Caught shoplifting.


Recommended Posts

You need to stop shopliftimg though because a repeat of this with the same store could be more serious. If you thnk you might do this again, have a chat with your GP and get some help.

Well done for contacting your GP. It's helpful to talk things through and they won't judge you, any more than we do, they will have seen it all before and should know where to get help and suport.

 

I'm not sure about writing to the store, let's see what other people here think.

 

I don't think they will look for anything else on you. Are you able to shop somewhere else?

 

In terms of how you feel at the moment, I would try to let it go because if you shop elsewhere and pay for everything this will all go away. But remember how you feel now if you're ever tempted to try the same thing again, you can use this feeling to create something good from this.

We've never seen a case where the store contacted the police later. If they don't appear on the day, they won't later.

 

How about you stop beating yourself up and ring the helpline? :)  Of course you're deserving of their help, please do it.

We're trying to explain to you that if the police didn't turn up on the day, we've never seen them turn up afterwards. :)

 

I'm not sure we know how long letters take, but apart from telling you not to go into the shop for the length of time they choose, there isn't normally much more to it. They may pass your details to a company like RLP or maybe DWF who are a parallel legal system who have no powers over you. If you get one of their begging letters, you come straight back here and we'll talk you through why you don't need to reply.

 

Are you having any joy with the helpline?

Bear in mind that security guards are there to dissuade people from shoplifting so was doing is job in his way and I hope you can move on from that.

 

The helpline sounds like a really good find and if you can talk to them again, I'm sure it will help.
