  1. Hiya, I tried to take about £30 of shopping from Waitrose today. I know I'm an idiot (hence the username) I'm not doing it again, I've been scared about it and want to just move on. I'm worried about the civil recovery thing. I admitted to having taken something before on one occasion from Waitrose and so they gave me a lifelong ban. They didn't contact the police but they scanned my ID and took a photo of my face. I got given a letter from RPL. What legal advice do I need to get? They told me I will get a fine 'probably around £100'. When will I get this
  2. Hi everyone My daughter who is 18 had a moment of stupidity in January and decided it would be ok to shoplift a mascara from Boots. She was accosted by the security guy on leaving the store, taken back inside, her details were taken was given the option of them either calling the police or agreeing to be contacted by RLP - she was terrified out of her wits as she suffers from acute anxiety problems, and agreed to the RLP route. The guard copied her student ID details and took her phone number and our address. They asked her to empty her bag which she
  3. Hi All. I also am in a similar situation where TK Maxx have accused me of ticket-switching on 3 occasions in order to profit. The police were called and I was arrested and charged with obtaining goods by deception but after being interviewed at the station no further action was taken. There was no theft however and the security staff said that all items involved were from TK Maxx. it was a genuine mistake after wearing items at home I then returned them - all their tags are very non-specific so its hard to tell which tags are for which garments. I now have RLP chasing me.
  4. My Daughter was convicted of theft whilst working for WH Smith. She pleaded guilty and was ordered to pay them £1650. 6 months on she has recieved a letter from a company called Boyes Turner demanding a further £720.81 for the costs of investugating the matter. They has said the money is to be paid in 7 days or they will issue proceedings against her. Is this legal ? The court has already awarded them the money for the losses. I think the sum requested is wholly unreasonable. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi there. I have become interested in the debate surrounding the RLP company since seeing an item on it on the BBC a few weeks back. Since then I have read a lot on this forum and others, as well as the CAB advice on uncivil recovery. My main question is, I see in many of the threads on this site that those who have been contacted by the RLP are advised to not pay and simply ignore the letters and I just wonder how sound this advice is? Surely such a large company wouldn't just give up on a case and just forget about the money owed? I can not see how a company can just cut its losses and
  6. Hi - would very much appreciate some advice. I was doing my normal weekly shop in my local supermarket this morning and as per usual visited the magazine aisle were I picked up 3 magazines that I commonly buy. The magazines not covered in plastic I stuck under my handbag at the front of the trolley (as I do every week) as experience has shown that these can easily get torn at the bottom of the trolley. I did the rest of my shopping, paid for the goods and on leaving the store was apprehended by a junior manager in the store saying that she had reason to believe that I was leaving the store
  7. Good day, I'm hoping for some advice or a point in the right direction. My younger brother has received a call from MIL civil recovery demanding payment for a water bill he knows nothing about. My brother has just finished university and while there he shared a flat with two others. The water bill was not in his name but in one of his flat mates whom he paid monthly. The water contract started his flat mate’s name and “plus others". No other names were on the contract. The demand is only for GBP36 but it is the manner in which MIL are demanding the money that is concerning me. MIL o
