Thank you to everyone that replied! I’m in a similar situation. Just received my first letter from dwf asking for £125. The value of items I was caught shop lifting came to about £10. Was really afraid until I read everything here, and will ignore the letters!

they are not out of pocket,

 

put the letter to good use in an emergency then flush away! ignore ,. these companies usually get their up and commence in time, lock the Bxxxxtds up, they are chancxers and should be locked up/false representation comes to mind/

Hi the worse thing is the worry, please ignore as it seems that you now only get the three letters in the space of a few months

Thank you!

it really is stressful, but reading through everyone’s responses and experiences helps ease the stress!

 

If the fine wasn’t so outrageous,

I was going to pay it,

because I know I was in the wrong,

 

but seriously,

£125 for security is just ridiculous!

 

Ok the bright side

even if my credit rating goes down for 6 years,

doesn’t matter,

by the time I graduate and earn enough for a deposit on a house,

decades will have gone by!

Why would your credit rating go down.......the numpties have no access to your credit rating.


We could do with some help from you.

Hi and welcome to CAG. I have taken the liberty of moving your posts (and replies) to a thread of its own. That we, we can give specific help and not confuse the other thread.

 

 

Well done for reading other threads and now knowing what will happen... Nothing, Nada, Zilch. All DWF can do is send letters, nothing more. They may be a solicitor group but in civil recovery cases of this sort, they are being very speculative about the money they claim Tesco are due.

 

 

They will not even be able to see your credit file unless you have given permission and even if you did, they could do very little to it. If by chance they do manage to do so, let us know but it's unlikely.

 

 

Were you given any paperwork by Tesco Security? Did you sign anything and if so, did you read it first?

 

 

Obviously look at why you did this and don't do it 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

Look,

the money doesnt go to pay for security and companies like RLP and DWF charge the store for their services so they get paid twice.

 

how do you think they arrive at the figure of £125?

They made it up!

they wouldnt exist if people didnt feed them and then the stores would have to think about proper methods of crime reduction as the current model doesnt work.

 

When figures show that the guff put out about how these companies reduce pilfering etc is false they then changed their story so it is for recovering security costs.

 

When that was shown to be unture it is now to deter people from doing it twice because it is getting expensive..

 

Well, the druggies that get caught 6 times in a day dont seem to consider that point to be relevant or true, they are desperate and that means their behaviour isnt going to change because someone sent them a letter.

 

So, having your collar felt is probably the impetus you needed to change your ways and not the threat of a letter so in your case the work is done without the input of DWF or whoever so again they are pointless
