    Hi,

    We could only guess what the interview could be about, i'd advice you to ring the number on the letter tomorrow and ask what it's about.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Do you have a friend or a family member that can go with you to your bank? or are you able to order statements from your online banking? You will need to take statements with you to the interview because it asks you to take them.

    As it's a compliance interview then someone could have reported you for something but you won't know for sure until you ring and ask.

    Hi have you asked your bank for copies of your statements.?
    If you can't get them off your bank a library is a good place to ask. You would have to pay for you copies
