Dear Benefit Service Policy,

Looking at the spreadsheet you sent to my personal e-mail address, I can't see any accounts made since February. To say the least, this doesn't seem likely for Birmingham! I suspect this information is very out of date - is it possible to get a more recent version of the data?

Yours sincerely,
