Like mentioned in title I was caught shoplifting at TK Maxx. Long story short. The police was called and I was taken to their small room for a search. TK got all their stuff back. The police gave me a warning and I had to sign the paper saying that I am willing to give my personal details to the store so they can send me the letter from RLP. Their job ended there. I was told by the store manager to wait for the letter from RLP and so it came a few days ago. They want me to pay 270 pounds. In general Im not from UK. I am an exchange student going back home by the end of jan. In the paper (notice given by tk maxx) only my current uk address has been written down. They also have my full name and date of birth. My question is : What may happen if I just ignore the letter. Can Tk max obtain more details regarding my persona from the police in order to take me to court? Is it possible this can chase me back to my country (personally I dont think they will want to)? If you need any extra info, just ask. Could really use some advice. Cheers
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 ignore the fees which they do not receive by so many of those who have not paid. Especially regarding cases where there is a true case of shoplifting, to which the police attended and the suspect admitted to the crime. To those who have had contact with the RLP and decided to ignore and not pay, have they stopped sending you letters? And how can you be sure that they won't get in contact with you a year or two down the line, making it a lot worse for you? Especially since some who have posted to this site have commented how eventually outside debt collecting companies get involved after some months of non-payment. Sorry for so many questions. I do not agree with the vast amounts of money that the demand, but I am just curious as to the success of the advice given on such sites as this. I hope you can make some things clearer for me here. Thanks very much for your time reading this. Jo.
