Dear Client!
For the third time we are reminding you about your unpaid debt.

the receipt issued to you was recognized in our database
with No. 28181. But it has never been paid off.
We enclose the detailed bill for your recollection
and sincerely hope that you will act nobly and responsibly.
Otherwise we will have to start a legal action against you.
