  1. The scan at the top shows the front of my letter. It just says to contact TfL use the email address. No postal address is on the letter.
  2. Thanks Honeybee. I'll fill out the papers to plead guilty and go to court whilst continuing to try and settle with TfL. I'm no way trying to get out of this. Just hoping I can pay my penalty and avoid a conviction. Is the above address the correct address to send this to? If it is, do you think it's worth hand delivering as I work less than 5 minutes away? Should I email them also?
  3. As I said in the first post, there are some details that are incorrect but overall yes, I used the card when I shouldn't have.
  4. So to confirm send it to: Compliance, Policing & On-Street Services 9G4 Palestra, 197 Blackfriars Road London SE1 8NJ Should I plead guilty in the meantime? I now have 7 days left to respond.
  5. Wow OK. Thanks for the feedback, was trying to be honest as possible. I've left the other version in case anyone thinks that is better. What should I do now? Send it to the email address and submit a guilty plea to turn up in court to give more time for TfL to read this? Thank you again!
  6. I've made it even shorter. I'm trying my best but not sure where the specific problems are. I would like to take this opportunity to apologise about this happening. Friends and family know me as a trustworthy and honest person and I’m deeply ashamed and upset this has happened, as is my father. At the time of this incident happened, I was going through a very difficult time. An existing kidney condition had worsened and I was experiencing high levels of anxiety that was later diagnosed and treated. A criminal conviction will leave me with a problem I can’t fix and worry this continued stress may be affecting my kidney condition. When I travel with my parents, I carry their pass on behalf of them which they find helpful in busy situations. This is what I was referring to when answering the question ‘How long have you had the pass?’ as noted in the case summary. I would never knowingly use my parent’s pass. On this occasion, I had completely forgotten to give the card back to my father. I usually carry an oyster card style wallet that contains numerous cards and was mortified I was carrying my father’s pass. I was very shaken and nervous and still feel like that today which is why I avoid using this station. I now always ensure I take my card out of wallet for peace of mind that this will never happen again. I am extremely sorry for what may appear to have been an attempt to avoid paying for my fare, but would like to stress that this was not intentional and was an honest one off mistake. I'm so sorry for my actions and the inconvenience caused to all involved. I’d be happy to have the opportunity to pay the avoided fare and any incurred costs that my actions have caused immediately as to avoid a criminal record so I can positively move forward from this incident which will be to buy my first property. I’ve never been in trouble with the law and very sorry that my mistake has led to this. Not having a permanent reminder of this will help with my anxiety knowing my parents do not see me as a convicted criminal and protect my good name. I would appreciate your consideration and sincerely hope that you can take this into account when deliberating on next steps regarding this case.
  7. I've cut it down some more. Could someone take another look please? I would like to take this opportunity to apologise about this happening. Friends and family know me as a trustworthy and honest person and I’m deeply ashamed and upset this has happened, as is my father. At the time of this incident happened, I was going through a very difficult time. An existing kidney condition had worsened and I was experiencing high levels of anxiety that was later diagnosed and treated. I’m finding it very difficult to deal with the fact I could end up with a criminal conviction and this is continuing to add stress as well as increasing my blood pressure which I worry may be affecting my kidney condition. When I travel with my parents, I carry their pass on behalf of them which they find helpful in busy situations.

I am extremely sorry for what may appear to have been an attempt to avoid paying for my fare, but would like to stress that this was not intentional and was an honest one off mistake. I wish to apologise to the member of staff concerned and to TfL. I'm so sorry for my actions and the inconvenience caused to all involved. Having previously applied for jobs within TfL, it's a company I've always wanted to be a part which makes it's even harder to come to terms with this. I’d be happy to have the opportunity to pay the avoided fare and any incurred costs that my actions have caused immediately as to avoid a criminal record so I can positively move forward from this incident.

  8. Sorry about that, it's now in PDF format. I've included all the pages that are specific to me. The other pages are the continued plea pages, statement of assets and a TfL FAQ. Again, thank you so much for helping. Letter.pdf
  9. OK, I'll re-write the letter to make it shorter. Who shall I send it to as I only have an email address? I may have missed other letters as the address is incorrect. Shall I send off the forms to plead guilty and attend court in the meantime? Thank you.
  10. Sorry if I’ve been unclear but there is no offer. I have received a Single Justice Procedure and nothing else. I now have 7 days to plead guilty or not guilty. If there was an offer to pay I would have straight away. I’d like to try and settle this without going to court and avoid a conviction.
  11. What needs cutting down in my letter and what should I do in the meantime? I want to be proactive and try my best to resolve this but not sure what to do now.
