I have prepared for the fact that I might not win, although I would very much like to but has been factored into my plans to deal with my current debt and helping to reduce it. 


In in regards to documentation....I have been asking for specific information, which they have refused to provide me with since 2013 and not just since I received the claim. 


I’ve not received any documents or a response to my SAR.
