There was a problem in opening a bank account for Lime Daley, I think they typed in my social security number wrong. This is the letter that they sent back to me explaining why my account had been closed.
Dear Mr. Daley,
I am writing in regards to the checking account that was opened in February. We have tried to contact you on several occasions about the account not being uploaded because of information that needed to be put in the system. Due to our time frame of it now coming to a month we will have to send you an Official Check in the amount of your opening deposit for $50.00. When you receive this check, please feel free to give us a call @ 412-687-2433. We would like to keep you as a valued client and @ your convience we would like to have you process this information correctly. Sorry for the inconvience this may have caused and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to give us @ call at the above number.

I first saw the '@' signs, and then Heather pointed out that one was used in the wrong place. Then I noticed the misspellings and odd sentence construction. Of course, my grammar isn't the best, but it seems like they could have done a better job on a form letter.

Unbelievable. I'd like to call this evidence that the job was offshored to India...but I'm afraid the Indians' command of the English language is often better than that of most Americans.

Wow, is that really a "formal" letter from a bank? I'm speechless. If those guys deal with your money as well as they write English... good luck. You're going to need it!
