Dear {member_friendly_name},

According to our records, we have not received full payment for 
your yearly or monthly membership dues. 

(If you have paid within the last 2 weeks, then please disregard 
this notice.)

It is very expensive to keep our servers and operations running.  
Late payment of membership dues strains our collective resources.

First/People Link dues

made an error please contact us directly at 718-303-3204 or
