Dear _______________,

Your account is currently in default of our payment policy. This has been a recurring problem throughout the past year. Our long-term relationship has allowed us to keep this delinquent account on our books for a while, but our credit department has recommended that your account now be referred to our attorney for legal action.

I hope that you will resolve this account quickly so that we will not need to pursue legal action. We will wait [number] days for your response to this letter before we take any further action.

Sincerely,
