Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir or Madam,

My name is Ketan Kumar, and I live on Black Street, Sydney. I am writing this letter to file a complaint about my stolen wallet, which had some cash and my university’s Identification card.

I have been studying Finance at Princeton University, Sydney, for two years. I have my semester examination next Monday, and I will not be allowed to appear for it if I do not carry my ID card. Let me explain how I lost it. I was traveling back by bus to my accommodation after attending the lectures. I was in a hurry since I was getting late. I had to receive my parcel, and a courier man was waiting at my doorstep. When my stop came, I forgot to check my pockets to confirm the presence of the wallet. I think one of the two passengers who were sitting next to me must have stolen it. Since he was trying to communicate with me, he was asking me questions about my personal life. However, I tried to ignore him throughout the journey.

Kindly help me in finding my ID card as soon as possible. Let me know what documents I need to submit to file the case.

I hope you understand my situation. I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

Ketan Kumar
