A sample letter seeking the collection of debt on a delinquent account. Be sure to write formal business letters in the proper business letter format.
We are writing to collect a debt. Your account with [Insert name] has been delinquent for [Number of Days] days. We have tried to communicate with you many times via phone, mail, and email to work out repayment for this debt. However, repayment and communication have not occurred.
We do not want to go to court to collect this debt. Thus, to avoid such a situation, we must have a check for [Amount Due] on or before [Date]. It is important we receive payment as soon as possible or we will have to take legal action. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
