We are terribly sorry for this having happened. On the Pricing Plans on our website, under the Compassion Plan, it has always stated "Discounted Annual Fee to Update Letter." Furthermore, at the end of the questionnaire that you completed, it also states that with the Compassion Plan, there is an annual discounted rate. Again we are sorry that you missed that. Please send us an email directly. We would like to do whatever we can to make this better. There's a reason why you came back to us to update your ESA letter, because we are the best! However, a 1 star, does not show that or prove that. Please contact us directly.
