I'm just absolutely petrified of things being taken further because of me ignoring the letters

 

Nothing will ever happen to you as a result of ignoring RLP. They have sent out thousands of these letters to thousands of people since 2012. Not a single one was taken to court or had anything done by RLP. In fact, if they do take you to court, i will personally go with you, and give you £1000. Thats how sure i am that it wont happen.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

Hi, i still have not replied to the letter from RLP

 

 

i failed to mention that i was made to sign a community resolution form from the police.

 

does this make a difference with ignoring the RLP?

 

 

if i keep ignoring will the police become involved because i signed this form?

 

there's not a day that goes by where im not worrying about this

The police and RLP are entirely different entities. It matters not one jot what the police did as RLP don't get access to police databases. Remember, this is purely a money making scheme and nothing to do with deterrents. In fact, I would go as far as saying that RLP want shoplifting to continue or else their ONLY money coming in would dry up overnight.

Let me paint a picture for you.

 

You have made a mistake.

Say you gave me your address

And I wrote to you saying "you are a naughty person, give me £100 or I will take you to court"

 

Do you think I could do that?

 

The answer is NO, and exactly the same applies to RLP.

iv been told from another source that because i have signed the 'community resolution form' given to me by the police

and if i dont complete the resolution (which im guessing is to pay the money to RLP)

then the case could be returned to the justice system.

 

im petrified

 

all items were returned in a saleable condition and i accepted a ban from the shop

 

 

. is the resolution form referring to those things or is it referring to a payment to the RLP (which i have been advised to ignore)

 

im very confused.

 

 

do the police and RLP have contact with one another?

Do you have a copy of this form?

 

Morally that is beyond the pale.

 

Can you upload a copy of it (PDF format with all personal and identifiable info removed)

i am unsure how to upload but the form has my name, address, DOB and it is written that i was caught shoplifting

 

it then states

 

 

'the victim has intimated that she/he is willing to have this matter dealt with informally and provide you an opportunity to make recompense for your actions.

 

 

this is voluntary and if you agree and complete the process you will not be subject to any further police investigation,

 

 

failure to complete the agreed actions will result in legal action being taken against you'

http://www.communityresolution.co.uk/guidelines-on-community-resolutions.html

 

4.4 compliance

 

4.4.1 A CR is an agreement entered into between offender and victim, and, as a result, the officer must explain to both parties that this is a voluntary agreement which will not be directly enforceable by the police in all but the most exceptional circumstances.

 

 

As far as I am concerned, the victim is the store, NOT RLP, therefore an agreement asking you to pay RLP is not enforceable and has no legal basis.

 

2.3.2 Outcomes can; -

 

Be instant - an apology (In person or via letter) and/or reparation (repairing or paying the damage loss)

 

Again, all items were returned in a salable condition, no loss to the store occurred, therefore asking you to pay for no losses to a party (RLP) that lost nothing breaks the guidelines for the order.

 

This is just after a quick skim of the document, I suspect you have nothing to worry about.

As mentioned in my previous post, the police and RLP have nothing in common.

 

Community resolution has nothing to do with RLP

 

I also want to see that letter as if RLP are saying they 'WILL' take legal action then that is a lie as they are not in any position to do so. Only the store can instigate legal action.

Hi I have received my second letter today. I have attached a picture. The letter is titled 'letter before claim'

 

Can you read through this and let me know if this is a 'normal' second letter from the RLP? It has come just before my uni exams and I'm already incredibly stressed. If this is a usual letter, am I still safe to ignore all letters?

 

Also they sent a FAQ sheet and it says their claim is NOT a speculative invoice...which is different to what I've been told :(

I just need to know if I am safe to ignore this letter and also any other future letters from them.

 

here

 

The quality of the picture isn't good, sorry.

It basically says I owe £147.50....'this does not include any amount for the property or cash as these were fully recovered'

And it also says 'ignoring he letter before claim may lead to the claimant starting proceedings and may increase your liability for costs'

 

I am on an iPad so unsure how to convert images. I have given you a basic jist of the letter in my previous post

Can you convert the image to a pdf file please as the image you have posted is a little small for my ageing eyes :-)

 

can you also do the same with the extra letter as this may be one I have not seen before.

 

I suspect the Letter Before Claim is one we have seen before but all you need to remember is that RLP can not take you to court!

I am also moving out of this address in a month.

 

 

My mail won't be redirected...will most probably be put in the bin by the next tenants.

 

 

They won't inform the police and track me down to my new address will they?

 

Is it a good thing that I won't be able to see the letters they send after next month?
