  • caught shoplifting from primark, need some advice

    iím 15 years old and me and my friend stupidly attempted to shoplift from primark about a month ago. please donít give me any grief in the replies, i know i was wrong to do it and i regret it, i have been punished by my parents as they didnít raise me this way, but i just need some advice. they told us that we were banned from primarks in our area but i was wondering how long that would be for? they didnít specify. i had been looking at some other posts on here about RLP? they didnít take my address or even my last name, they only took my first name and age and made me call my mum and that was the end of it.

    If they didn't take your address or last name they don't know who you are so you won't hear from RLP, they have no way of contacting you. Primark probably didn't question you further because you were under age and there was no 'responsible adult' present. They didn't photograph you for the same the reason.

    As they didn't give you any written notice of the ban there is no definite answer to that. I would advise you stay out of the Primark where it happened in for at least 6 months. Chances are you'll be long forgotten by then. If they don't have your photo they can't match you against the CCTV.
    All opinions expressed are based on my personal experience. I am not a lawyer and do not hold any legal qualifications.

      I agree with the above poster. You were very lucky. If they called the police it could have been very different. Just don't do it again its not worth it.I would stay well away from it for a while and they'll soon forget about it. I imagine Primark has lots of shop lifters on a regular basis they will be dealing with.
