To : USAA Federal Savings Bank XXXX XXXX CEO Respondent RE : CONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE FOR VALUE FOR PROOF OF CLAIM UPON CORPORATIONS CONTRACT, FOR DETERMINATION OF MEETING OF THE MINDS, FRAUD ON THE CONTRACT, AND/OR AN UNCONSCIONABLE CONTRACT AND/OR AGREEMENT FOR COMMERCIAL DISCHARGE Dear Mr. XXXX XXXX, I have tendered Payment to you by Promissory Notes. You have accepted my payment and have not yet have discharged the debt. I have sent you numerous letters and notice of default/dishonor on your part. I have submitted Complaints to The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. To include XXXX, XXXX, XXXX. You have refused to answer my questions and provide information on my Original Wet Ink Promissory Mortgage note. As the creator of the negotiable instrument which you sold and did not offset the account. I have provided you several tenders of payment and all the laws that provide me the remedy to discharge the debt. You have not provided the contract with your signature or a bank officer ‘s signature. A contract must have value and consideration to be a valid contract. You have not shown me that you loan me anything. Answer the these questions and provide a affidavit of truth with your bond ( legal full name signature ) that you or USAA FEDERAL SAVINGS BANK loan me something of value.
I am in receipt of the presentment sent by USAA FEDERAL SAVINGS BANK and I conditionally accept for value ( honor ) your statement for XXXX, dated XX/XX/XXXX.
It has come to my attention that, as applied to the above matter, there may not have been a true, qualified meeting of the minds- that there may be fraud or misrepresentation on the contract, and/or the contract itself may be an unconscionable contract, or other controversies may exist within this contract/transaction.
As I want to resolve this matter as soon as possible, I am initiating this private, administrative remedy to determine such matters, and I agree to continue making payments predicated upon your proof of claim.

Here, XXXX spoke to XXXX several times after receipt of the sight draft and never requested payment in legal tender. Payment to extend the lease was due by XX/XX/XXXX, and the rejection of the sight draft did not occur until XX/XX/XXXX. XXXX rejection was, thus, untimely and tender of sight draft was sufficient to extend the lease.
23. PROOF OF CLAIM that the undersigned, as the authorized representative of the Debtor, does not have the standing or capacity to accept for value the offer/contract/presentment and discharge the same via Bill of Exchange or other appropriate commercial paper for discharge via the remedy provided by Congress, XXXX XXXX of XX/XX/XXXX and Public Law 73-10.
General acquiescence or non-response by Respondent to provide the above Proofs of Claim will constitute agreement and formal acceptance.

You admit to your non-response to bring forth Proof of Claim in support of a clean hands doctrine, full disclosure, good faith dealing pursuant to the FAIR DEBT COLLECTIONS PRACTICES ACT as it may apply to your presentment in regards to this alleged transaction/contract as referenced above.
Therein, presumption will be taken in regards to your refusal, failure, default, and dishonor, admission, and confession of injury and damage and failure to state a claim by you, Respondent. This Conditional Acceptance becomes the security agreement under commercial law, or in the alternative, you agree and stipulate that the undersigned can only discharge the demand payment letter/Bill/presentment/etc. with a Bill of Exchange or other commercial paper and that Respondent will accept said instrument as tendered to discharge the debt under necessity.
Or if the previous instrument ( Bill of Exchange ) was tendered and not accepted, you agree that the matter/account/debt is discharged as an operation of law in tender of payment and/or bankruptcy.
Due to the time-sensitive nature of this private matter, under necessity, you are to respond with Proof of Claim within ten ( 10 ) days, plus three ( 3 ) days grace granted by return service by certified priority return mail to the undersigneds address and to the Third Partys address below.
Should you fail or refuse by non-response to provide Proof of Claim within the time frame specified in this private matter, general acquiescence and acceptance will be taken on your part as formally exercised ( performed ) pursuant to your silence.
