I recently, and very stupily, stole an item worth £25 from a Morrisons store.

 

I was challenged at the door by the store detective accompanied by security person and store manager.

 

I was taken to a room and when showed evidence (the empty wrapping) i admitted the theft.

I offered to pay which was accepted and i paid with cash.

 

My name and address was obtained and recorded and

 

i was was issued with a letter barring me from all Morrisons stores.

 

A feel dreadful about this, but more anxious about the possibility of receiving a 'fine' from the firm of solicitors DWF.

 

What is the lilelihood of this given that i paid for the item?

 

 

Thank you in advance.

You paid, it's your property.

 

 

Nothing hey can do to you.

 

 

Move on with your life and don't so it again.

 

 

Ignore dwf as they have absolutely no cause to do anything.

 

 

And they can never touch you.

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..

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...

My first time using this forum.

So not sure if i am doing this correctly?.

 

My main concern is receiving a letter at home.

 

My partner is suffering enough without this added stress.

 

Any tips?

it will be a letter in an enveolope, not a brass band outside your house. The matter has been dealt with by you paying for the item and the store banning you. Nothing and no-one else has anything to add to this that is lawful

 

First time I have smiled today. The thought of a brass band!!!

Hi and welcome.

Now that Morrisons have passed the file to DWF, they will have washed their hands of you and as such will not get involved further. It would be pointless to contact the manager or offer any donation.

DWF are a solicitor and the letters will look official but they are the same as any letter from their rival, RLP. In over 4 years, there has never been any court claim regarding losses caused by shoplifting. At the top of this forum is a sticky which I did that should explain a little further and although that is aimed at RLP, the rules are the same.

 

DWF will send a letter demanding around £150 for security costs. They cannot claim this, simple as.

 

When you get it, let us know and we can rip it apart. There is nothing you can do to stop the letters apart from paying them which is something we do not recommend, mainly as two wrongs do not make a right. They have no legal grounds to claim anything. Morrisons have not lost out so there can be no claim.

 

All we say is, don't do it again.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Thank you Silver fox. Much appreciated . This act will never be repeated. I was in such a horrid position I cannot recall much of the event. I feel I only woke up when the store detective approached me. I am so grateful for yours and other's replies.

Just ignore any letters from DWF. Do not go sending letters to morrisons as they wont let you back. Find another supermarket to shop at and move on with your life, and dont do it again!

Just a thought. You say your partner is going through some things at the moment. While this may seem a bad idea, it may help if you say something so that when the letters arrive, you will not have to hide them. You also mention that your memory was off. Have you been to see your GP? Is it possible your partners issues are having a detrimental affect on you?

Sometimes it will help to talk to a real person and your GP will treat what you say in confidence.

There is no claim, no loss so as per the others ignore them, then ignore them some more.

We could do with some help from you.
