    • This is submitted by My Father with my full permission     Diary of Sweden 2019 to date Last update 23/06/2021   Document list: Letter from Transport Styrelsen 290519 Letter to Transport Styrelsen 141220 Certificate from Kronofogden sent 150520 received 130221 Essex magistrates letter 120221 Documents received 130221 in Swedish Letter from Kronofogden sent 150520 received 130221 Letter from Kronofogden 150321 Letter with new hearing date 060421 Notes on appearing in court Swedish translation   Data between inverted commas is file name   15th May 2019 I was stopped at the border having arrived from Denmark. I was several hours behind other drivers in our convoy of articulated trucks You need to add what happened to you include tests and results where you were taken how long held what they did with truck including damage when they moved it. Did they speak to you in English at all times, was their English understandable, was any paperwork translated into an English hard copy, were you given option of having English translations When were you released including taking you licence away. Did they offer any assistance? Were you offered the assistance of a legal representative and legal aid.     The only part in the English Language is “Letter from Transport Styrelsen 290519” and that was about 5 lines on the second page saying I could send a statement to not lose my driving licence rights in Sweden All other paperwork sent to Chelmsford address is in Swedish only so no idea what the charges were and I was not at any stage offered the services of a translator. The “Essex magistrates letter of 120221” point 6 says I was offered the chance of a reply. That was only true if I could speak Swedish. I have tried running all the paperwork sent to me through a translator and it makes no sense whatever.   The statement they have sent to court Documents received 130221 in Swedish are wrong, I was not given the right to reply, just said I could make a statement about retaining my right to drive in Sweden. This was the only opportunity I had to defend myself. In the “Letter from Kronofogden sent 150520 received 130221” sent with the Essex Magistrates letters was dated 15/05/2020 is that now out of date for action, also that’s in English so there is no excuse for other documentation not to be in English Kronofogden states that no letters were returned to them, this is not true as my father sent at least two of them back as Not at this address as I have moved twice since this incident In the “Certificate from Kronofogden sent 150520 received 130221” it states I was Drunk driving, that is not true as I was breathalysed and that read completely clean, I was not given results of blood and urine tests. The Certificate does not split up the fines for the two offences, only the fine and the Sum of money to the Public Fund. On the European framework list that was sent to me in document "Essex magistrates letter 120221" and also the Certificate the only offence was 34. Smuggling of goods. Drunk driving was not one of the offences to be included on the list, therefore I should not have to pay the full amount and as the amounts only show total for fines and not each offence separately I should not have to pay total amount I should only pay the fine for the offence of smuggling. As they have not itemised fines then this should be dismissed. If not please ask for time to pay after looking at my financial statement.   11th May 2021 Attended magistrates court with my father who had much of the information and understanding of the correspondence. He was stopped at the entrance and refused entry, they then ushered me in straight up to wait outside the courtroom so I could not get the information from my Father. This was stated as Covid rules; the legal people arrived and just walked through with no questions asked. One Paralegal (who happened to be black) was stopped and refused entry even though she arrived with her client, there was a huge argument and the Court manager was requested by the paralegal. This is not the way to give justice to people. In the “Certificate from Kronofogden sent 150520 received 130221” it states I was Drunk driving, that is not true as I was breathalysed and that read completely clean, I was not given results of blood and urine tests. The Certificate does not split up the fines for the two offences, only the fine and the Sum of money to the Public Fund. On the European framework list that was sent to me in document "Essex magistrates letter 120221" and also the Certificate the only offence was 34. Smuggling of goods. Drunk driving was not one of the offences to be included on the list, therefore I should not have to pay the full amount and as the amounts only show total for fines and not each offence separately I should not have to pay total amount I should only pay the fine for the offence of smuggling. As they have not itemised fines then this should be dismissed. The Magistrate stated that they were not concerned with original case where the fine was given only this one, so judgement was given against me. They said the judgement would be sent to me   To present: I have up to present not received a copy of the judgement I have had three copies of further action sent to me, one at my old address and when I informed them again (as I did in court} they sent another two copies of the further action letter to me.   Letter from Transport Styrelsen 290519.docx Letter from Transport Styrelsen 290519.pdf Letter re further steps notice 020621.pdf Letter to Essex enforcement office 160621.doc Letter to Transport Styrelsen 141220.docx Letter with new hearing date 060421.pdf Notes on appearing in court.pdf Queries for solicitor.docx Swedish translations.docx Certificate from Kronofogden sent 150520 received 130221.pdf Documents received 130221 in Swedish.pdf Essex magistrates letter 120221.pdf Letter from Kronofogden 150321.pdf

Hi all.

