Here is my responses to their email:

You have a limited Billing System?? Microsoft made 60 billion dollars last year and you’re telling me they own a ‘limited Billing System’?  Forgive me, but what a CROCK! Do you also operate out of basement?? Sorry, I don’t mean to be rude but you’d figure that a Customer Service Department can easily update/correct a member’s billing information!
