Use this funny credit acceptance letter to notify a client that you have accepted their credit application.
Usually this would be something that they have been looking forward to, so it should be low risk in terms of offending someone (by making it humorous).
However, you should always use care when trying to use humor in business. (Some companies just think everything related to business should be serious!)
I guess you will have to decide whether or not you know the company (or person) you are sending this to and whether or not they have a sense of humor.
If they don't, be careful.
We have reviewed your application for credit and [ ]it is without doubt the biggest laugh we've had in years. [ ]we think it should be on the best seller fiction list for weeks. [ ]it is our pleasure to inform you that an account has been opened for your company. [ ]we were wondering what kind of prescription drugs you're taking? [ ]we would like to meet your ghost writer. [ ]we don't think your dog is a valid co-signer.
Please feel free to [ ]send us more stories. [ ]use your account as often as you wish. [ ]try our competition. [ ]try again after you get out of the treatment center. [ ]bring in your extensive collection of old sneaker insoles for our enjoyment. [ ]apply again after Paris Hilton clears rehab.
A ________________ is attached which outlines the terms and conditions upon which this account has been opened.
Should your credit requirements change, [ ]go to a seance [ ]find a nice cardboard box and relocate under the nearest viaduct. [ ]check all telephone booths for quarters on your way to work. [ ]don't worry, be happy [ ]contact us.
Or should you have any questions regarding your new account, [ ]call this office and ask to speak to one of our account representatives. [ ]call Dave Letterman. [ ]call 911. [ ]call E.T. [ ]call someone who cares.
When you call, please have your account number available [ ]because we'll never find it! [ ]because it's not our job to look for it. [ ]so we can immediately add on our big service fee for answering the phone. [ ]in order that we might have quick access to your file. [ ]so our account rep has to do the least amount of work possible.
