Another early B5 from about that same time ALSO plummeted 3 notches. It just made an on-time payment, however.

No other defaults so far.
I currently have 19 notes. They're all chugging along. The excitement seems to have worn off for me. I check my account once every two weeks or so and purchase a new note whenever I have enough in the account to do so. I haven't transferred any money into my account since November.

Since I opened my LC account 5 months ago, I've received $114.33 in payments, of which $19.24 is interest. This is on my $500 investment which, according to my calculations means that my effective interest rate is 9.4%, which is much, much better than I can get from any bank. Maybe I should just take the plunge and throw $10,000 in there.

Does anyone know someone with a large LC account?
