Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing to claim the loss of my
camera
. I lost a Cannon D95 digital
camera
, model 2015, which valued 1000 dollars, along with a Cannon 90mm enhanced lens, which valued 500 dollars. Here is how it happened.
Last
weekend, my family and I went to the beach for vacation. It went on well that day, until we took several drinks at a bar on the way home at Lincoln Street. When we were leaving, I forgot the
camera
. It was until the
next
morning, I realized the
camera
was still at the bar, and I went back immediately.
However
, the
camera
had already gone. Nobody at the bar was aware of
this
. It was confirmed lost. I wonder how the claim process would be like. I have the vouchers for the
camera
and lens, would it be sufficient? What form do I need to fill in? Could you send me the necessary documents at your earliest convenience? Thank you in advance. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Yours faithfully, John Smith
