    Ben
    It isn't correct and it is difficult to read.

    You have three verbs in that sentence, all connected with "and". At first, the third verb seems to be part of a compound verb in the second phrase, but it really is a third verb.|

    We apologize for any inconvenience. We are attempting to resolve the problem, and we hope you find our solution acceptable.
