Vital Basics - Demand Letter

Below is a sample letter you can use to demand that Vital Basics (or similar companies) stop placing unauthorized charges against your account. Be sure to send the letter via certified mail, return receipt requested. Don't email or call. It is a waste of time and does not constitute legal notification.
