Dear [Recipients Name],

Being your broker, I strongly advise you to sell your house to Mr. Addams. Although he has made a bit lower bid on your property, you can rest assured that he will pay you for your house immediately. Your higher bidder has a bit of a shady background, and a bit of research has led me to learn about various cases of a scam in buying houses going on lately. I am only looking out for your security as a seller, and I hope you will contact me soon regarding this issue.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
