Subject: Request for Assistance with Unintended Charges

I hope this message finds you well. I am a student currently using Azure for educational purposes. Recently, I encountered an issue where I was unintentionally charged $291.00 for services I used while learning about the platform.

Due to my current financial constraints as a student, I am unable to pay this amount. This usage was a mistake, as I had intended to cancel the services but forgot to do so.

I am requesting your assistance in resolving this matter. Specifically, I am hoping you can help me reverse or waive these charges. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

    Please create a New Support Request in the portal and choose Issue type: Billing Problem type: Refund request, then click Next. Once it shows suggested solutions, DO NOT CLICK the Request a refund button, click Return to support request in upper left corner as shown below:
