RE: Case # ******** ***** ***** *******


Dear ***** ********,

I received your letter dated December 16, 2014 yesterday for the
first time. I did not receive any mail prior to this from your office and had
no idea there was a complaint submitted to the BBB by ***** *******. He
submitted a complaint to the Attorney General of WA and we responded to that
complaint on Dec. 10, 2014. On December 16, 2014, I received a letter from the
Consumer Protection Division of the Attorney General's Office that this
consumer complaint has been closed.

Attached is my letter of response to *** ********* complaint and a
copy of a refund. We both have a different understanding of the situation. Regardless
of the misunderstanding, we do our best to keep the customer satisfied, so I have
sent a refund per his opinion of the situation.
