out an investigation and this will be detailed in a response letter to you. This letter is called the "Final Response".
3. The Final Response should be sent to you within 8 weeks from receipt of your complaint. If, we are not able to issue a response by this time, we will send you an update and let you know how you can refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service should you wish to do so. We will also enclose a leaflet explaining this process or for more information, please refer to www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk. However, in the meantime we will continue with our investigation and issue the Final Response as soon as possible.
If at any stage during our investigation you would like to escalate the complaint further, please let us know.
If your complaint relates to a Short-Term Loan, we are members of the Consumer Finance Association (CFA) who can also assist you. The CFA can be contacted in writing at the following address:

What if you remain Dissatisfied?
If you are still dissatisfied after receiving the Final Response letter and if your complaint relates to the provision of credit or Western Union money transfer; you can refer your concerns to the Financial Ombudsman Service for an independent review.
You must refer your complaint to the Financial Ombudsman Service within 6 months of receiving our Final Response.
