Additional Notes

Complaint: I have requested backup information to document the excessive or unauthorized charges. I am looking for phone company logs, expense receipts, E-mails, and etc. The firm did not communicate with me on a daily basis of expenses being served. Therefore I am challenging the invoice number XXXXX dated January 9, 2014.

Desired Settlement: I would like the invoice #XXXXX to have the proper documents for backup or there he invoice is completely removed.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 17, 2014/04/16) */ Hi *********, Mr. ***** refers to Invoice #XXXXX which you will find attached. From his letter it seems like he would like me to zero out the balance. Here's what I think is fair and this is what we always do when there is a question about an invoice. I can have all his invoices resent to him, he look them over and mark up and make notes about any time entry that he feels is incorrect and send them back to me for review. I will then look over his notes and gladly give him full credit for any improper time entry. I will have my billing office send the invoices in the morning. Thank you *********.
