Dear ______________________:

Canada's Office of Consumer Affairs has provided a Harmonized List of Prohibited Collection Practices, revised April 25, 2003, (the "Prohibited Practices") that provides a minimum level of restrictions on collection agents and protections for Canadian consumers from collection agents. Any restrictions and protections contained in the governing law that are greater than the Prohibited Practices are also applicable to any collection activities between you and myself for the account.

Please give this very important matter the utmost attention.
