Sainsbury’s banned


Recommended Posts

I have read all other threads.

 

Was caught stealing something of £1 value.

The security guard, who wasn’t usual sainsbury’s security, stopped me and said I was a repeat offender, although I’ve never been stopped before.

 

Nothing I have taken has costed much.

 

I was asked to sign, and gave my dob, address and name. Can anybody help me with information and advice for the next steps, I am fraught and feel terrible

 

FYI, I was given a banning letter and the police were not called.

I returned the item, and took what I paid for, however I’m worried they may enforce charges for the items from previous occasions and this may make DWF experience more difficult

I have never been caught before. I have taken the odd thing, but nothing worth much at all

Well the first thing is that you need to stop doing this or it will end badly, regardless of the value of the items taken.

 

Are there reasons for you stealing? If you have mental health issues, the best thing is to speak to your GP and get some help.

 

In future you may hear from  DWF if that's who Sainsbury's are currently using and we can advise you once the correspondence starts to arrive.

Don’t worry, I will never, ever do this again. I have learnt my lesson tenfold, I thought it was harmless and nothing would come of it. I was wrong. What do you think will happen? 

 

Will police be involved?

Socky,

 

The Police will not be called but as you gave them your address then you can expect a letter to come through the post with a stupid amount citing the shops security costs, these you can safely ignore.

The letters look personal because the templates have pre-formatted spaces for your name to be inserted.

 

Have a read around the forums on this and you will see others who have been in the same position as yourself and the advise is consistent to ignore any letters.

If you get any letters through and are concerned, please update this thread by scanning in, remove all personal identifiers and upload for others to comment on.

 

Speak to your GP as HoneyBee13 advised and put this behind you.

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Thanks for your help. Do you have any idea when these letters tend to appear? I live with other people and don’t intend for anyone to know

if they ever do.

 

they will be addressed to you so no-one else will know.

 

there are examples in threads here already, so you know to laugh at them whrn you read them, they will be exactly the same temple letter .

Thanks @dx100uk

 

The letters will be personally addressed to you so you need not worry about that.

Do they often not even send correspondence? I really appreciate your guys’ help

 

Unfortunately someone I live with has the same initials and surname, leaving me somewhat worried. However, I gave them my first name so I pray they use that

they sometimes don't bother, and i would hazard a guess for £1 item they'll not bother.

though ofcourse xmas is coming up so they might want to see if you want to be a mug and give them free money to pay for the staff's xmas party drinks bill. as ofcourse you already know, nothing ever goes back to sainsburys anyway.. goes in DWF's pocket and they run down the pub, just like any DCA

Effectively all the manager can do is simply tell you to leave his store

Hi,

just to confirm, is it likely that the DWF letter will include the accumulated price of things I may have taken before (which wouldn’t add up to more than £10 I presume). If it does, would I have to pay that? Or is it same approach, ignore all.

thanks

They usually ask for a fixed fee regardless, which we suggest you don't pay because DWF aren't the police.

 

Do you think they would know the cumulative price of what you stole? Is there more to this than you've told us?

No, it’s just I’ve been in there before and taken things, I was only caught once, the other day, and when caught I gave back the items I took

As CCTV is in use, perhaps they could add up these small items cost. 

 

Nothing more to it than that

Cctv typically gets written over evey 3 mts and even if not. No-one would waste staff time and wages scrolling through 100hrs to find you for a few £1 items.

 

Forget about it all dont steAl!!
