    • As I recall the only thing you tried telling us was based on a quote that you selectively edited by Lord James of Blackheath. You misrepresented it as a statement of fact when it was actually a question which was laughed at by his peers in the House of Lords.  We told you it was garbage, you asked us to prove it and we did.   Remember?
    • you need to realise that for every person that does come to CAG and register and tell their story...there are poss 10'000 that don't but search the interweb whereby threads that are here pop up relating to like issues they are searching upon.   Most CAG siteteam and many other registered Caggers give advice that bears this in mind and post information which not only informs the starter of a thread upon what to do, but also takes into consideration the readers from the interweb that also read the relevant advice given that might not be brave enough to register and fess up.   to that end, there is very little alternative than to appear to give 'grief' [you deserve it - tough] to a cagger should certain previous advice not have been followed.....yours is a very classic case of such. hey I've found a backdoor CCJ.   to put it bluntly, had you have followed such previous advice, you most certainly would not be in the situation you are in here now.. .so by example, not giving you grief, for future readers...………..   ...never ever move without informing a debt owner of a move of address on any consumer debt that you last used or paid within the last say 7yrs. your credit file is a major key to ascertaining that information.... .but don't just read this advice come to the consumeractiongroup.co.uk website and let us help.   lecture over... what can you do..or more importantly....what can a claimant do now they have a default forthwith judgement against you. well we can't guess.... they might simply ignore it as 1000's of people with CCJ's find out..but it becomes an issue should you wish to say get a mortgage, remortgage or further credit.   i'm not going to enter into any of that here...that's for the reader to start a thread here and seek advice on their individual situation specific to them as you have done....   so...  bearing the all of the above in mind...over to you with regard to this backdoor CCJ.   as for the other debts that you didn't action before...go read your old thread and action what appropriate advice is given there for each type of debt that has been given should you wish to avoid any further backdoor CCJ's.   dx                    
    • hello my very good helpful friend. I am afraid to say that i did not. As i did not realise the relevance of it.   Should i be doing this right now of anyone on my credit file ?   Plz don't give me grief if u have already advised me...   do i do the ccs request now to everybody in that thread ?    
    • aha busted and stupid ...no wonder you've got mixed information here. never trust anything they say ..they have a very bad reputation for stating the truth.   now can you go get your credit file please..   there are cases whereby a council on historic CTAX debts do go for a county court CCJ, but a liability order from a magistrates court has far more clout legally than a county court CCJ and i've never heard of a court sending a bailiff out for 'multiple' CCJ collection.   me thinks he is pulling the wool here a bit and has looked at your credit file and seen CCJ's too so thought he'd chance his arm and use those as further leverage.   don't worry about the sat visit simply ignore do not answer the door if he appears. your task is too gather data at present.   credit file please..

I stole from primark, stupid choice and will never happen again. The goods totalled to £53 and I was told that, because of this, the police had been notified but will not show up today. This leads me to believe I will hear from them - will this happen?

 

Regarding RLP, everyone has said to ignore the letters which is exactly what I'll do. My only concern is the debt collectors - will they show up at my house? Or just letters?

 

The security guard took my passport and photocopied it with my address and mobile number. The local mall security also showed up and took my details. I know I'm banned from this store and now on some sort of list that, if I'm seen, they have to keep an eye on me.

 

Basically, will there be any outcome from the police for this matter? I'm 21, female. I have never done this before and I am extremely embarrassed by it. I don't want my family or other half finding out, so will the letters be it? Thanks

Ignore.

 

Then when you've done that, ignore some more. Over time you'll get some more begging letters, at which point you ignore them.

 

They may (might) pass this onto debt colectors, in which case you can send them the "in dispute" letter to get them off your back. Ask here for specific advice when and if that ever happens

Hi and welcome to CAG. This is the second case I have seen where Primark have involved the police and both times the value of goods stolen were above £50 so this seems to be their policy which (to me) is the better option than passing the details onto RLP. Unfortunately, Primark do both! The police AND RLP. Two wrongs do not make a right as the saying goes. You did wrong but by Primark passing this on to RLP, they too did wrong.

 

 

On CAG, we are all for getting the police involved and stopping civil claims altogether as these so called costs, do not exist except in the mind of RLP. The store got the goods back so no loss there. Security are paid whether they catch anyone or not so there could be no loss there either so boo hoo to RLP.

 

 

I would say that it is possible that you may be 'invited' to the police station to give an account of yourself and explain why you made the choices you did. The police are humans (well, most of them) and will decide what to do. This could be an official warning or a fixed penalty notice or something else. We don't know.

 

 

Ignore RLP and any of their lackeys pretending to be debt collectors. Neither RLP nor a debt collector will turn up at your door. Let us know if the police do get in touch.

 

 

In the meantime, try and figure out the reasons you decided to steal. Not having money is not an excuse.

Thanks for this - I know I'll never be doing it again. There's no excuse for it.

 

I will ignore RLP going forward and will let you know if the police do contact me. I thought that it might have been an empty threat as they didn't show up at the time, but if I get invited down then I'll just be honest with them.

 

Thanks again

Gosh, if I had a pound for every time I have seen that letter, I would be still be poor but not as much:|

 

 

£300-500! What have they been taking to come to this figure. The case in 2012 said that security costs were a core part of the business costs to the company and these are covered by the shop adding a small amount extra to the cost of the clothing which is paid at the till.

 

 

For their to be an accurate claim, they would have to list the exact costs down to the last penny as a civil claim is purely to put the company back into the position had the attempted theft not taken place. Arriving at an arbitrary figure is ridiculous.

 

 

No idea why I am saying all this as you are going to ignore them anyway:madgrin:
