Dear [Recipients Name],

I want to cancel my credit account with you because my daughter ran up quite a bill with it last month unbeknownst to her mother or I. Due to this fact; we've decided to teach her how not to buy on credit. And, it will be a hard but valuable lesson to our entire family.

Thank you and have a wonderful day.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
