    Dear Mr. Thomas,
    My name is Joshline Davis. Yesterday I received a certified letter from you dated October 10, 2017 regarding a balance due to Vinyltech. The letter was left in my mailbox by, I assume, the postal service. I did not sign for it nor was I notified that I had a certified letter waiting for me at the post office since October.

    I did receive notice about an outstanding balance about 6 months ago. I replied to Vinyltech with an email explaining what I thought happened regarding payment. I never got a response back. I will attempt to explain briefly.

    My father loaned me his card to get my windows installed until my home owner’s insurance check was received. I gave Vinyltech his card information and paid back my father. It was months after the work was completed before I received word that payment was not made. I asked my father regarding if payment was ever posted to his account and he said it was but because of his advancing dementia, I asked my step mother. She explained that she paid off that card and closed it due to my father’s condition. She also told me that she waited for the windows to post to the account before paying it off and closing out the account.

    I understand because I cannot provide any proof of payment, that I am ultimately responsible for the balance. I also want to resolve this matter amicably. I would like know if I have any options. Do I get 30 days since I just got the letter? Are payment plans an option? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Joshline
