Hi Everyone,

I do hope I canget some help, I have red many posts and the work you guys do here is great. :whoo:

On 18th August I got stopped by a Revenue Protection Officer.

I always buy a weekly Zone 1-4 travel card which is fine as I live in zone 4

sometimes when I sleep at my girlfriend’s house (who lives in zone 5) I do not beep in at that station but beep in at Finsbury Park.

 

The ‘officer’ saw me beep in at Finsbury park and took my oyster card and I gave my details...

.. and said I’ll receive a letter, he explained that they just want their money back

 

I was surprised and scared that this letter arrived stating their intention to take me to court,

this will ruin my career opportunities and I did not realise the severity of my actions.

– I will never do this again but I do not know how to reply,

I want to settle this out of court.

 

On the letter the details of the 9 offences

each are:

 

• having paid the fare for a certain distance, knowingly and wilfully proceeding by train beyond that distance without previously paying the additional fare for the additional distance and with intent to avoid payment thereof or

 

do I ask for their evidence?

Does this mean they can prove 9 times I didn’t pay for the extra zone charge?

 

I just want to settle this out of court

I know it will cost but I will pay whatever it is even though i am an apprentice on minimum wage.

 

Please someone help me. I need to reply to the letter by next week

 

Kind regards and many thanks in advance.

Seems quite simple to me, just write showing your remorse and make them an offer, Im not sure if anyone here can actually suggest an amount, maybe £200 ?

 

Doesnt really matter if 9 is a lot, it clearly shows that it wasnt a one off and that you could be considered a serial offender. I assume this is an Oyster card ?

Thanks for your reply, and yes it was an oyster card.

 

If I write a letter

do you think they'd not accept it and take me to court anyway if I offer money which is not enough for them,

 

 

do I ask them how much would they think is reasonable an out of court settlement

 

 

or just say like I offer £200 and see what they say?

 

:O

don't offer a sum.

 

 

simply briefly and with remorse

offer to pay any reasonable admin costs and equivalent fine sums to avoid a criminal record

as this will effect your future and your employment prospects.

I think you need to think how many times you have done this before.

 

You are going to need to admit to multiple fraudulent acts, and apologise for them.

 

I suspect they won't be too impressed if you try and claim this is your first time, especially as Oyster usage data is retained for years!

 

A rail company normally settles for around £100-£200 for a SINGLE offence, I suspect to settle NINE offences, you're looking at a 4 figure sum.
