    How can obtain my Doral Bank account statements before my account was transferred on May 2015 to Banco Popular.

    I only can obtain the account statements from Banco Popular since it was opened on May 2015 and I URGENTLY NEED various statements previous to May 2015, including 2014, & 2013.

    Previous to the Banco Popular opening, the transfer from Doral Bank on May 2015, I had access to my Doral Bank account through internet. This no longer exists.

    Kindly provide your support and assistance as I need THESE STATEMENTS THAT ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN MY BANCO POPULAR ACCOUNT SITE.

    Waiting for your help, please these is needed as backup evidence for payments made.
