  • What is the URL you are connecting to?

    As a style note, instead of hardcoding a magic number, you should use the correct value:

    ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Tls12;

  • You're not passing any headers so is this coming from the actual call or the response from the remote end? If the error is coming from the remote end then it might be that the remote end expects headers (which we would have no way of knowing) and you aren't providing them.

    Catching the actual exception and showing us the message, callstack and any underlying HTTP information would be useful. You can also use Fiddler to watch the network traffic and get the request you send and the response that was returned.

    Please, when posting code, use the Insert Code Block tool in the editor so we can see your code more easily.
