Very much doubt anything will happen.

 

Most shoplifting is now only dealt with by stores themselves sometimes using a retail loss prevention company to write to you. But as they don't have your address from ID, I doubt you will get any letter. Even if you did get a letter, it would be safe to ignore it.

 

Nothing will happen, but the security and managers at the Waitrose store will refuse you entering if they see you.

 

Just don't do it again, as stores will involve Police if people repeat shoplift from stores.

We could do with some help from you.

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

 

Waitrose use RLP to chase these 'invoices' however you are within your rights to just ignore them-totally. Never respond to them. The more people we can get to understand that RLP have no legal obligation to force payment from you the sooner this 'company' goes bust.

We on CAG will never say that shoplifting is right BUT companies that prey on consumer ignorance should never be allowed to get away with it. I always say that the police should be involved as they are the best to deal with situations like this and usually for first time offenders, the shock of police attendance is enough to stop first timers in their tracks.

 

If you are under 18 or in a troubled family then different advice would be offered. RLP stamp their name on the front of envelopes so if this would cause trouble for you, it would be better to deal with it at an early stage.

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

So you don't have a UK address? If so, it's highly unlikely RLP will write to your Srilankan address.

 

RLP have great difficulty writing to foreign addresses as it would be a pointless excercise.

 

I included the above statement not knowing your age or where you lived. A lot of shoplifters are under 18 and as such the advice would have been to write to them and insist that all letters be sent to another UK address.

 

Regarding your visa. If you are intending to renew it in the future, this event will have no effect to your application, even if the renewal form asks whether you have been convicted of a crime. The honest answer is NO.

 

If RLP don't have an address for you in the UK, they won't be able to send anything.

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