Dear Sir or Madam, 

Model Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am Sherin Emma, a second-year student at the University of Liverpool and my major is Economics. I am writing to report a lost identification card that I was provided by my university.

I respectfully state that on 21st December, I went to the local stadium to enjoy a music concert and had been there from 4.00 pm to 7:00 pm. After I returned to my room, at around 7:44 in the evening, I could not find my University ID. I am positive that I had it with me when I entered the stadium. I must have missed it during the concert.

I immediately notified the occurrence to the university dean and he suggested me to report it to the police station and have a copy of the report to apply for a new ID card. I waited two days hoping that someone might find it and return it to the university but unfortunately it did not happen. Now I would like you to officially record the incidence of my lost ID card so that I can collect a copy and apply for a new one. The ID has my name - Sherin Emma and number LUA-45874E, inscribed on it and is valid until 30th November 2020.

I would be much obliged if you kindly register my lost ID case and provide me with a copy of that to help me get a new one.

Yours faithfully,

Sherin Emma

Dear Sir, My name is Lucas Varghese Thomas. I am a student at St. Petersburg University doing my 2nd Year in MBA. I had lost my University ID yesterday in the evening while I left in my room. I couldn't find my ID the following morning even after a thorough search. I had reported this issue to the hostel warden and he instructed me to file a complaint to the nearest police station and that is why I am writing to you.My ID number is 06MBA17 and that was issues from the university during my admission around 2 years ago. I have requested my management to help me as I need it for appearing for my curriculum. I would like to register my details so that it can aid you in this investigation so that in the meantime I can apply for a new ID.Kindly do me the needful.Thanks and Regards,Lucas Varghese Thomas.
