Sample Answer

Dear Sir/Madam, I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with the inferior quality of a mobile phone which I bought from your renowned store last week. The first malfunction that I noticed in the phone was its short battery life. Its battery discharges within an hour of charging. Apart from that, the device becomes extremely hot when I charge it. I found another problem when I clicked some photos. Even though this phone has an eight mega pixel camera, the photos were terribly blurred. Initially, I thought my hand shook while taking the pictures. But, even after keeping the phone in a fixed position, the same problem persisted. You can imagine how unhappy I was to discover these technical faults in such an expensive model. Naturally, I contacted the store to report the problem. Your representative said that this model was out of stock and I would have to wait for a week for replacement. Unfortunately, I did not receive any information about the new stock arrival in the last three weeks. When I called the representative, he was unable to give a sensible answer to me. I am very disappointed with both the equipment and the service I have received. Therefore, I expect a full refund of 30,000 rupees as soon as possible. I look forward to hearing from you. Yours faithfully, Priya Chamoli
