Dear Madam or Sir!

This is a 10 (ten) days' warning about your rent arrears. Your rent is behind by two thousand pounds and it's a breach of the Residential Tenancies Act and the Tenancy Agreement between us.

We insist that you pay #2000 (two thousand pounds) within next 10 (ten) working days. We request that the outstanding balance be paid in full in the next 10 (ten) days; otherwise we will apply to the court for you to pay all the rent owed and to end your tenancy.

Now, if you have already downloaded and opened the malicious file, please do a full scan of your computer with the antivirus software installed on it.
