Dear Mr. Jenson:

It was a pleasant to meet you last week at the local Chamber of Commerce lunch. Your description of the work that you're company does was very interesting, and I believe that I could be able to help you. I worked as a freelance designer for several years and many of my clients in the local area and nationwide have been happy with what I did for them. I can provide several references from satisfied clients.

If you would like to discuss this, please call me at 555-555-5555 so we can make a meeting. I look forward to your response

I have been thinking about the problem that you described and believe that I might havea solution for you. I would like to meet with you to explain the idea I have and how we can progress it to benefit your company. I have attached a copy of our broshure.

Catch you later,

Ms. Ahtel

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
