I got banned from Sainsburys / shoplifting

Recommended Posts

Good evening! 

 

I am worried becuase today I was caught trying to take some products without paying (no more than 40GBP).

The security took me to a room where I was asked for my DOB, address and a picture (one of the security took a pic).

They did not call the police but they gave me a document where it states I got banned from Sainsburys.

 

I have to be honest since I did the same a couple times for the last month and becuase it did work, I tried again today but they saw me. 

 

I am worried now becuase I dont know if they will check the CCTV and they will see me taking some products and the consecuences if this happen.

 

Obviusly, it will be the last time I do something like that since I dont have any problem with money or addiction and I have the need to steal products.

 

I sent a letter to "total loss and security team" apologising and regreting about what I did today, telling that I will never do it again and asking if there is any chance to be unbanned from sainsbury. 

 

Can any tell me if they will check the CCTC and can find me for "Facial recognation", if the police can come to my place if they found i did in the past, what can i do now... etc... 

 

I am very worried about this situation.

 

Thanks a lot in advance for your advice.

they don't use FR 

so just stay away from that store 

and they won't waste £100's on manhours searching CCTV either.

 

forget about it , go enjoy your life but get GP help if needed..

 

ignore any stupid letters from RLP/DWF about civil recovery crap.

Thank you!!

 

so for sure they will not check the CCTV?

not facial recognation?

i am so worried to be honest.

I will be my last time for sure doing something like that.

 

By the way, what is FR?

becuase I guess GP is the doctor, right?

sorry about my silly questions.

FR is facial recog

100% sure they'll not waste money on CCTV search, not worth the effort in recovery costs.

yes GP is your doctor

thank you.!!

 

I dont need help from a GP. What I did it is cos I am an idiot.

 

To be honest I am worried not because today I was caught, becuase I left the products there and they did not call the police, but worried becuase I did in the past (2 times in the last month).

 

so, if you are sure they won´t check anything... it will be great becuase I was reading in the internet and some information I found was not good, some of them from Lawyer webs.

Some examples were:

the police can come to my place if they find out I did in the past and i was not caught or I can go to court... 

 

By the way, do you know if I can be unbanned or I will be banned from sainsburys for the rest of my life?.

 

Thank you for your help.

Thx u!

Yes I was already reading about it and all them same advice:

don’t pay anything,

try to avoid the store for a while,

no panic as nothing will happen..

 

but I just was worried cos I didn’t see anything about people who took things without paying a few times until they were caught and what could happen...

but since you said that they won’t check the  CCTV etc, I feel better, a bit scared cos it was today but I will be great in a few weeks haha :)

I forgot to ask if they can check by my nectar card when I was using it, cos then, they could check the CCTV without wasting time searching since they could go directly to the day and time I paid

Hi. In our experience, you won't hear anything else, there are plenty of other threads here that have just petered out with no further action.

 

Just make sure you don't try this again because if you become known it won't go well. If you think there's an underlying mental issue that made you do this, have a chat with your GP about what's going on.

Thank for your nice advice and help! To be honest I did it few times in the same place in a short period cos it worked until the security saw me but I won’t do it again for sure! I learned the lesson this time.

 

I was reading about others and I can imagine everything was fine but I my worries was cos I didn’t read a similar case, all them were cases where people was caught the first time they did but my case is different cos I did a few times in same place until I was caught.

 

I just was very worried cos maybe they could check the CCTV every time I went there in the last couple of months doing the same cos I used my nectar card/cc and they have my details as they asked  for them also. (So i guess must be easy track me with those info in their system) 

 

But both of you told me it will be fine, so I feel better, still a bit worried cos it was recently but I will be ok. 
 

thank u very much again !

I have been banned from a supermarket for shoplifting and I would like to know if there is the option to be unbanned and if there are people who were, what they did.

I've merged the thread with the earlier one which you posted. Please don't start new threads on the same topic. It is not helpful to anyone including to you.

From what you have posted your multiple episodes of shop theft weren’t due to a medical problem, nor necessity from hardship.

 

Why would they wish to unban your?

why would you want to risk the embarrassment of going back if you’d shoplifted and been caught?

 

Just shop elsewhere.

Going forward If shopping somewhere else (legally) is of sufficient importance to you : best not shoplift there ........

Thank you very much for your words and advice!

 

i did it 3 times and I was caught, so enough. I have learned the lesson and it will not happen again.

 

i just asked if it is possible to be unban (I don’t mind to pay a fine If necessary and show my regret to the employees etc. I did something very bad and I am not happy about it) but obviously if they don’t, I will find another place where to buy and for sure not more shoplifting.

I wouldn’t advise offering to pay anything, nor paying anything

Just don’t go back and move on with your life (just use other shops)

If you dont heed the advice about not going back there for a good while the consequences could become more serious. For the moment you were caught doing somehting and the store took a course of action that would come under "restorative justice" so they cnat make a complaint to the police about this.

Sainsburys dont want you in their store becasue they dont know you, not because you were caught out, it is about future risk and asking to be unbanned will ring alarm bells and certainly end up with a no and possibly an alert to the local managers ( they have your picture dont forget).

Best keep below the radar until they forget about you.

If a company like RLP get in touch just ignore them, the matter has been dealt with and they have no interest in anything anyway
