    Re: account

    It should read:

    Yesterday, I went to the bank to activate your dormant account. I tried to convince them to activate it but they refused and said they had a legal opinion on the matter from their legal department. They said they had no option but to ask Suraj to visit the bank in person.

    Re: account

    Just as a matter of writing style (there is nothing incorrect about the original), "a legal opinion ... from their legal department" seems redundant.

    "an opinion... from the legal department" would surely suggest that it was a "legal opinion."

    I think you mean 'about rexifer's version'. There are several mistakes in the original.

    Note that you are "wondering", not "woundering".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yes - sorry - I meant "rexifer's original"!
