I am writing to express my strong dissatisfaction with the service I have received from your company. Please find enclosed a camcorder, which I am returning to you as you have sent me the wrong model.
I ordered and paid by credit card for, a model C20. however, when I received my delivery and opened the box, I realized I had been sent the wrong product. I specifically wanted the C20 model so that I could use my existing videocassettes, which do not fit the camcorder you have sent.
I would also like to point out that the camcorder you have sent to me is listed as being 30 pounds cheaper than the one I ordered. When I received my credit card statement last week I realized that I had been overcharged by 30 pounds.
I insist on a full refund for the camcorder. I hope that I will not be forced to take further action and that this matter will be resolved immediately.

· Machines can be of use to people but they can’t replace them as they can’t think.
· People are trying to make machines think but they don’t seem to care if they can improve their way of thinking.
Jules Verne was a French man who wrote science fiction novels. He wrote 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Five Weeks in a Balloon, From Earth to the Moon, and Around the World in Eighty Days. His books are so popular because they inspire people’s imaginations and give them a glimpse of what the future may be like.
