    Remember to end your sentences with periods.

    I hope that the name and account number are not the real ones. If they are, I would edit them.

    I have deleted them.

    Also, I would say need to make rather than am in need of making.

    Re: Legal sentence .....

    Is "A/C" a common abbreviation for you?

    It means Air Conditioning for me. Not "Account."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    A/C is commonly used in the UK as an abbreviation of 'account'.
