yesterday out of stupidity and mostly boredom if i'm completely honest
I attempted to shoplift a pair of £15 headphones from Tkmaxx,
this is my first time ever shoplifting.
Once being caught I was asked to come back into the store halfway down the street,
upon entering some little room in side the shop I was searched and my bag and proof of my age,
i showed him my provisional , being a bit nervous and realized how silly it was of me to do this
I said to the man sorry etc and for wasting his time.
Until he goes on to tell me i'm going to be getting a fine from the so called "RLP" and would have to pay 'debt' for losses , administrative costs ,investigation costs and time wasting which I believe is an absolute joke, especially after doing a bit of research these fines can be up to £190!
The headphones were returned to the shop in pristine condition,
i'm not bothered if they get the police involved all they will do is give me a caution for such a petty mistake.
Does the RLP have any sort of legal right,
or are they just preying on the vulnerable to make a profit,
as I am certainly not going to pay that fine,
is there any way I can get around it or send them a letter back to end this.
Although this happened just yesterday I will keep everyone updated when I get the letter from the RLP
Thanks for reading
