    • read it proprly.. it doesn't say WILL anything and original creditors don't do court as they don't want the judge delving into their business model nor the bad publicity.   as for the FOS you just have to let it run. yours is a very short time since yo put it into them typically it always takes 6-9mts normally before they move on anything though they usually send you an ACK they have the complaint.        
    • Since the last post on this thread I have sent a complaint to the FOS but have not heard anything from them as yet either, I'm guessing they're rather snowed under and on reduced staff so no real surprise.   Still had nothing approaching help from lending stream but today they emailed me default notices for the loans, again demanding I phone them and pay up in full or they will begin court proceedings.   Any advice as to how I should proceed please?
    • Hi,   I received two PCNs in October 2019 from Havering Council. All the below applies to both PCNs, as the correspondences were at the same time:   Fast forward to February 2020, I file witness statements on grounds that I made representations within 28 days but did not receive a rejection notice.   The TEC cancelled charges.   Havering write to me asking for supporting evidence of representations that I made.   I email them screenshots with timestamps of the representations.   In early March Havering reply to me by email 'confirming receipt of email and both cases are now on hold pending an investigation. Please allow time for a full response to be sent.'   Fast forward to 18th June Havering write to me the attached:  Havering Charge Certificate.pdf   Now, it seems as though the sender of this letter is not up to date with both cases and is unaware of the TEC's decisions, as well as the email correspondence.   My questions are, 1) What should I do next? and 2) Is there a way to use their misstep to avoid paying for the PCN entirely?   Thank you.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi all - I need some advise!

My stupid girlfriend swapped a price label in Tkmaxx and after paying for the goods (including other non swapped items) she was asked by two Tkmaxx employees (not security guards) to go to the store office where she was told that she was suspected of changing the price tags and she would be prosecuted. She was requested to produce an ID and give her personal details - name, address and date of birth, otherwise the police would be called. She only had her work ID on her and a credit card, these were taken from her into a different room - for her identity to be confirmed and checked over phone with their ID confirmation service. Once her identity and her address were established she was told that she was banned from all Tkmaxx stores for life and she had to sign this banning notice. She was also given a leaflet from RLP that informed her that she was to receive a notice of intended civil recovery. All the goods were then confiscated and she was given a refund for all she paid for. The whole thing was apparently over in about 10 minutes!

I don’t know what got into her, she has never done anything like this before, I’m angry and she is very embarrassed and upset about the whole incident! She should really know better at her age, she knows that she has to pay for her mistake, but I worry, after reading other similar post here, that RLP will try to charge her an extremely high amount for goods that cost around £20! I just wondered if anyone actually managed to negotiate with RLP to lower the cost of the fine and was successful in doing so.

Also she has just applied for a new job and is worried that RLP will share her personal data (that is what the notice says) with other commercial organizations and potential employers.

Thanks for any comments!

Ignore anything from RIP, they were not even involved! Doubt whether they will proceed to court TK or RLP, but you will probably get a few threatening letters. They have suffered no loss and time was minimal anyway.

Thanks, will fax tomorrow. No probs to post the document - there were no personal details on it, she was only given the leaflet but didn't have to sign it and it was not addressed to her - it looks like it is for a general info.

Just out of interest, which Tk maxx store was it?

Also why on earth wouldn't you pay? That store will have signs up clearly stating that rlp is in operation. What your girlfriend did was commit a serious criminal act, namely fraud by false representation. Your girlfriend was very lucky not to have been arrested by the police, something that the retailer is still well within it's rights to report. Regardless of the legality of it, rlp does operate a vetting service for potential employers, if it was me and I did the crime, I'd pay the fine and thank my lucky stars I didn't have a criminal record to show for it.

Hi Lpi004

 

I looked at your reply, can these companies actually fine someone, if so its worrying don't you agree?

lpi004, yes it was a serious act, this however as it did not involve the police then this person has not been convicted

 

if retail loss is passing these details onto third parties (credit agencies, empolyers etc) as the person having commited fraud then this is incorrect and therefore an offence itself under the data protection act.

 

the other problem with retail loss is that they have been taking the details of many people who either made an honest mistake (which i know you wont beleave but i have seen it done by people), they have also been chasing people who have been cleared by police due to having genuine medical reasons for forgetfulness

 

until recently rlp have refused to accept that there is any medical case that causes people to be forgetful, infact it is only after alot of chasing by people on this site that they have updated the faq to reflect that this happens

Actually I am inclined to believe that there are people who are victims of circumstace. It's mainly for that reason that I risk posting on these forums at all. I just don't like it when people who are guilty (often by admission) of causing loss moan when they are expected to pay for it. As I've stated before, just because no police were involved at the time, doesn't mean they can't be later on. Assuming they had been involved and assuming your girlfrind had been lucky enough to be arrested for theft (of the difference in values) then you'd be paying the goverment £80 for what could be as little as 10 mind work for the officer.

The store incurred loss through your girlfriends actions and you should pay for it.

There is dubious at best legal basis for these private 'fines'. The presentation of the documents as official-looking may amount to fraud. Two wrongs don't make a right. Also, what you are implying about still involving the police if it isn't paid is close to blackmail.


Post by me are intended as a discussion of the issues involved, as these are of general interest to me and others on the forum. Although it is hoped such discussion will be of use to readers, before exposing yourself to risk of loss you should not rely on any principles discussed without confirming the situation with a qualified person.

Just and update on this - we have received a letter from RLP requesting to pay £130. My girlfriend decided not to pay (probably much to your disagreement Lpi004) , however she wrote back to RLP requesting to provide a detailed breakdown and evidence of the costs and evidence of her wrong doings! This was nearly 2 months ago and we have not yet received a reply from them.

This is not a private fine. It is a victim...the store, sueing a criminal for their losses. OK, i agree the store did have all the goods back, however, the suit is to cover losses of time for personnel or security staff to process this wrong doing.

 

The criminal, and let us be in no doubt, a crime was commited, was lucky that the police were not involved and should pay the costs as requested. Should this matter be taken to court, the amount ordered by a judge, could very easily be more than this particular settlement.

 

Don't be thinking that a company such as RLP are doing this for a laugh, I have seen them take some people to court and force them to sell their home to settle an outstanding bill from a crime. I would settle for a measily £150 against a day in court and appearing in the local rag.

So we can all swap labels and plead ignorance??

 

How can something that is legal, i.e. the law of tort, be a [problem]. Some of you guys really need to get real.
