Dear Sir or Madam,



I am writing to complain about your advertisement about the new game that gives everyone the chance to win which I found misleading.



My first complain is that you said there would be big cash prizes. In fact, there is only one chance of winning the prize. If I had known that, I would not have entered. My second complain is that you said the cost of the game is very low, but in my opinion FUNTE 5 a game is not such a small amount of money. Not many people can afford it.



The problems did not stop there. Furthermore, I found out that all the money does not go to the charity. Even worse, 50 per cent of it goes on administration. I must ask you to explain me where the money really goes.



If I do not get a satisfactory reply, I will have to contact the media. I hope that in future you will be more careful with what you are saying.

Yours faithfully
Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to complain about your advertisement for a new game that gives everyone the chance to win, which I believe to be misleading.

My first complaint is that you state there would be big cash prizes. In fact, there is only one chance of winning and only ONE cash prize. If I had been aware of this, I would not have entered the game. Secondly, you say that the cost of the game is very low, but in reality FUNTE 5 is not only not cheap, but very pricey. It is far above the average persons price range and their idea of 'very low'.

The problems do not stop there. You claim to be beneficial to charities and play on the idea of virtue, however, I find that your 'administrative' fees swallow up 50% of the money, which is excessive.

I shall expect a satisfactory explanation from yourselves regarding this misleading promotion or shall feel it necessary to contact the relevant advertising Ombudsman and the media. I hope that in future, you shall be far more careful on the accuracy of your promotions and the tone of language which you employ.

Yours faithfully

I love writing letters of complaint and regularly used to persecute my local council. Unfortunately, my wife now works for the Council, so I can't harrass them anymore. Also, and this may shock you, but most 'charities' have excessive costs, and very little money donated actually goes to the cause. In Britain, charities are big business, employing thousands of people and swallowing a small fortune in donations. Gone are the old days when retired people gave their time free and most donations went to the people they should be helping. Oxfam, one of the biggest and oldest charities in the world, has approximately 17% admin costs, which is one of the smallest. Others take costs upto 75%. Some charity chairpeople are paid £100,000s for running their charities.

Good luck with your complaint.
thanks on correction Emotion: smile

p.s. i must write it "excatly" (the idea must be the same as one in the book) as i wrote because that was one of the task in my book. that wasn't my personal opinion Emotion: smile
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
i think you did good but nstead of complain it's complaint
Anonymousi think you did good but nstead of complain it's complaint
I think you did well but instead of complain it's complaint.

Instead of "explain me" it should be explain to me.
