Hi

there this post is like many others similar.

 

I got caught shoplifting a drink in Sainsburys recently.

The security said he had noticed me do this before but had given me a chance and this time i blew it.

 

They took me out back and asked for ID.

I didnt have any so gave them my name instead and they gave me the banning form and made me sign it. He took a photo of the sheet and let me on my way.

 

From reading other threads it seems there is a associated company that will send letters to try scam me.

 

I am living in a house at university at the moment but am worried about those letters being sent home for my parents too read.

 

However as they did not take my address would it be possible for these letters to still be sent?

could they find it just from my name? 

if they are sent how would i know which address they will be sent too, and if i can check can i change it to my university one.

 

Also anyone with experience of this happening, how long did it take for the letters to start coming through? 

 

I think im just being paranoid now but would like confirmation.

You need to take a deep breath, calm down and apply some logic to the situation.

 

As DX says, without taking your address there and then, there is no way for them to send you any communication. I'm sure your name is not unique in the country, so they can't very well start sending letters to every person with the same name hoping one of them is you!

 

When it comes to security, I doubt very much whether the security guard has seen you doing this before, even if you have stolen previously. What security guard knowingly allows people to steal from the shop they're employed to protect? Given the way he treated you, it sounds to me like this is your 'get off lightly' moment. Do it again and you likely won't be so lucky.

 

If you're doing this regularly, please go and see a GP. There's no shame in it. Anything that helps you to stop this sort of thing is a priority. If you end up with a conviction, you've no idea how that could affect your career and job prospects later. Sort it out.

Thanks a lot for the quick replies everyone. It has reassured me.

 

Of course i will not do this again. I only started doing it in the first place at university because im student and also a larger than average athlete who requires a lot more food than i can afford with my small loan and increasing food prices (The drink i stole was one of the special nutritionally complete meals)

 

I have learned this is not the way, i do feel very bad and im going to have to rethink how to get enough calories in with what i have.

 

This whole thing has terrified me about ruining my life with a stupid conviction.
