    where on my experian account can i find details of 14th Mar 18 at 8:42 PM
    hello

    trying to track down a loan from over six years ago - no paper work, cant remember who the lioan was with. on Martins news letter today he said you could try tracing such loans with credit files such as experian. So ive joined experian and cant see where prrvous loans are listed - thats if they go back that far. I am possibly looking in the wrong place as I cant see ANY loans etc
    Where would it be on the dash board. Any other credit agencies you would recommend?

    As you cant remember who it was with then its pointless looking.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    yes that was what i thought - im helping a friend, its not my loan and we had given up on it but the PPI article on the MSE newsletter this morning raised a glimmer of hope with saying it might be on a credit report.
    Ah well, time to give up with this one I think
