Hi, I am over 18 and I was shopping at a major store last week,

I bought about 12 items but one of the items I threw into my trolley landed directly into the carrier bags I had brought to store.

 

I was stopped by security exiting the store and taken to the back room where I was videoed and had my driving licence taken for ID and a CR check

 

. The police were not called as the item was under £20 in value

, I was told I was/would be banned for 12 months

and that an RLP company would be in touch to recover £80 - £120.

 

I have two questions:

1. Should I pay the RLP company

2. I am travelling to America in the summer, can any of this affect my visa application?

 

Many Thanks

 

Brenda

Forget about it totally

 

Respond to nothing

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...

Hi and welcome to CAG

 

No

 

No

 

your answers

 

They have no loss just send threatograms

 

Extortion comes to mind!

 

sure other will agree

 

That is the simplest explanation EVER. Nice one!

 

You will get many letters from RLP stating they can do this that and the other but in reality, they can't. The only people that could take action is Tesco except they won't. Stores pass the responsibiity on to RLP in the hope that RLP can get something and then take a share of the revenue.

 

If a store gets back the items in saleable condition or a shoplifter pays for the goods then there is no claim.

 

Please read other threads to get an idea of the tricks RLP may pull and if you get worried that they are going to do something, come back and advice will be forthcoming.

 

In the meantime, ignore them.

Hi I got a DWF letter on the 10th looking for the value of the item (although I thought they would be resellable) and £125.00 fixed costs.

On a side note I was told I was banned for 12 months by security but did not sign anything, will I get a letter from Tesco re this or is their word enough? Also if the 'interview with security' was recorded they stated clearly I would be charged between £80.00 and £120.00, small point but is this some form of failure on their part giving me false or misleading information, also some people mention being given a letter explaining RLP at the time and I wasn't is this a requirement?

I had forgotten that DWF took over from RLP at Tesco however the advice remains the same. Just because they are a firm of solicitors means nothing. They cannot do anything to you.

 

Tesco would have to instruct DWF to sue but they don't as the lies would come out over this 'charge'. Highly unlikely you will get anything from Tesco as once they pass the case on to these chancers their role ceases.

 

Ignore
