Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Hello, I'm calling you today because I just checked my bank statement and I noticed a weird transaction on a website that I have never visited. - Did you ask the rest of your household if they knew about this purchase? - Yes, and trust me, no one in my household would ever buy this! - Very well, I've cancelled this transaction and I've also blocked your card to avoid other suspicious activities. You should receive your new card by post [US: snail mail], within three working days. - Thank you very much!
