Don’t know if you have any collection problems but I started using a new approach. Here is the sample letter to collect past due invoices.
November 14, 2008
I am happy to invite you to take part in an international drive to stamp out poverty, get rid of lingering debt and help put an end to the recession.
By sending me the payment of our invoice in the amount of $694.79 you will become a partner in this international endeavor.
Considering that a dollar turns over approximately six times, your payment will be immediately dispersed all over the country by our company.
By the time each dollar has completed the turning over process, you will have helped someone pay his mortgage payment, car payment, credit card payment.
You will have helped send a kid to college who will become a productive member of society and earn millions of dollars.
Your investment will provide medical care for the aged and destitute. It will fund the generation of new construction that will get our economy rolling again and end the recession.
Do you see how important paying your invoice is? Think of all the people you will be helping. You will help stamp out poverty, restore the economy and end the recession.
Hurry Bill, we need to get this rolling, and we are ready to move your investment into circulation.
