Hello,

 

When I was 13 I was with a friend was shoplifting from boots,

I'd let her put stuff in my bag too because she didn't have room and

I'd given up arguing (it was wrong I know all of that but she was my friend then and I was young)

 

We were taken into the small room and the security guard told me that although I wasn't shoplifting

I was as much to blame as an accomplice and that I was banned for life from every boots nationwide,

 

 

I vaguely remember signing something however NO picture was taken of me

and I was not issued a fine (as I've seen from other members).

 

 

My father paid the amount for the goods that were in my bag and my friends mum did the same for her.

 

I still remember being scared out my wits even to walk past it and crying and we were taken home in a police car and the police man told my father about everything.

 

I am now 20 and I've been in many boots since including that one and never had any problem even when paying with debit cards.

 

 

Is this ban still in place?

 

 

Can I apply for a boots loyalty card?

 

Thank you.

dx

please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Why don't you give it a try ? If you are given the Loyalty card, then you can come and tell us. That would put a lot of peoples' minds at ease.

The worst thing that can happen is that you get declined, that could be for lots of different reasons and not the one you are thinking of.
