Since our PM announced on the Service Tax of credit card in the Budget 2010. I believe most of us starts to cut on the number of their credit cards. Most of the bank requires you to write in an official letter in order to cancel your credit card. Calling the bank alone wont be enough. So I browse through the internet to look for some sample on the cancellationletter. Below are 2 samples I found on the internet.
Sample 1 (More Formal Approach)

Dear Sir or Madam:
Please allow this letter to serve as my request to immediately cancel my account with your company. I have included my check No. 1234 in the amount of $10.00 as full and final payment due on My Account. As a result, all of my obligations related to My Account have been satisfied and I expect that no future charges will be authorized on My Account. Immediately upon your receipt of this letter, please confirm the foregoing. Please be advised that in the event I do not hear from your company to the contrary within ten (10) days from your receipt of this letter, I will assume that the facts set forth in this letter are correct and will close my file accordingly.
