Try this funny Found Payment email if your company has somehow missed crediting a payment from one of your clients. You've messed up but maybe a little humor will help smooth over the mistake.
Remember though that these business email templates are humorous to most people but you have to be careful in business when you correspond with others. Anything written down can (and may) be used against you in a court of law. Email is no different.
Therefore, people tend not to send funny email from their company.
I think however, that sometimes a bit of humor in a serious situation produces better results than threats and innuendos. In this case, where your company has made a mistake, it might take the edge off of a "not so funny" situation.
Use at your own risk however. It's your job on the line.
I've done it (but it was my own company!)
