Hi all,

 

I was caught shoplifting a couple of cheap basics from primark.

Technically I hadn’t left the store when they called me in to their little room,

 

I was still in the premises but instead of arguing I was going to pay I just said I was sorry.

I saw that the guy wasn’t going to believe anything I say!

So I just begged him not to call the police and he didn’t.

 

They took a copy of my ID and gave me the notice of intended civil recovery letter which I keep reading about on the forum to ignore once I get it.

But I am afraid to ignore it and willing to pay the fine.

 

I have 3 main questions:

 

1. If I do pay the fine, is it considered an admittance of guilt?

 

2. From the store they told me if I don’t receive the letter to follow up and phone that company - should I? Or just leave it and wait?

 

3. About criminal record and dbs.

I work as a teacher so I always need an enhanced DBS certificate.

Would it show on it? If so, I would lose my teaching job so it’s very important To prevent this.

 

How? And since the police was never called it means I was notCharged so why would it snow on the enhanced DBS? Please help!

As per the above - ignore all correspondence and nothing will happen except getting more scary letters but they will eventually stop. Paying them will achieve nothing except enhancing the pay packets of RLP staff

 

And for God's sake stop stealing - it only takes one report to the Police and even if not charged, it could quite easily show on the enhanced disclosure that you need for your job!


Any advice given is done so on the assumption that recipients will also take professional advice where appropriate.

Thanks for the advice but I think I will pay it because I’m too scared! But you mentioned that there is a chance for it to be recorded in the enhanced disclosure? Or do you mean if the police was involved only? So scared! I really can’t have it show on the enhanced! :(

Why pay this so called charge? All you are doing is financing someones lifestyle on the backs of those who are usually poor or have some sort of mental illness?

If you've looked at other threads, you'll see the consistent advice (for customers, not staff) is not to pay. If you were going to pay anyhow, there seems little point in posting about it.

 

 

But you mentioned that there is a chance for it to be recorded in the enhanced disclosure? Or do you mean if the police was involved only? So scared! I really can’t have it show on the enhanced! :(

 

That seems to me a very good reason not to shoplift (if you have a job where you know it'd be a disaster if it showed on an eDBS). If there are medical probems which have led you to do so, I'd suggest getting them addressed with your GP ASAP (if you were tempted to shoplift again, you might not be so lucky next time, and the police might then become involved ....)

a teacher but not smart enough to do your homework.

Read all of the threads about RLP, aspecially the older ones.

you will be tested on this tomorrow when you come back with your next question.

 

It can never show on the enhanced DBS for a number of reasons,

Jackie at RLP likes to think that she is the oracle on criminality bit she would have been involved in dozens of libel cases if she did try and report.

They are in it for the money and that is all.

they rely on guilt and lies to get you to pay them

Hi and welcome to CAG.

Other members have been a little critical of you (as they should) but knowledge is a more powerful tool. Please bear with me.

 

The fact you were stopped whilst still in the store is irrelevent. You stole, security did their job.

 

You WILL get letters from RLP demanding some fictitious amount from you. This is usually around £150 but could be less depending on the total value of the items. Items not recovered or in poor saleable condition CAN be claimed for with a small administration fee but not the inflated amount demanded by RLP. Any sucker that pays RLP will see that payment shared between RLP and Primark with RLP getting the lions share so this will disprove any suggestion that each event causes £300-500 of expense. The costs of security are borne by the store and are a core part of their business. They want people to handle the goods and therefore must bear the costs of preventing theft. These costs are recovered from paying members of the public at the tills.

Can you imagine a scenario when security are paid ONLY if they catch a shoplifter. No security company would accept that. Security staff are paid to monitor (via CCTV), walk the shop floor, detect and prevent crime and to deal with the administration caused by shoplifting. This is their contract (or very similar).

 

RLP state that they are there as a prevention and deterrent to shoplifting. Not true. They are there purely to make money from people who do not know what is right. While we on CAG do not condone shoplifting, we also believe that 'two wrongs don't make a right' and RLP are certainly a wrong. It is my belief that all shoplifting events should be dealt with by the police, even if, in your case, it meant something on an enhanced disclosure. That is what the law is for.

