Hi All,

 

of my friend went to Boots today, she had purchased perfumes of aroung 40 £.

 

She paid for 40£,

 

she got a Boots bag but she felt she missed something so went to perfume location again

and took two more perfumes which were costing around 60£ and was to pay for it,

but issue was she kept the perfume in the Boots bag,

She was in some other thoughts and went near the doors.

 

As she went near the doors she was asked by security officials to stop

and was escorted to the Cabin where she found two ladies and 2 security gaurds.

As she is new to UK she was not aware what was happening and got afraid.

 

She was questioned on perfume bottles and charged against her that she tried stealing it.

and they said it was recorded in CCTV.

She informed them that she was not aware of it and apologized for the same.

 

But they did not listen and threatened her to sign a paper

and if not signed then she will face consequences

and gave her RLP contact details on a paper and said she would get letter for RLP in a week.

 

she was asked for her address and her debit card details and banned her coming to Boots back.

 

Not sure if they had called police as she was not able to understand what were they talking.

 

We both are roommates and we both havent slept for second day now thinking what would happen next..

 

I saw the blogs. wanted to confirm what should we do

 

Should she pay to RLP

 

If she pays would they not send the letter again

and what proof she gets of payment made.

 

we are due to go to apply for Shengen visa ,

would this affect the visa application.

 

Will she have any Police record against her because of this.

 

We are leaving UK in next 6 months.

will it affect her work and will she be asked to leave from work.

 

Will boots take action against her and police will get hold of her.

 

Will RLP keep her record and will it affect my coming to UK again on work permit affect.

 

I am going to call RLP and check what they do if money not paid.

please give me answer as I and my freind are very afraid as we are new in this country.

Hi merimadat

 

They will keep on sending letters as they haven't got anything better to do, I wouldn't worry about the landlord seeing them. You'll just have to tell the landlord an incident happened but got lost in translation, you tried to explain, but they wouldn't listen.

 

Thanks for your reply Dx. so what rely do you want us to send to RLP if they send me mail. I dont want them to keep sending notices and my landlord viewing it.

Hi

Any letters that arrive will not have any identifying details on them so your landlord will not know what is in them. The only way the landlord could find out is if he opened your letters and he had better not be doing that.

 

There are lots of members here who have had vast experience of RLPs dubious practices and I fully agree with them.

 

Your friend will get quite a few letters, each more intimidating than the last but it is her best interest to resist. When a debt collector starts writing this usually means it is coming to the end.

 

Do not worry about any statement RLP make about potential employers seeing details on the database that RLP hold as RLP cannot divulge any information without permission.

 

When they took the card details, did they take the card number as well? I haven't heard that RLP take money direct but it may be wise to get another card.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Appreciate your reply Rebel and Silverfox.....

 

My Freind says that they took the card probably to note the name on it as she did not have anyother ID card alongwith.

Anyways we would be leaving this house in a month as already we had planned for the same.

We are shifting in the same locality. Is it possible for the RLP team to track our address as well and start sending post to my new address.

 

What would happen if reply stating address changed, would it be ok and they stop sending posts

What I would do is to set up a mail redirect with Royal mail so that she still gets the letters. It is inexpensive. This is just in case.

 

Please note, RLP cannot take any court action against your friend. ONLY Boots can do that and they are as reluctant as the rest of the retail trade after a court case where a certain retailer got spanked.

If she did not leave the store she did not commit an offence . It is only after someone walks out of the store that they MAY have committed an offence [but even then they have not definitely committed an offence].

 

So for your friend to even consider paying them is crazy.

 

Even if your friend did walk out the store she still owes nothing as they would have taken back the perfume so she is in the clear with nothing to worry about. Do not even think about paying them.
