25 November 2020

Dear Sir/Madam

Account No:

Further to my recent , I enclose a copy of my budget sheet which gives details of my present financial circumstances.

As you can see, my outgoings are more than my income and I am experiencing extreme financial hardship.

I would be very grateful if you would consider writing off the outstanding debt owing. I have always taken my financial responsibilities very seriously but unfortunately, my circumstances are so bad that I cannot realistically maintain payments of any kind. Please take the following special information into account when making your decision.

As you can see my situation is very unlikely to improve in the future and my continued high debt level may have a serious effect on my physical and mental wellbeing.

I would be grateful if you would seriously consider my request for the debt to be written off.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully
