A: See if you can approach them personally with a cashier's check for $3000 in hand. Tell them you will give it to them if they give you the letter.

A: Or you could pay an experienced Florida lawyer $250 and have them write a letter and pay the debt on your behalf, from their Trust Account, just to impress the apartment complex's lawyers.
