    Hi Bosun,
    I used to have to write letters like this for a prior company I worked for.

    As you have requested, we have credited your account in the amount of...
    As you have requested, we are refunding your entire purchase price. Please find enclosed a check ...

    We would like to provide you with an upate of the actions we have taken to date to resolve the issue, and assure you that we are continuing to work toward a resultion that will be to your complete satisfaction.
