WRITING TASK 1 – Model Answer

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to report the loss of a valuable personal item on one of your trains.

The item is a small black leather wallet with the brand name ‘Urban Limit’ embossed on the front. Inside was a library card, a credit card, a swipe card for the gym, a student I.D. card and my driver’s licence – all in my name. There was also a little cash: about $25 in all.

I must have lost the wallet between 4.15 pm and 4.30 pm while travelling southbound on the Wyndham Line on Friday afternoon (15th May). If I recall correctly, I was in the second carriage sitting near the front.

Could you please let me know if a wallet of this description has been found. My phone number is 099 304 2442. If you have it, please keep it in a safe place and I will make arrangements to collect it at your earliest convenience.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Joe Black
