    • Do they have evidence of you living outside the UK ?   It might be worth just sending Wescot a letter stating that you are resident in X country and have not resided in the UK since xx/xx/xxxx.  If you have a copy of any document stating you are living at a foreign address, you could enclose a copy.   They cannot really do anything, but if these debt companies get a sneaky CCJ in your absence because they did not have any proof you were resident outside of the UK, then they might use the CCJ to ramp up pressure on you.  For example Commonwealth countries are covered by legislation allowing foreign Court judgements to be enforced in each others courts.

Politics has always been a dirty game, but the current situation is astounding   PM unlawfully prorogues parliament and gets away with it   Jenrick unlawfully steps in and gives his mate and Tory doner an unlawful go-ahead to save him 10's of millions - and is getting away with it   Cummings and Jenrick ignore lockdown rules and its not just accepted, they are praised for it (by Johnson and handcock)   Stats on the Coronavirus are known to be total crap breaching all required standards - and nothing done about it  
    • You think it's better not to do anything at all? Rather than point out they haven't provided any proof of liability?
    • I cant see supermarkets doing the 'app status required' off their own back, I think it would need to be mandated by the overlords. Temperature checks are more likely but there would need to be an alternate method for the person to get food to avoid very damaging press.   BUT, I can well see an app with status requirement being placed on transport hubs. 'If the plebs can't use public transport, let their chauffeur drive them ...     Interesting that Jenrick is avoiding bad press despite trouncing lockdown rules with 3 homes and abusing his position for the benefit of his rich ex media pals but then again - he is one of the prime faces of lies and seems very happy to be such along with handcock   https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/cabinet-minister-robert-jenrick-breaks-21844275   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLrMfhSCZio   https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/questions-over-robert-jenricks-approval-of-tory-donor-richard-desmonds-housing-plan-xvrhr0m3j   https://www.nottinghampost.com/news/local-news/nottinghamshire-mp-robert-jenrick-acted-4169285       but lets not forget, these are kippers and populists running the show, NOT Tories.   So if johnson and Cummings gets away with unlawful/bending the rules so far out of shape only Lewis Carroll could define - why shouldn't he

Shoplifted asda but paid for goods, over £200

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

please could I have some advice as I'm absolutely terrified.

 

I shopped at asda, competing 3x shops in one for my parents and neighbours and myself.

I paid for my shopping and went to walk out, without paying for the other shopping.

 

I was stopped and escorted to a back room.

I apologised and said I had forgotten, they obviously didn't believe me.

I asked if I could pay for the shopping and they agreed.

 

I had to give my name, address, vehicle reg and they took my photo.

I was banned from the store for 3 years.

I was escorted to pay for the shopping which was £350.

Security kept a copy of the receipt.

 

I am terrified they will go to the police.

I can't sleep and feel like I may do something stupid as I can't live with the level of fear that police may show up on my doorstep.

I'm beyond terrified 

 

I dont have any criminal record,

I've never even got a parking fine.

 

Any advice really appreciated.

 

Thank you.

Firstly, it makes it easier for people if you don't post your story in a solid block of text. It makes it much easier to follow if you present your story in a properly spaced and punctuated form.

Thanks.

In terms of your problem, – don't worry. It sounds as if it's all done and dusted and the police won't be involved. You paid for the goods – you've been banned – nothing else will happen. There is a slight possibility that they might forward your details to one of the loss prevention bounty hunting companies which will then contact you and say that you have to pay some extra money or else they will see you in the civil courts.

If you get a letter like that then let us know. But by and large, you should ignore it. I think you will find that this is the end of the matter.

The police haven't been involved here. You have no criminal record. I'm sure it has been a shock to you – and I'm afraid that this is something that you will have to get over. It will probably help you if you can talk to people who are close to you and who you trust.

I expect that in a few days time you will feel very much calmer.

Please don't hesitate to come back here if you need to discuss things or if you hear anything else.

Thank you very much and apologies for incorrect format, I'm in such a state of panic I didn't even re read it.

 

I appreciate your post, do you believe that they won't have called the police even though in their eyes I tried to steal £350 of groceries (no alcohol just cat litter, food and normal food)? I paid for it all before leaving. Could I call and ask them this to try to put my mind at rest? I have a diagnosed anxiety condition and PTSD so this is why I am so terrified.

 

Do you know how long this could be hanging over me? Is there a set time before I would have heard from the police I.e. 1 month etc, after which time I definitely won't have them at my door?

 

Thank you again for your comment.

I'm quite sure the police have been called or else you would have heard about it by now.

Now I don't think you should call them or have any further contact. Put it behind you – but try to make a mental note about paying for your goods properly in future.

As I have said, I think you need to talk to people about it and give yourself some time to calm down – which I'm sure will happen. If you feel very bad about it then go see your doctor.

Thank you. Yes, I've got an outreach appointment next Tues as my mental health is not good.

they don't involve the police at all in these cases.

stop worrying.

 

the only time is serial shoplifters.

 

forget about it

go get on with your life

and keep up the good liaison with outreach, they are are wonder bunch of people;)... 

 

now.. you might get scary letters from a bunch of fleecers called RLP or possibly DWF.

claiming some magical sums for 'civil recourse' 

 

be very aware and DO NOT fall for it...

they talk an absolute load of twaddle in their letters as they are ambulance chasers that sc@m people out of money 

 

if you get one 

comeback here ok?

 

we are well vested in dealing with them..

This event is now done and dusted so as you have already contact with mental health services talk the matter over with them.

It is common for people to do things that risk getting caught as they believe they need to be punished, not for the shoplifting per se but for being them and thus worthless etc.

 

try and get someone to talk through your self esteem problems, you dont need punishing for being ill

 

this from your last thread is worthy...
