Welcome to the toilet wall.
I am having some trouble understanding why I would want to know this when I am shopping, do I care?
I persume it is a direct reference to the cost of the product.
I guess what they are trying to say, is "Don't trying slipping a pound of marg down your y-fronts 'cos if we catch you, we'll send the boys round to get our £1.50 back." :-DChris
I think you are both wrong.
Caught in the Act the beeb's exposé!
Thats terrible - as bad as unregulated clamping. If I see a sign like that in a shop I will walk out and never return.
Chris W Caught in the actSo now the Supermarkets have their own police force, I for one will insist the police are called in the event that a mistake is made and I fined myself in a similar position.Alternly refuse to give the Supermarket your name and address then they will have to call the police.
Civil debt recovery is a scheme used by supermarkets to recover the costs incurred by shoplifters now that the police are no longer interested and only issue fixed penalty notices to offenders. These costs not only include the price of the stolen goods, but the cost of employing staff to catch the thieves! The sign is supposed to deter theft, which it doesn't! The most stolen supermarket goods are fresh meat and razor blades - both easily sold on to make cash for the next 'fix'. PS I am an ex-supermarket security manager, not a shoplifter!
Hi MaffiIt's not a well worded statement. In fact, I can't believe it's not better!Apologies, but I couldn't resist it.RegardsMalcolm
Sorry to disappoint Allan, but the police will be called in every case identified by supermarket staff, and civil recovery of costs will always be used in addition to any action the police might take.
I'm not dissapointed its as it should be if you have nothing to hide you need not fear the police.
