Re: Billing Error

There is a billing error on my {place month here} periodic statement in the amount of ${place dollar amount here}

I believe this is an error because {describe the error and explain why you believe there is an error}

or use the following paragraph instead

I need more information about line item {place the line item number or description here} as I am unable to determine from my records what the charge is for. Please send copies of any documents you have pertaining to this item.

I also understand that I may refuse to pay those portions of my debt that are in dispute however, I must continue to make minimum payments on any undisputed portion of my debt in accordance with the terms outlined in my disclosure statement.
