  1. Wonder if you can clear something up for me, so you say you didn't scan a packet of sushi, and by your description, I take you went through a self scan till This is my main job, in my work, and I see a lot of bagging alerts that come up, sometimes on purpose, but sometimes down to error So on your part, if going through self scans, was it intentional not to scan the sushi, now if however you had thought you had scanned the sushi, its really up to the self scan host to sort this error out, so I would call that mitigating circumstances
  2. 3 year ago, I was stopped in one of the Superdrug shops in Glasgow, security guard kept on following me round the shop, and he didn't see the bottle of Fanta twist in my back pocket As I was leaving the shop, I took the bottle of juice out of my pocket, and he noticed this, and I was ushered into the shop, and he claimed I haven't paid for the juice. Doh it wasn't bought in here, but rather my work place, don't think he expected me to reply, which I did Told him, I work in retail, and for him to stop me he has to be 100% I haven't paid for the item; so I asked him, did he see me go
  3. I just wonder if the likes of RLP are curbed in what they do, instead of threatening letters being sent, which you can just tear up, it ends up going the other way; the shops them self's now take direct action against the shoplifters So instead of gdpr protecting shoplifters, it actually works in favour of the stores which have to deal with shoplifters, but only time will tell
  4. Before applying for your Esta, it might be best to make a subject access request to see your criminal record, if they have anything on you; so if they have nothing on you, you should be ok to apply for your Esta, and it says all the hassle of being refused entry into the USA, all because of a criminal record Details here https://www.gov.uk/copy-of-police-records
  5. I assume when you started working for TKMaxx, you were given hand book, so I would suggest if given a hand book, you read through, and see what it says with regards this. My employers hand book classes, Theft or attempted theft, either from the company or its colleagues, customers, contractors or suppliers, as Gross misconduct and is a sack able offence
  6. If you no longer have a receipt, Tesco should be able to find that transaction on their system, but they will need details; like till you paid for your items, time and date, items you bought
  7. Sounds like this manager is a jobsworth, possibly showing head office, look at me, Im catching shoplifters In my store this has happened on a few occassions, and the customers have gone to the customer service desk, and explained what happened and paid for the item, now this is called good customer service My store manager knows customers will make mistakes, she also knows customers will try to leave the shop with out paying for goods; so why would someone who has intend not to pay for something come back and tell them, can I pay for this, forgot to pay for it earlier on A shopl
  8. I can give you an idea, what happens in my work place; if you have been banned from the store, security will ask you to leave, and if you decide not to leave, they will call the police, and they remove you from the store, as far as Im aware, the police dont charge anyone, but more warn them of
  9. I never knew there was a limit of how much liquids you can have in your suit case and place into the hold, so 190 possible adult passengers, each carry 5L of port, which equals 1000L, would this not be an even bigger danger
  10. As someone who works in retail, and has to deal with possible shoplifters, who go at lengths to not pay for things. Sometimes it isnt clear cut if a customer is up to no good, now I dont know what your intentions were, so lets look at what, why this off-duty employee claimed you were trying to steal. So I take it you went round the shop with either a basket or trolley. Did you place all the items into the basket or trolley Did you at anytime decide you didnt want that item, and place it someplace else in the shop, possibly high value item If you havnt done anything wron
  11. The Sainsbury you were banned from, does it have an Argos shop, like my Sainsbury So how does the ban apply when Sainsbury let out there shop floor space, especially if you were to apply for a job, and start working there very soon
  12. I can tell you what happens in my store, as far as things go, the general store manager, leaves security issues, like theft, argument to security If someone walks out with food with out paying, and has been seen by another member of staff, ie not watching them on cctv; security will check cctv, and if it is shown that the customer has not paid for the food, it will be recorded in the theft book, and cctv kept for around 6 months, no report will be sent to police, if you come into the shop, you wont be approached by any security, however if the customer was to do this a few more times,
  13. I was always told in my store, if a shoplifter is going to run, let them go, don't put your self in danger, after all we have the proof he hasn't paid for his shopping on cctv, and this them gets passed on to the police
  14. I have now gone ahead, and contacted my money advisor, with a revised offer, so hopefully the creditor will accept; one thing I have learned being on this debt program is to manage my money, and now see no need for credit cards or even bank loans, I just budget what I need and use excel to do this
  15. Looking for more of, how other person have got on, and have already looked through the web site
