I made a very stupid and quick idea to take a few things from Tk Maxx with my friend last saturday,
walking out a security guard and he walked us back in and told us to follow his collegue.
We were then told because we were 16 and 17 that the police wouldn't be called but we would get a 'fine'.
Our details were taken for this and we signed a banning letter, and were told to expect a letter for the fine. The letter has come through today and I know it's utter karma and I won't do it again,
I've seen other threads saying to ignore it and not pay,
but retail loss prevention is written on the envelope,
and my parents will be bound to see it at one point which I'm dying at the thought of.
Does anyone know what happens if I ignore the letters, such as going to court or police or ANYONE visiting my house?
How long do the letters take to go and what can i expect
