Message Body:

Buonasera gentile Cliente,
ho appena passato la fattura BB874007 del 04-11-2015 in oggetto alla nostra amministrazione per il pagamento come da contratto.
Sempre come da contratto, i reclami in garanzia devono essere inviati periodicamente, questo per permetterci di tenere monitorato in tempo reale tutti gli interventi in garanzia.
Vi allego un modulo reclami in formato Word, qualora fosse piu comoda la compilazione ed il successivo invio via e-mail per accettazione.
Potete continuare ad utilizzare il vostro modulo senza problemi, ma deve essere inviato periodicamente in modo da permetterci di registrare le garanzie in tempo reale.
Rimango a vostra disposizione per qualsiasi chiarimento.
Cordiali Saluti
