  1. Honeybee, common sense should be the guide, this is what i am saying, so in this kind of situation they should look at the person, the circumstances, the railcard expired by how many days, the profession of the person (I still am a research student and show my University card to the revenue officer) I've just read a very interesting article re. this http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/article-23731140-fare-dodgers.do and I duly agree with that view... in my case I wanted to pay the full fare and I offered to do that, I apologised and explained the circumstances, whatelse they want
  2. MrGates thanks for the suggestion regarding the nonsense:|. I wouldn't write or talk in that tone to them of course...this is a forum and I think it's nice to express opinions in truly honest fashion at least here....GRRRRR....
  3. MrGates the ticket I had was the only ticket and it was a return ticket Leicester-Nottingham. I had to purchase a new ticket on my return and they didn't even allow me to pay the difference between the old ticket (discounted) and the new (so i had to pay in full for a new ticket when in fact I had purchase alrady a discounted one) , and sent it (photocopy) to them in my "letter of apologies". I have the copy of my letter of apology (which they didn't bother to reply to: is this acceptable? ) and I could post it in the thread (without my personal details of course). My argument is that they sen
  4. Thanks Old-CodJA, does it make a difference that I offered to pay the full ticket and that the railcard was expired by only 7 days and not months? probably yes:) but I may be too optimistic... the point is that if nobody challenge this nonsense ever they will always bully customers/travellers in this way. It was a human mistake and the case is ridicolous, any Court in my opinion would recognise this. Ops!... Too optimistic again?
  5. Thanks Honeybee I will try to refrain from posting private messages then:) MrGates, I understand that every case is different , but in my case i had a ticket and a rail card which was expired (by only 7 days!!). The other guy (which the case got dismissed on the day of hearing) didn't have a ticket at all. That's why I am so curious to know whether he plead not guilty. Mr gates did you mean in your last post that you deduct from Warren218 thread that he probably plead NOT guilty because the case was adjourned? thanks again
  6. and I also signed the notebook at the end. I still cannot believe this is happening:smile:!!
  7. Thanks again MrGates, I did offer to pay the full ticket and I was utterly shocked to hear that option was not accepted and I would be prosecuted When she (the ticket officer) started to write the report she asked me a few questions and then you are right she asked me exactly: "Do you have the means to pay a valid ticket?" at which I responded (in the report) "Yes, of course I have the means". Thanks again
  8. Dear Warren218, I have read your old post regarding being dismissed by the prosecutor in your case, bt it's not clear whether you plead guilty or not guilty in your case? I have too been summoned to appear at magistrate court by the EMT (train company). I was stopped by an officer in October, I had my ticket but my student card was expired by 7 days and both me and the ticket agent who issued the ticket never realised it. On that day I offered to pay for the difference or even for a full new ticket (the difference in price was £4.20, so this is the amount unpaid) but the office
  9. I do really need urgent help regarding a similar case, my new thread regarding this is : "Court summons received. What should I do?". Thank you Franki
  10. also there is a post by Warren218 (member name) in a previous thread named: "Court summons - a few questions" where he explained that he went to the hearing and the case was dismissed by the prosecutor, who offered the option to pay a £20 fine to him and the full ticket price, so they never went ahead with the hearing. It still not clear whether Warren218 did plead guilty or not. His case -he said0 was adjourned to another date, but he doesn't specify what it was his response to the summon (did he plea guilty or not guilty?). I wish I could contact the member, but i don't have yet enough
  11. i still think they should have not gone this way, it doesn't make any sense. I can dispute and not agreein with the statement of fact, right? they don't mention anywhere in their statement that I have in fact offered to pay the full ticket! if I don't agree with their statement of fact perhaps the things are debatable...
  12. thanks MrGates! what should I do then, if I plead guilty most likely I will be responsible for all the costs!! it's crazy
  13. Dear all, reading your post was very interesting but I am not sure it asnwer my doubts at this point. I have too been summoned to appear at magistrate court by the EMT (train company). I was stopped by an officer in October, I had my ticket but my student card was expired by 7 days and both me and the ticket agent who issued the ticket never realised it. On that day I offered to pay for the difference or even for a full new ticket (the difference in price was £4.20, so this is the amount unpaid) but the officer treated me like a criminal and took all my details, saying that I would
