When I applied for a student visa, I had to open a locked account that only allowed me to withdraw a certain amount each month. That account has long been at 1.50 € because the bank can't close it without permission from immigration office. So I emailed the office and asked for a letter saying the account could be closed so I can have a free, online, non-student account. Here's the answer:
Sehr geehrte Frau Glauser,

die Aufhebung der Sperre für Ihr Konto habe ich verfügt.
Bitte holen Sie das Schreiben für die Bank an der AUSGABE unserer Behörde zu unseren Öffnungszeiten persönlich ab.
Die Gebühr beträgt 10,00 €.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
I have to pay 10 € to get 1.50 € and the peace of mind that comes with one less bank account. Typical.

Should I go to the trouble of picking up the letter and paying? :D
