Woman screaming at laptop

TO: Ajax Computer Corp.
FROM: Katya Karnov
SUBJECT: Broken computer

I am writing to request a replacement for a computer I bought a year ago that has already stopped working. I took it to the repair shop and they said it was a problem with the motherboard and would cost so much to fix, I might as well get a new computer. I've lost the original receipt but I did buy the extended warranty plan so I should be able to get it replaced. Please let me know how to exchange this one for a new one that works.

Thanks,
Katya
