  1. Honeybee et al, thank you for all your advice. I sent my letter off and have had contact offering me a fine to settle the matter to the tune of £58.67. I'm very relieved and will be more careful in future.
  2. Honeybee et al- I would appreciate you advice and guidance on the below please: I am really sorry and would like to apologise for my actions regarding ‘Giving a false name and address’ and ‘entering a train for the purpose of travelling without a ticket entitling travel’. It was a genuine mistake that led me to travel on the Thameslink service without the correct ticket. As you can probably see from my travel history, I don't think I have ever travelled on that route before or used Blackfriars station. I normally travel on the tube and overground with my zone 2-5 weekly
  3. Hi Stigy, I'm sorry but I don't really understand your post. Can you please explain? I can't tell you why most people do things, it's not my field of expertise. I can only tell you why I did it and I have already done that. I was stressed, tired & under a lot of strain & when faced with somebody accusing me of something I hadn't intentionally done, I got annoyed. He didn't explain the process & I wasn't told there was a right of appeal. He started taking about prosecution & wanted my name & address details but I didn't know what for. It makes no sense either tha
  4. Hey DX, I did answer your question. I will cut & paster again here for you; I don't think I have ever travelled from Blackfriars before in my whole life. It's not a place I visit. I was coming home from there and had walked there from Waterloo. I had arrived on the tube to Waterloo and had enough top up on my oyster card on top of my zone 2-5 travel card. Until January I had a zone 1-5 as I was working in St James Park for approx 15 months but then transferred my work back to Zone 2 and started buying a zone 2-5. My card is regularly checked by officers entering the overgroun
  5. Thank you both. I don't think I have ever travelled from Blackfriars before in my whole life. It's not a place I visit. I was coming home from there and had walked there from Waterloo.

Until January I had a zone 1-5 as I was working in St James Park for approx 15 months but then transferred my work back to Zone 2 and started buying a zone 2-5. My card is regularly checked by officers entering the overground with no problem. I tend to go into Zone 1 on Fridays but n
  6. Thank you for your response albeit 'caught ' makes it sound like I was up to something. Maybe ignorance is not an acceptable defence but I had no idea that I did not have enough top up on top of my weekly travel card to travel on the train. I did tap in and the barriers let me through. I watched 'fare Dodgers' jump the barriers & run past me at King Cross. I requested the police attend because I was unhappy. Im not apologetic for any of that. I am apologetic for the situation that ensued and I am apologetic for giving false details even though I stated what I was doing
  7. Thank you for replying. The letter states I have 21 days to respond. Alleged offences are:Giving a false name and address and entering a train for the purpose of travelling without a ticket entitling travel.
  8. Hi, I hope you can provide me with some advice. I have just received an intention to prosecute letter from Govia Thameslink Railways. Offences listed are: giving a false name & address & entering a train without a ticket. They are asking for my side of the story. I feel really scared about this! I always travel with a Zone 2-5 travel card & use the tube & overground, not rail. When I come into Zone 1 on the tube I always have approx. £10 on extra just in case & if short, just keep topping up the £10 when it prompts me at the barriers
