Dear Fiona 


I am writing about my fees for the last three months. 

The total amount owing is now $4,000.This amount relates to website maintenance and IT support services I provided by agreement with you for 20 hours each month in the months of May, June and July 20xx. I refer to my invoice dated 10 August 20xx that was due for payment by 10 September 20xx. 

I ask that Fantastic Florists pay me the amount of $4,000 by 29 October 20xx. If I don't get paid this amount, I may start legal action against Fantastic Florists to recover the debt without further notice. Legal costs and interest may be added to the debt. 

Yours sincerely,

M. Vishwana
