Missused my partners STAFF Oyster Card - How will this effect her?


Recommended Posts

Thank you in advance for whoever reads and replies to this post,

 

I was caught using my partners Staff oyster card, I had been using it for several months.

 

I was sent the letter from TFL which I admitted to the offence, I have apologised and I am trying my best to settle this outside of court.

 

But my question is,

if I state my partner didn't know I used the card how will this effect MY possible charge?

Will this escalate it straight to Fraud or is it likely I will get that charge anyway?

What will be the difference in my charge if I state whether my partner did or didn't know I was using their staff pass?

 

Also what are the possible out comes for my partner,

what should my partner do now and how much would it help my partner if I said I used it without my partner knowing?

I would think that if you state your partner knew, TFL would consider her as defrauding the company thus gross misconduct and the sack.

 

Do everything you can short of lying to keep your partner out of this.

 

You'll have to take what they do to you on the chin I'm afraid.

We could do with some help from you.

Thank you for the responses,

 

I understand how stating my partner knew I was using the card will effect my partner.

But how will it effect me?

 

Will saying that my partner didn't know I took it, guarantee the Fraudulent charge, am I more likely to get this Fraud charge anyway?

you seem to be more concerned about saving your own skin at the expense of your partners employment and future, do not lie to TfL.

 

i will expect the initial letter simply said....

 

On (insert date) you were reported to transport for London (TFL) for an offence(s) on the TFL public transport network. The facts of this incident are being considered and I must advise legal proceedings may be taken against you in accordance with transport for london's prosecution policy.

 

if the above is correct 

 

what did you put in your begging letter please

My partner knew I was using their staff pass. It was a stupid but collective decision.

 

I just want a better understanding how severe the repercussions could be for the both of us individually.

We are aware my partner could lose their job, but could my partner get a Fraud charge?

I don't claim to be an expert but I think the only time I've seen fraud mentioned in connection with a transport offence is when the ticket has been forged.

 

Have you read other threads by people in a similar situation to yourself? That should let you know what to expect.
