  1. Yeah super happy and grateful for that, they easily could've prosecuted for fraud. And I sent a pleading letter when they first asked me to plead my case but no I haven't gotten in contact with them since I received the summons on Friday. I don't even know if I should try tbh, I don't think it's going to go anywhere but obviously, I do not want a criminal record in the slightest so I am going to try calling and speaking to the prosecutor on the day. In the meantime, I will attend court in person. When it comes to payment, do you have any idea of how that works dx? Do I
  2. Okay received the court summons on Friday as expected, I am attending court on the 26th of next month. I don't know if I will even bother calling TFL's offices in hopes of an OOC settlement because I really don't have mitigating circumstances. I haven't even been in trouble with my school teachers let alone the law. I naively made a very stupid mistake of following what everybody else was doing which I feel terrible about now. I am going to try to speak to the prosecutor on the day but again I don't have very high hopes with that either. I am being
  3. can take up 2 weeks for them to send you a letter, but please make sure to update us I'm in the same boat as you!
  4. lmao okay thank you, I promise to update this thread with new info as it comes!!
  5. Okay now I'm scared because I doubt they can issue imprisonment on the more common acts like byelaws or RORA but I don't know about the ones that WW was issued so i'm currently petrified lol
  6. Thanks dx, i've been doing a crazy amount of research in regards to the criminal record side of this. (yes I know I haven't recieved a court summons yet and I'm truly going to fight for an OOC settlement but I am just preparing myself for the worst) I just wanted to ask if my criminal record would be on fare evasion only? or does it differ to your situation? Like for example when wanderwall uploaded his/hers court letter I did not understand what he was being charged against? It says "Contrary to regulations 7 (b) (ii) conduct of drivers, inspectors, conductor
  7. Yeah I certainly will. Do you have any idea of the impact of the record? If it's spent after a year does that mean it will stop showing up on DBS checks after that?
  8. I very much doubt I'll be able to settle OOC in my case, I have given up all hope. The other threads I read have been refused OOC. I was caught with the 16+ on the bus by an inspector but I know people that had their oysters just randomly stop working, also have a friend who was called by TFL as they noticed an inconsistency in his applications and was told to stop using it or a summons would be sent. I don't have dodgy friends at all, but I can't stress how common these 16+ oyster cards are, a ton of people have them unfortunately.
  9. Hi, I wanted to ask if there was anyway of being dismissed by my current job due to this record? Can an employer find this out, would they be notified any way? I just work a basic sales job btw.
  10. I plan to attend court but I do have crippling anxiety already in regards to this whole situation and suffer from panic attacks. I'm worried because I am thinking that for my mental health it may be better to plead guilty by post but I do want to show the court in person how remorseful I am to lower the fine.
  11. Thank you! Do you know anything about how the fine works? is it paid in cash on the day?
  12. Thank you for your reply dx, do you know if the inspector is actually in court on the day? I researched that the inspector only shows up as a potential witness if you plead not guilty but I was just wondering if you could confirm?
  13. Hi everyone, As many others on this forum, I made the completely stupid mistake of purchasing a fake 16+ oyster card. I used it for approx a year when the ticket inspector on the bus approached me and asked for my D.O.B ect. She took down my details and I received the letter from tfl that everyone else typically receives. I responded with remorse and my genuine naivety to how serious this situation was. This happened back in mid Jan btw. I purchased the card at my old workplace, a colleagues friend was creating them and he was selling them to a few
