Thanks for writing into us. Unfortunately, we cannot release any

If you would like us to look into this issue, please have your son
contact us directly from his login email address and include a brief
description of the problem. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Aside from improper use of the preposition in the first sentence, this
answer is wrong on many levels. First, he is not an account holder

So I'll have Elijah write to them and I'll let you know what happens.
Be thankful ~
ps. I am having serious font-size issues this morning. I think it's
because I pasted the reply from an e-mail to this post, and somehow the
blogger-font-gods are not in favor of that. Sorry.
