    Gent. sig. Milani, mi dispiace per l'inconveniente ma la prego di mettersi in contatto con TNT perchè stasera hanno comunicato che "il destinatario risulta sconosciuto all'indirizzo di spedizione", come può verificare lei stesso attraverso il codice di tracciamento. Mi auguro che si tratti di un semplice disguido e che possa risolversi tutto in breve tempo. Da parte mia le invierò via mail l'indirizzo comunicato al corriere in modo che possa verificare la correttezza dei dati inseriti. La ringrazio per la pazienza e le porgo i miei più cordiali saluti. Paride
