Dear Sir,
Last month I was on a holiday trip your beuatiful holiday resort. We had such a greet party. We were all drunk and we were under after-hang, and I was not very sure I left my watch somewhere near the bar table. The watch has blue strap and glasses are little scrateched.
My grandmother gave me that during my wedding, so it is very important for me.
So I request you to please look under the table or near the chair and if found please mail it to me. I will pay the postage charges.

Dear Sir,

I am writing to you to report an incident and request the claim of my suitcase. I have subscribed to one of the insurance schema of your company and I think my insurance covers this incident.

The item I lost was a suitcase with light blue color. It has 4 wheels and one smile sticker on the front. Inside the case, I have my clothes at the bottom. There are 2 shirts and a pair of shoes and on top of the shoes there is a black color sunglasses. Also,I put my passport in the pocket of one of the shirts. I was holding the case while I was waiting for my train. I picked up a phone call from my wife and left the case on the ground. Then the train came and I got on the train forgetting to bring my suitcase. When I noticed that, the train has already started. It was too late for me to get the suitcase.

This being the case, I would like your company to calculate my lost and start the claim process. I am available in the next few days and willing to provide whatever proof if needed.

I look forward to your reply.

My name is Max Payne and I am subscriber of your insurance with policy number MNY1322. This letter in regards to my laptop which was lost last week while I was spending holidays at Gold Coast, Sydney.

The case of the laptop is black in colour and it has a picture of skull with red background on its top. There was a party going on at the Black Rock hotel where I stayed and I left to the dance floor while they played one of my favourite songs, leaving the laptop at the lawn in front on my room. Once I returned, I found that the laptop was missing.

I would request you to send me the procedure list to follow so that I can submit a request to initiate the claim process. I look forward to your swift response.

Hi Mahaa,

The letter task is only for the general test, never for the academic test.


Hi Mathew,

I don't think it would be a problem, but you should really do what the question tells you to do.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am Sarah Michelle Gellar and I'm writing to you regarding an item I have lost last Sunday dated June 15th of this year. The item is an iPad 3rd edition, white in color, and it has a a jelly like protective case that is pink in color, it has my name on it written at the back of the iPad.

The incident happened when I was waiting for someone at the airport. I just arrived from my travel back to Melbourne. I was seating on a bench and busy talking to my friend on the phone, while talking I can remember correctly that I was carrying my iPad then I opted to put it down. For a while I felt that I needed to urinate, so I went to the bathroom leaving my iPad on the bench where I was seating. When I was about to enter the bathroom I remembered that I left my iPad on the bench, so I went back immediately but unfortunately my iPad was nowhere to be found. I directly went to the costumer service and told them about the incident.

I believe that my insurance covers this kind of unfortunate event. My travel insurance number is VT1314 and my complaint number is TV1413, you can check this at the Melbourne International Airport.

Kindly do the needful as soon as possible and looking forward for your speedy response.


Ms. Sarah

Dear Mr Tony,

I am writing to inform you that I lost my Digital camera when I moved to another city by subway yesterday.
After I arrived in Toronto, I realized that I have lost my carmera somewhere. The carmera is black and it is a little bit heavy.
I have attached a kind of name tag on the bottom of camera so that I am able to find it easier when I lost it.

I think that while I used my smart phone in subway, someone took my camera bag by mistake or I might leave it in some place before I took the subway.
Fortunately, I heard that this case is also covered by your insurance policy. As your customer, I would like to request compensation but I do not
exactly know what kind of paper I should sumbit.

I will really appreciate to you if you let me know about this as soon as possible.
I look forward to your reply.
thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Sir,
I am writing this letter in regard to insurance policy number 234A to claim my lost laptop.
Last week, I went on short vacation with my friends at Palm Beach hotel. We spend almost three days over there. However, in order to keep track of my office work, I used to carry my laptop where ever I go. Unfortunately, on our last day in the hotel apartment I lost my laptop.
I still remember we were dinning at a round table, my friend left the table to answer one phone call. In between I went to restroom, when I came back surprisingly my laptop was missing. I asked the hotel manager and surrounding people but nobody had appropriate answer. I already register complaint in the police station. I purchased this grey colour laptop about month ago from apple dealer apart from that I mark one dragon sticker on back side of the laptop.
As it covered under my insurance policy, I am entitled to claim for my lost laptop. I already forwarded the police complaint number for your reference. It is very difficult for me to handle my office work without my laptop and I cannot afford to purchase new one. So I will highly appreciate if you could make my settlement as early as you can.
I look forward to receiving your response.
Yours sincerely,
Ajay Sharma

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to file a claim on the travel insurance I have with you, as I lost an expensive item on my trip to Australia from Singapore

The lost item was a 10 inch Sony Tab I bought for 1400$ at JB Hi-Fi shop in Melbourne.

The accident happened on May 10 when I was taking the flight AU380 to Australia from Singapore. I used my tablet to play games on the flight and put it in my cabin bag before landing. Unfortunately, when I passed the immigration at the airport, I found my tablet missing. I contacted the airline company immediately but they did not find it. I assume that someone must have mistakenly taken it.

According to the insurance terms, any lost item costs more than $200 is covered by the contract. So I am entitled to request either a replacement or compensation for my tablet. Please let me know what kind of paperwork I will need to do to make an official claim.

I would like to thank you in advance for your prompt assistance regarding this matter.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to inform and claim the insurance for my lost while I took my holiday last week in Australia.

Unfortunately, I did a terrible thing that I forgot my Iphone on the train taking from Melbourne to Sydney. This Iphone was very special for me since it had been bought by my wife. It is Iphone 6 with gold colour and costs about 1000 dolars.

I think the Iphone somehow dropped out from my pocket while I was sleeping on the train or I could be accidentally left it on the table after I spoke to my friend. I also asked and reported this issue to the staff in the lost and found property at the station. However, it seems to me that has gone for ever. It maybe some one has taken it.

Therefore, I would like to ask for 1000 dolars in order to buy a new Iphone. I have also included my insurance contract before I took a trip here for your reference. It is covered all the costs of the lost.

I look forward to receiving your email and response. Thanks in advance!

Your faithfully,

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to make an insurance claim for an item which I lost on Sunday 27 July 2014 during my holidays in Lowestoft. My name is Abrar and my insurance policy number is PK8881.

Allow me to explain this item. It was a black Analog Rolex worth 500 pounds, moreover it had also sentimental value to me due to fact that it was gifted by my grandmother. I was shocked the moment I realized I lost it.

As far as I remember, I think I lost it when I was running on the beach with my friends. I had hard luck searching for it myself. As per the term and conditions of the policy all lost items are covered, therefore, I am eligible for a full compensation.

I have been a loyal customer to your company for the past two years and I hope you will settle my claim within the two weeks processing time.

If you need any more information please feel free to contact me on 777-99-939. Thank you for your time.

Yours Faithfully,

Please rate my letter , I would be very thankful. My GT test is on the 19th.

Dear Sir or Madam,

Good Day! I am writing to inform you that I have lost my business laptop during holiday.

It is Fujitsu S936 Lifebook model. I have been using it for less than a year and I must say it is quite durable, reliable and very light to carry. I left for vacation during Holiday and brought my laptop so I could still work and check my emails. When I went back to hotel to work via Virtual Private Network or VPN, I noticed my laptop is gone. I couldn’t find it elsewhere and I even asked my colleague if they have seen it, unfortunately they couldn’t find it as well.

Since I have travel insurance I hope you will cover the cost of lost laptop. Herein attached are the Hotel security and Police report for your reference.

Please let me know if you require any further information.

Yours sincerely,

Maria Gay Cruz
