Dear Sir/Madam

Account No:

I am writing to you about the above account, which owed.

passed away on . I enclose a copy of their death certificate. They didn’t leave behind any assets and there is no money to pay what they owe.



Please consider writing off this debt because there is no prospect of you ever recovering any money towards it. Please write back to me to confirm your decision.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully
