  13. SAMPLE ANSWER Dear Sir / Madam, I purchased a smartphone from your store, Perfect Electronics, on February 10th, 2021. It cost me BD320. At home, I realized that it was not working properly. For example, the screen went blank for a long time. Besides, most apps failed to start, even though I had tried to update them. As a result, I decided to take it back to your shop on the same day. Once there, and to my surprise, all the shop- assistants refused to replace my smartphone. They also told me that I would never get my money back, although I showed them the receipt. Attached you can find a copy of your store warranty. It clearly states that your store shall replace any devices that do not work properly. I hope you will help me get my money back. Otherwise, I will have to take further action to resolve this issue. Best Regards, Noor Ahmed Ministry of Education Second Semester 2020-2021 Eng. 202 Lesson 8.5: Study & writing skills
