Verizon not returning security deposit


I'm trying to get my security deposit back (the deposit I paid when I began DSL service). I stopped my DSL service almost 6 months ago, but no refund yet. I know Verizon will not take the initiative on returning this, and I'm not going to waste my time on the phone.

I am sending a certified letter to Verizon this week, requesting my refund, plus the interest I'm entitled.  Is this what people would recommend?


Re: Verizon not returning security deposit - send letters then go to small claims?
