hi

i was shopping in boots and stupidly noticed a tiny earring on a set that cost £7 and took it (not excusing the mistake but my grandad died the night before and my head was a mess)

 

I was made to enter the store room by the security guard while going through the procedures and he has now banned for for life from Boots and issued an rlp order against me

 

What I'd like to know if possible is

 

1. How long will the RLP letter take to arrive?

2. How much do you reckon it will cost??

3. What happens if i do pay? (will any further action occur)

4. If i dont pay.. ive read through the forum and think I'm aware of the answer

 

Any help would be gratefully gratefully helped :)

 

thank you

Letters can take anything from 2 or 3 weeks to a month to arrive,usually offering a discount if settled.

 

We have seen in a vast majority of cases a figure of £137.50 being demanded.

 

We dont have much specific examples of those people who have paid.

 

If you dont pay,then they will send you further letters.

 

All these questions ARE answered within the many threads here.

Read the info from the stickies.

My experience has shown me that when signing things, we are pressurised into signing, otherwise the police will be involved. As with RLP letters, I got mine a week after the incident. If you do not pay, they regularly send out letters after the set deadlines about two to three days later.

 

I continued to ignore the letters and since September through to now, I haven't received a single letter since.

 

I hope things go well for you, like it did for me. :)

Whether you're guilty of a crime or not, the bigger picture is, Retail Loss Prevention (RLP) commits the larger unjustifiable crime.

Have you received any further letter from RLP since your last post here in Oct?

I haven't received any letters as of since I last posted here in October. However, I am always slightly going to expect that something may turn up in the future, if that day comes…

 

I hope things are going well for you. :)

carlosc256, I thank you for your comment. :)

 

As for your question, I think it's been just over two months since the letters stopped.

Sorry, I didnt realise I missed that out.

 

They were asking me for the famous but odd £137.50.

Hi Guys,

 

So Unfortunately i happen to be under the scrutiny of RLP also. I was stupid enough to steal from a dept store, and was quite rightly arrested, taken to the station, questioned and i admitted the incident. Further to this i was given an £85 fine and told that this was the end of the matter.

 

So to my surprise a week later i recieved a leter from the RLP stating a civil claim has been made against me to recover costs totalling £194.50. The first letter was sent in June 2010, and subsequent to this i have chosen to ignore their requests. i wrote to them originally stating i would not be able to pay as i was not in a finacial postion to do so, and sent proof of this. They rejected this claim and told e i still owed them money.

 

I kept in contact as i felt this was a serious civil case and did not want to face any more scrutiny. Then i no longer heard anything from August 2010 until now, when i have recieved a letter stating that this a final demand and that failure to pay will mean my details of offence etc will be passed on to prospective employers (basically threatening) if i do not pay. I am now worrying about this, and i am wondering whether or not to just pay or ignore the requests? They have given me "14days, until it is passed on and court proceeding will be brought against me"

 

Any Advice?
