30 June 200X
Dear Mr Chan
I am sorry to inform you that a recent incident has negatively affected my good impression of the Bank.
Allow me to explain. On 10 June 200X, I received my monthly Visa card statement. Unfortunately, as I was on a business trip in mid-June, I was unable to send a cheque to settle my account until 22 June 200X.
Then, on the evening of 26 June 200X, I had dinner with friends. Afterwards I tried to pay the bill of HKD3,200 using my Visa card but it was rejected three times. In the end, to my great embarrassment, my guests had to pay the bill for me.
Could you please look into this matter. I thought I had a credit limit of HKD20,000. If this is the case, why was it not made available to me after I settled the June statement?
I am unhappy that the Bank has let an incident like this affect its services.
