Your ID card has been stolen. Write to the Local Police Station, giving details of who you are what happened ask what you should do to get a new ID card

Dear Sir or Madam, I am writing to report the robbery of my identification card. Allow me first to introduce myself. I am Loisa Manuja, and I am a newly-arrived overseas student from Egypt for the sake of pursuing my master's degree at Queen's College in Ontario, Canada.
, I am currently residing in block number 27, Casarowya District. In relation to the specifics of the incident, yesterday, on the twenty-first of May, I was on my way to university when I was stopped by a group of 3 young people who were attempting to sell me magazines. After that, I reached my destination and ordered a cup of coffee, but when I checked my back bag to pay for it, I realised that my wallet was stolen. Fortunately, my money was not stolen as well since I used to keep it in an internal zipped pocket.
, could you possibly inform me of the procedures I am entitled to take in order to issue a new identification card? As you are no doubt aware, definitely will I not be able to enter my final exams without having an identification card. Thank you in advance in anticipation of your prompt response. Faithfully yours, Luisa Manuja

The Greeting

Depending on the style and aim of the letter, you will need to adapt your greeting.

Always start an informal letter in the ways:

  • Dear + name
  • Hi / Hello + name

‘Dear...’ is more appropriate, so stick with this.

For a formal letter there are two options for the greeting:

  • Use Dear Sir or Madam if you don’t know the name of the person you are writing to.
  • Use Dear + surname if you do know their name, e.g. Dear Mr Smith or Dear Mrs Jones.
