On 28th July I was falsely accused of shoplifting by a very intimidating security guard at Tesco.

 

 

I was marched into an office at the rear of the store and the duty manager called.

 

 

I was accused of concealing a mascara under my bag in my trolley.

I explained that I had place it there to stop it falling out and that I had had a long emotionally hot draining day at training and was not concentrating.

 

 

They then found a birthday card and a pack of pens and some spot cream that I had also forgotten about

- having paid for the rest of my shopping I offered to pay immediately and explained my lack of focus.

 

 

I was told that I had already had the opportunity to pay and they had cctv to prove I had concealed the mascara.

As the items were less than £10 they said that they would not involve the police.

I (stupidly ?) supplied my name and address and was issued a life time ban from all stores in the UK.

 

I received a letter from RLP saying I owe £147.50 for this "act of wrong doing".

 

 

Having not read this forum at the time I replied by email stating that I would not pay as this was a genuine mistake

and that I had offered to pay for the items on 2 occasions.

 

 

I have now received a 2nd letter saying that I now owe £90 and that if I had paid for the items after being apprehended

it would not be a deterrant to me doing this again!!

 

1. Should I just ignore this after stating my innocence and mistake?

 

2. Can I be arrested for trespass if I enter any Tesco store and petrol station ( yes I asked them this at the time! was in shock) ?

 

Many thanks in advance - wish I had read this forum before emailing them!

Sorry to be pedantic, but you were "falsely accused" of walking out of the store because you forgot to pay for "a mascara under my bag in my trolley, a birthday card and a pack of pens and some spot cream that I had also forgotten about".

That's a lot to forget about.

You had a trolley, so where did you conceal these items?

How much was the shopping?

A packet of crisps?

Sometimes I feel for the ruthless retailers employing mean security guards.

doesn't matter what happened.

 

 

there is no place for RLP

and no place for profiteering like they do

the money goes to their pocket anyway!
