RE: Bank Loan Repayment Issues

To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing to inform you that I am currently facing a temporary delinquency issue with regard to my monthly loan payment.

I originally borrowed $10,000 to supplement my savings when my house was damaged during last year’s tornado. I needed the money to make extensive repairs and was very grateful to your bank for helping me out during this very difficult time.

The loan repayment schedule was structured, so I would only pay about $340/month, including a 3% interest rate, over a period of 30 months.

Unfortunately, this month I am unable to meet my repayment obligation. I have been under the weather for a full 3 weeks, and my employer has refused to pay me for my leave. This situation has reduced my salary to a fourth of what it should be; however, this is only a temporary setback, and I should be back on my feet soon and able to make my scheduled payments next month.

I look forward to hearing from you.

RE: Gym Services issues

Dear Mr. Williams,

I have been an active member of “FitReady Gym” for the last 2 months. I was initially impressed by the attractive, exclusive and distinguished facilities you appeared to be offering  including the personal trainer, sauna, pool, and Christmas special mentioned in the local newspaper. I enrolled for my annual membership beginning in January.

To my utter disappointment, I have not been able to get the featured services. Despite multiple attempts to access a personal trainer, I haven’t been able to get hold of any, due, apparently, to  insufficient staff. The unhygienic condition of the Sauna is deplorable, and the pool has been closed as a result of technical issues.

Needless to say, I am thoroughly disappointed. I have tried to bring my concerns to the local manager’s attention, but to no avail. He has made no attempt to rectify the situation and has added fuel to the fire with petty excuses. Had I known I would receive an ‘ordinary’ rather than ‘exclusive’ experience at your gym, I would have chosen something more inexpensive.

I suggest you look into this matter and make any necessary arrangements to provide the exclusive facilities mentioned in the advertisement. If this is not possible, please cancel my membership and refund the complete fees.

I really hope that you deal with these issues and take steps to provide the excellent customer service that I, as a member of your gym, deserve.
