    What's the APR on the cards and the limits on them?

    You'll need to get a settlement figure for the loan to know how much you need to pay to clear it - it won't be 262x45.

    What's your credit history like and have you checked your credit report to ensure everything's in order there?

    Yes, more info needed.

    The OP is a newbie and probably can't find the post again.

    Another brilliant move by the site admin to switch off the default thread subscription option to "do not subscribe"
