Dear Sir/Madam

Account No:

Thank you for your recent about the above account.

We are sorry that you feel unable to accept the offer which we have made. Most of our other creditors have accepted the offers made to them and we have begun making payments. We cannot offer you more because we can only afford £ each month between all our creditors, and it would be wrong to stop or reduce payments to our other creditors in favour of your company. We have worked out our offer to you on a pro-rata basis. This is the same method that the County Court uses to work out repayments.

As our other creditors have agreed to our repayment offers, please reconsider our offer. As a gesture of goodwill, we will be making the payments that we have offered to your company from now on.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully
