In your letter, give us the following information:
You must contact us:
You must notify us of any potential errors in writing. You may call us, but if you do we are not required to investigate any potential errors and you may have to pay the amount in question.
When we receive your letter, we must do two things:

After we finish our investigation, one of two will happen:
If you receive our explanation but still believe your bill is wrong, you must write to use within 10 days telling us that you still refuse to pay. If you do so, we cannot report you as delinquent without also reporting that you are questioning your bill. We must tell you the name of anyone to whom we reported you as delinquent, and we must let those organizations know when the matter has been settled between us.
If we do not follow all of the rules above, you do not have to pay the first $50 of the amount you question even if your bill is correct.
We figure the interest charge on your account by applying the periodic rate to the "daily balance" of your account for each day in the billing cycle. To get the "daily balance" we take the beginning balance of your account each day, add any new advances and fees, and subtract unpaid interest or other finance charges and any payments or credits. This gives us the daily balance.
