38. Get it in writing
It's a bureaucratic issue, and in bureaucracies if it isn't on paper it doesn't exist. They can send a letter making the same claim that they made to you on the phone, but if they don't have a resignation letter or your signature on something that says the same thing, then their claim won't hold up.

do it all in writing. If they tell you to call or whatever you just write back that you prefer to maintain written records. I adopted that policy when I was having trouble dealing with my bank a few years back and it made things a lot easier.