 

Now, RLP have no legal power over you-ever! You are not required to pay them one single penny. I like to call these speculative invoices. It is an invitation to line the pockets of RLP.

 

As pokice action was not taken, there will be nothing on a CRB check, standard or enhanced however, RLP have a database of 'Alleged Shoplifters' That can only be disclosed with your permission. Next month, the new Data protection rules come into play so I hope this data base will go. RLP state that future emplyers can access the database (with your consent) to check if a potential employee is of good character. I have not heard of anyone using this system.

 

So, after all that, my advice is ignore RLP and any potential debt collector (who have even less power than RLP) and don't steal 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 very much for this helpful reply.

If there is such database is still very bad because if I refuse my employer to access it makes me guilty of hiding something!

 

I just feel horrible and I was thinking to reapply for a new enhanced dbs check to check if there will be something.

 

How long can I wait to do it?

And if it does show something, can I contact a lawyer or someone to make it go away?

Is that even an option?

You can’t apply for your own eDBS.

Only an employer can apply for it (or its update).

 

If there is a factual entry (or, for “other information at chief officer’s discretion” a ‘reasonably held belief’), then you cannot insist on it being amended.

I just had a look at RLP's website to see if it says anything about the supposed database. It says this:

 

What Personal Data do you hold?

 

If you are 16 years or over you are advised that basic personal information regarding your wrongful act may be held on a national database of individuals involved in civil recovery incidents. This information is available to prospective employers within client companies with a legitimate interest to screen an individual’s integrity in relation to employment decisions. No screening can take place without your knowledge or consent, which would be requested during the recruitment process. This information is held within a closed user group in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998 for a period not exceeding 3 years if 16 or 17 years old at the time of the incident or 6 years if 18 years or over. This information may also be available for the purposes of crime prevention and detection and available to the Courts, legal advisors, crime partnerships and the police where there is a legitimate reason for doing so in accordance with the Act.

 

Note: The only employers it's available to are companies that are clients of RLP so there is no possibility of a school using it. No school would be a client of RLP because they aren't retail businesses.

 

And in any case paying RLP wouldn't remove you from the database!

 

Their website has gone very quiet about court cases since they lost big time at Oxford in 2012. No cases at all have been listed on the website since then. I wonder why that could be? And of those listed prior to then most were either thefts by staff or default judgements where alleged shoplifter (foolishly) ignored the court papers.

Thank you.

 

This database has nothing to do with dbs checks?

 

And when I fill out forms about any crimes and records etc or even civil issues I still say None?

Nothing WHATSOEVER to do with DBS checks. Neither DBS checks nor employers own application forms ask about civil actions you have been involved in. They ask only about criminal offences for which you have received a conviction or official penalty or sanction.

 

I work professionally with schools recruitment and I'm very familiar with Enhanced DBS applications.

 

The relevant question on the application form is Question e55 and reads

“Do you have any convictions, cautions, reprimands or final warnings, which would not be filtered in line with guidance?”. You don't.

 

The corresponding guidance says

"section e, question 55 is asked for Police National Computer (PNC) matching purposes."

 

Only those can be listed on the Police National Computer [PNC]

(which is what the DBS Disclosure does, confirms if anything is listed about you on the PNC) and you don't have any of them.

 

The DBS procedure does not check databases held by any private company such as RLP, nor could it legally do so, and nor can RLP or any other private database enter information onto the PNC.

 

Although on an Enhanced DBS the police can also add "other relevant [non-conviction] information" this is very rare and in practice would only be information relevant to the risk to children that someone applying to work in a school presented.

 

My LA told me that since DBS started they have never received a DBS for school emplyees showing any "other relevant [non-conviction] information".

there is no evidence they do that at all

that's why they sign up to the spoofing RLP

 

seriously

you are a teacher, you should know better

both on the front of even attempting to shoplift

and

getting spoofed by sc@mmers like RLP..

 

as someone in education for +30yrs

forget all about this happening now

 

go get on with your future life

and those you teach.....
