    If itís that much Iíll just pay for my mail to be redirected and deal with the threats, itís scary stuff and the thought of debt collectors or anything is terrifying to me, it was a simple moment of madness which I totally and utterly regret just want to get it over with

          That is how they operate: scare tactics to prey on their victims, to pressurise people into paying.
          In the UK we have legal systems to enable recovery of rightly owed debts and charges.
          Because they failed to make recovery through the courts when they applied, they have resorted to their own brand of justice.
          They act as vigilantes, and I am pleased to hear you now intend to ignore them

            Does anyone know what the envelopes look like that come through the door? Whether they have the RLP logo on or if theyíre plain?

              So it looks like those letters are having the desired effect: you are running scared and were even thinking of paying

                Yes of course, like I said Iíve never been in trouble before and so one sign of trouble scares me, I still do not totally understand completely due to me understanding that I did attempt to shoplift and therefore I am in the wrong, and that the fine is a punishment, and I just donít want my parents finding out

                  The "fine" is not a fine.
                  It is an attempt to extort money from you.
                  Fines in the UK are only imposed by the courts
                  If punishment is necessary it is imposed by the courts, not a private company acting as judge, jury and executioner.
                  Stop beating yourself up over one very minor mistake.

                  Last time I saw one of those envelopes it had a small discrete RLP logo

                    So just so Iím clear, the RLP has no legal power over what Iíve done? And if I donít pay the fine they wonít get in contact with Superdrug and Superdrug wonít take me to court or anything? And also is there anyway they would find my telephone number? Sorry for so many questions Iím just trying to get my head around this

                      RLP can do nothing.
                      Superdrug will not take you to court, if only because it would cost them more than they could ever recover
                      ,,,. and why would they want your telephone number?

                      Stop overthinking the situation and scaring yourself silly.
                      NOTHING WILL HAPPEN

                        Sorry just a couple of other forums have mentioned theyíve found their phone numbers and chased the money over the phone, I think Iíll do as you say and ignore the letters, then redirect my mail while this plays out and Iím away at university, am I okay so post on this forum again when the letters start coming through? I just know Iíll get stressed again

                          Of course you're welcome to post up anytime.
                          IF they ever phone, just hang up and block their number

                            Sorry to bother again just reading and recognised that most say that the goods were in a resellable condition and therefore they canít claim, one of the items I attempted to take, the box was ripped and the barcode unscannable I think, does this change where I stand regarding the ďfineĒ?

                              It's still not a fine....if anything was going to be done it would have been when you got caught. It didn't so you won't hear anything else. As has been said, RLP can't take anything from you as they are not part of the legal system that can give out fines and punishments. I would suggest using this site only as the internet is full of people who know everything about nothing and if you keep searching you will find so many different wrong answers that it will make you worry more.

                              Listen to the advice that's in this thread, any questions you have will have the same advice, ignore them.......

                              Did you look up the Oxford Case and RLP.......
