Good afternoon. Just to be clear, the repayment of debt was to be done "as soon as possible" and you never got anything from them, in writing, as to a timeline? Have they advised you as to the delay in all this?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
