Dear [Recipients Name],

I am sending this letter as confirmation of the request I made yesterday through your helpline. To reiterate, I would like for you to stop the $100 payment for check number 5632, under account number 789-0015-0206.

I would highly appreciate it if you could send me a document to confirm the completion of this request of mine. Thank you.
