All I expected was to be informed and you didn't do that. Very simple. There was no apology and you just defended it, instead of a simple, we apologise, that should not have happened etc. I don't remember signing an agreement for you to hold the money or any communication that made that clear. Yes, its a serious allegation but I stated facts. The bad experience continues, I posted for one reason - because you couldn't apologise and did not recognise my concern. That is arrogant and it's my ...
