Hi there, seen a lot of people able to help out others in sticky situations as this one, so here goes!

 

My daughter, now 20 received a letter (maybe 2nd/3rd letter? she can't remember) from the RLP

stating she must pay the £150 owed

'where it is alleged you were involved in a wrongful act and were apprehended as a result of your actions' at a TK MAXX store in 2012.

 

 

When this first came to my attention and I looked over forums like this,

 

 

I was told that letters from the RLP are all threat and no action,

and was advised to ignore them as they tend to disappear within 9-18 months.

 

 

She said she was taken into the security room, and held for 5-10mins, police weren't called and the goods that she took her were returned.

 

Should we be worried that it's now three years on, and they're still writing to her?

 

 

Will my address be marked/blacklisted because of this as she still lives at home, as her home address is my home address.

 

Thanks in advance!

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...

Thanks for your response dx100uk.

 

Would this still be the case even though the incident will be 3 years in November? My daughter has just started Uni and i really don't want this following her (or us!!) around.

 

I know that we'd do best to ignore the letters, but you'd think after three years they'd give it a bloody rest haha

Yes ignore them

 

All they ever want is money

To line their pocket

Nothing ever goes to the retailer

 

They are not the law

Are not backed by any laws

And can never be backed by it

Hi and welcome to CAG

 

This does happen on occasion. Due to this site (and others I assume) RLP are finding it hard to make the profits they used to so they recycle cases that have had no response.

 

All you need to remember is that RLP can do nothing....ever! Only the store that was involved could take any action and after 3 years, if they were serious, they would have done so by now.

 

File the letters in the most suitable place you can think of (shredder?) and get on with life. Nothing will happen except RLPs costs increase which is a good thing :lol:

Its odd they use the word alleged, they seem to be admitting that the person in question maybe wasnt involved and therefore there can be no amount due.

 

Even Criminals are 'allegedly' innocent until proven guilty. I imagine this is the same principle in civil cases.

 

With RLP, the onus is on the 'alleged' shoplifter to prove no wrongdoing as opposed to the store (not RLP) proving guilt via the courts. Hiding to nowhere comes to mind!

Since these letters are just requests for funds from you then please feel free to decline the request that you pay. Move on now and forget this, now action can be taken after 6 months from the date of the offence, its all over now....