I have spent hours browsing through the RLP threads and they are very helpful. Thank you!

 

Short version...

I am in my 20's and recently (incredibly stupidly) took something worth under £15 from tk maxx and was stopped.

 

 

Security guard was very fair.

I told him of mental health problems and he dealt with it in store.

No police.

Usual ban and rlp print off.

I am currently waiting for letter.

 

I fully understand the position the forum has in dealing with RLP and plan to follow by the letter.

 

 

My question is if the company start ringing the house am I able to ask them (via letter) to remove the number from my account?

 

 

I recently moved back with parents due to my health and don't want them to know.

I know from experience with DCA's you can threaten financial ombudsman but what about these guys?

 

Any help would be great and thanks in advance!

Trust me I will never do this ever again,

I'm completely ashamed.

Hello Welcome,

 

AFAIK, RLP haven't learned how to use the phone yet, all they do is send out childish threat letters which you ignore.

 

Never heard of them calling people? Besides you wouldn't ''ask'' them to kindly stop calling, you inform them if they continue to do so, you will report them to the police for harassment.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

Thanks for the quick reply bazooka. I think you are probably right but it was on another forum ) where someone had received many calls. Fingers crossed though...

Hmm I'm not sure if that would be a breach of the DPA?

Did you give the security your contact number?

They wont ring you at all. They know better than to do that.

 

They will send a few letters out with a bunch of drivel hoping youll pay up. Nothing in the letters has any bearing on reality and you can safely ignore them.

 

They cant do anything. Even genuine shoplifters know this and just laugh at them and carry on. Thats how pathetic and powerless RLP are.

 

As for other forums and calls, you need to understand. People lie and will scare others. RLP have been known in the past to create various accounts on websites to pretend they are shoplifters who think RLP can do stuff, hoping people in similar situations believe them and pay up.

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 and welcome from me.

 

Whilst this may be not what you want to hear, i would tell your parents (on the assumption that you don't have a broken home) as RLP use a franking machine that states "Retail Loss Prevention" on the front of the letter. It may be fine for some time but there may come a day when you are questioned about the letters. This is not designed to scare you but to inform you of what may happen.

 

You did not give them your home phone number nor a mobile number. I suspect the chap on the other thread did so hence the calls. IF you did ring them (DON'T) you should withhold your number.

TKMaxx don't do court. The store security staff are paid irrespective of whether they catch anyone or not. They got the stuff back so no loss to anyone.

RLP can't do court. They can only recommend to TKMaxx to do so therefore any letter is as toothless as me :!:

 

In the other thread linked here there is yet another link to a Gov. publication. I believe the guidance has now been combined with the Consumer Rights Act 2015 so should you feel harassed my the letters and if they happen to get your phone number and bombard you with calls, you have rights to redress from them.

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

That's very helpful advice. I have told my sister (who doesn't live at home) but not parents as a lot is going on right now. I think I can get the first letter without them seeing and then tell my dad before the second comes. I am extremely anxious about it and telling him would be better in the long run.

 

I worked myself up over the phone calls after I looked up my last name and postcode on one of the phonebook sites (number was found). Again if I told my parents this would be less of a concern.

 

Thank you for giving me your point of view it's cleared things up a lot!

 

I'll keep you updated if anything major happens.

They wont call you. Try not to worry. They would be in serious breach of the DPA if they did. If they are stupid enough to call, try and record it or log the call, and file a formal complaint

Not often I disagree with you but, in my opinion they could ring so long as they do not disclose anything to any third party. If one of the OPs parents took the call and RLP disclosed what the call was about, yes, that is a DPA breach.

Fair point. However, surely theyd be in breach of some rule if they werent given the phone number but instead took to social media etc to find it.
