    Re: complaint letter

    Not bad, but note:
    1- we don't add "the" to company names,
    2- "salesperson" is one word,
    3- It's not wrong to use "Inc", but it's not necessary, especially when you're talking about a famous company like Apple.

    Post the amended version below, and we'll help you further.

    I wrote a complaint letter to Apple about the salesperson's bad attitude.

    Is it natural now?

    Very good.

    Note that if this is the first mention of "salesperson", then consider:

    I wrote a complaint letter to Apple about the bad attitude of one of their salespeople.
