i was stopped by a ticket inspector on the underground and was asked to show the card i was using i was panicking and dident know what to do but ended up showing my younger brothers oyster which is 11-15 zip card he took my adress dob name and said a letter will be sent to my house.


what will happen and i asked will i be prosecuted or need to go into court he said no and i will receive a letter amd i should reply saying sorry and why i did it and i should say i am guilty because i am in the wrong. i am really worried and stressed out because i do not have money at the moment. when the letter comes what shall i do?


please help me. will i be prosecuted? what should i say on the letter?

Hello and welcome to CAG.


We can't really advise you on what to say in the letter until you hear from TfL, I'm afraid. You can have a read around our forum for similar cases to see what might happen - use the Search box in the maroon strip at the top of the page.


I have a couple of questions please. How old are you and how many times did you use the card?


Best, HB
