Hello Sherlock,

When you’re reading this I will be long gone. Your childish attempts at capturing me were to no avail and I have made out with all of the bank’s money. I leave you only with the honour of being mentioned in my memoirs, as the detective who tried – for I must confess that I am impressed with your abilities. Finding this note is but step one in apprehending me, as you do not even yet know my name.

Yours sincerely,
Vincent…
If you are reading this, send me an electronic letter. If you are the first to do so, you shall be rewarded with an entry in the next crime I commit.

The sign of V.
