You recently used a taxi and left some important documents there. Write a letter to the taxi manager and say:
– Describe what you left and where it happened.
– Why are these papers important?
– What would you like the manager to do about it?
Dear Sir / Madam,
I am writing in regards to a recent journey I made in a vehicle from your fleet on June 1st, 2018, more specifically, from London Mayfair to Piccadilly station, starting around 4 pm and finishing 30 minutes later.
Immediately after entering the taxi that afternoon I immediately started reviewing some very important documents containing confidential client data. I have strong reason to believe I left these documents in the cab upon reaching the destination.
These papers are of enormous value because of the information contained, and if they fall into the wrong hands there could be profoundly serious implications for myself, and possibly your firm too. The documents concern an extremely sensitive governmental topic regarding national security, it is therefore of paramount importance they are found and returned to me as soon as possible.
As a result of this, I need your firm to check the security camera in the cab of the aforementioned date and time, and please send a copy to this email address: [email protected]. In addition, I would be terribly grateful if you could forward the contact details of the driver as I would like to contact him before the situation spirals out of control.
Your assistance in this matter is of dire importance, furthermore, I would like to believe we can solve this between ourselves without the Police or MI5 interference.
