    • Thanks DX.  I've ploughed through the pages and dug out what I feel are the relevant ones. Obviously, some of these are duplicates of what I've put up before.  Anyway, I would be hugely grateful if someone can look over and advise. Reading though other posts and on other cases that I've had help with from here, I don't think they have much of a case - given the weakness of much of their "evidence" - but obviously I would be grateful for some expert advice from the helpful souls on here.    Thank you.    B   Witness Oct19_redacted.pdf
    • You came here for advice, soem advice has been given adn you question the validity and source of that advice. We are all lay peopele, ie not giving professional advice but it is based on experience of the world and in some cases working in the field that advice is given on. Now you dont have to take our advice, we wont get the huff if you prefer to look elsewhere or do something else. when I asked what you think they would do with your NI number it is to prod you to think for yourself and question why they would ask for this when there is nothing legal they can do with the information so wouild you be wnating to give it to them knowing that they would want it to break the law if they processed it. Now you can take that up with the company at the top but TBH unless you want to spend money on a lawyer they will not answer the question or fob you off with some ridiculous answer anyway.   so for the moment read a lot about  RLP and similar situations to yours ans make particular note of what happened to the peopel in the end. You will find no threads theat ended by saying " thanks to you I gor sued by RLP and owe them a fortune". It isnt going to happen and the reasons why are explained in many threads. They rely on your feeling of guilt to get anywhere
    • you need to respond to their letter saying that you belive that you ahve been paid correctly ( or underpaid if you are due a small amount of accrued holiday pay etc) and demand that they show a full account of what you received, when and why and how they arrived at this figure. You then reconcile that with your P45 and use the figures to bat off any furhter demands if they still akke one. Come back if they dotn drop the matter and give us the full breakdown on hours worked, hourly rate, gross pay, tax paid  etc
    • @dx100ukI never got a response to my SAR from Octopus.   But I have just received a 'letter before court action' from one of their legal representatives, who have been "instructed to consider legal action against [me] if full payment, a settlement or your proposals to make suitable repayments arrangements are not received in the next 30 days."   I'm reading the threads now. Any advice on how to proceed? 
    • I would say let them do their worst, it will surely backfire on them. Now with restrictive contracts that stop you working fro competitors- these are notoriously vague so often not worth the paper they are written on. also they have to be fair so for example if there are only 2 companies in the UK that make a certain product your employer cant say you arent allowed to work for the other one. If you were for example trained as a hairdersser and you were going to open a salon in the next street to your ex employer then the restriction would apply if worded correctly. Dont panic about this, your new employer will be au fait with the situation and time spent worrying about a nastly letter will in their eyes take you eye off the ball so concentrate on the new job.

Hello,

today i got caught stealing a trouser from primark.

 

The security man took me to the room in the back and took my ID and wrote down my details.

 

I gave him my address but a wrong apartment number.

The security man said that I will get a fine(didn’t mention from who I will get it) and I have to pay it otherwise the police will come and take me to the police station and I’ve to give an interview.

 

is that true ?

What will happen?

Should I tell the apartment to give me that letter if they get it?

I suggest you use the red top toolbar and its search CAG box.

primark

 

should do.

 

security should not be threatening you with a fine

are you sure they used that word?

 

only the police and courts can fine you, and as the police were not involve

all you'll get is scary letters from the likes of RLP which can be totally ignored.

 

just don't go in that store for awhile.

 

have a read up

you'll soon get the idea

 

if this is a reoccurring habit, it wouldn't hurt to have a chat with your GP.

 

thread title updated for better clarity of your issue

Hi,

 

Thank u really much for the reply. Yes the security said that a company will send me a fine and if I don’t pay it they will get in contact with the police and send the police... I have given the wrong apartment number, so will they find my apartment somehow?

Nothing will happen. The guard is lying. There is no fine, and no police will come if you dont pay them. Move on with your life and dont steal again.


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..

 

 

If my advice helps you, click the star icon at the bottom of my post and feel free to say thanks

rlp cannot 'sent the police'

 

again this is primark

and shows the need for retraining of their security staff

be them franchised or in house

 

nothing like that can never happen.

p'haps they get a backhander from RLP if they say that

cause if you did pay them it would be free money that most certainly no retailer that employs them ever sees a penny get back to them.

Hi and welcome to CAG

 

It really annoys me when security use threats such as these to scare people. While it is obviously wrong to steal, this should not be compounded by incorrect information.

 

You will get a few letters from RLP but as you didn't give the correct apartment number, someone else will get them and maybe pass them on to you.

 

These letters will make claims that they 'may' do this or 'might' do that. None of which are true. Only Primark can take action but they don't bother as it is not cost effective to do so

 

If you do get the letters passed on to you, let us see a redacted version of the letter to confirm that it is one we have seen before but most importantly, IGNORE RLP!


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
