  1. Thanks for all of your advice so far. I will keep you updated as to how this progresses.
  2. Yeah this is what I have been telling myself, it's just that as it's now such a vast amount of money I am slightly worried. There is no way I could afford to pay that even if I wanted to. With regards to the letter should I address that to the person who has been sending these letters to me? Or just to DWF as a whole?
  3. Thanks for your reply. I will try and send them a letter saying that today. Do you think that if this continues they will try and take me to court? I obviously have no intention of paying they money they now claim I owe, I just want to try and get an idea of what I will have to deal with. Thanks
  4. Just an update as to where I am with this. I have received 2 letters since Christmas, the first being a reminder that I haven't paid the £1000 and that I needed to pay within 7 days. And another letter yesterday saying that I have 7 days to pay or DWF will "consider commencing court proceedings to recover the sum outstanding" Do you think I should keep ignoring these letters or should I send them a letter denying responsibility? Thanks for your advice.
  5. I paid the £150 because I did fraudulently obtain discount from Sainsburys. I admitted that at the time and I felt that by paying I would be able to draw a line under this and move on. I had read up about DWF and Sainsburys on here before I paid but like I have said I just wanted to sort it out and put it behind me. In hindsight I would have not paid if I knew they were going to come back saying I owe them more money. It's the amount of money they are asking for that worries me. The first letter I have from them clearly refers to the incident on the day it happened and states that the value of cash stolen is £0, the most recent letter I have received refers to the same incident by date and now states that the value of goods stolen is £1000. It seems as if they have just plucked that figure from nowhere. The fact that I have the first letter saying the value of cash stolen is £0 gives me confidence but I am still unsure as to where I would stand legally if they did try to pursue me for the £1000 they now think I owe. Thanks for your help so far.
  6. The voucher was for £2.50 which I reused instead of putting it into the machine. I don't know how much I saved in total but it would be nowhere near £1000. I also find it strange that if they thought I did owe £1000 in stolen cash then why didn't then put that on the initial letter? It feel like since I have paid they are just trying to get as much as they can out of me.
  7. Hi there, I have a slightly different issue with DWF than the other posts that I have read this morning: I reused the same nectar voucher at Sainburys several times and didn't put it into the self serve pay machine. I was subsequently taken to the back of the store with staff and security and had to wait for 2 hours for the police to arrive where they let me go. I received 2 letters from DWF asking to pay £150 which I assumed was for security costs having already read these forums after the incident. Looking back to the first letter it doesn't sate what the £150 is for as the value of goods stolen, damaged etc and the security costs section on the breakdown all read £0. I just wanted to move on from this and put it behind me so I paid the £150 so that I wouldn't have to deal with these people any more. However I have since received another letter from DWF, quoting a different reference number, s aying that I owe them £1000. This £1000 is supposedly the value of cash stolen according to their letter. Obviously I cannot pay this, I only paid the £150 as I just wanted the issue to go away. I have the first letter from them with clearly states that the value of cash stolen is £0, but due to the excessive amount they are now asking for I am worried. Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
