Dear [Recipients Name],

I apologize for not having sent you the payment for the previous month. I noticed an irregularity in the accounts statement, and I wanted to make things sure before I take any action.

Since, yesterday, the bank acknowledged the error, so now I am processing your funds transfer. Not only this, the bank has assured me that such things shall not be repeated in the future. I appreciate your patronage and look for the same in the coming future.
