@Orchidgirl80:  I think it’s good. I probably wouldn’t say thank you for your services, because they didn’t actually provide services. Maybe say thank you for your time?

I would cut out a lot of the detail.

Dear Company:

Due to the fact that there has been a mix-up which has caused you to no longer have a copy of my contract nor any of my requirements, I would like to request that my copy of the contract be nullified, and that my deposit be returned.  I am attaching a copy of the cancelled check showing the payment of the deposit; please refund by postal mail to 123 Whatever Street, Blah, Blah, 01234.  Please confirm by email and include the expected time to deliver the deposit refund.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter!




If you go into too much unrelated detail then you give the vendor the opening to debate you, and you don’t need that. Just a simple “the gig is off, give me my refund” should be fine.

@Orchidgirl80:  I think your wording is better. It gives valid reason to ask for your money back.

@Horseradish:  +1. OP, this is a much more contract-oriented response. I’m not a lawyer, but I worked in contracts for a few years. If they don’t have a copy and are asking that you start over with a new contract, try to ask them to void it in that light. Does it say anything in your copy about termination of the contract?
