The Salutation/Greeting: the formal greeting appears two lines lower than the inside address.

The Body:
In the first paragraph you should identify what the issue is and any relevant information that you believe is important.
The next paragraph should state what you would like done to resolve the situation and what you think a more appropriate response would have been in the first place.
The last paragraph should thank the reader for their time.

Complimentary Close: the complimentary close is inserted three lines below the last line of the body. The most common formulas are: Sincerely, Sincerely yours, Yours truly, Yours sincerely.

Your Signature: always use blue or black ink. Match your signature and your typed name.

Dear Sir or Madam:

I have recently ordered a new pair of soccer cleats (item #6542951) from your website on June 21. I received the order on June 26. Unfortunately, when I opened it, I saw that the cleats were used. The cleats had dirt all over them and there was a small tear in front of the part where the left toe would go. My order number is AF26168156.

To resolve the problem, I would like you to credit my account for the amount charged for my cleats; I have already went out and bought a new pair of cleats at my local sporting goods store so sending another would result in me having two pairs of the same cleats.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I have been a satisfied customer of your company for many years and this is the first time I have encountered a problem. If you need to contact me, you can reach me at (555) 555-5555.
