I was caught shoplifting in Landmark worth 900+ of shoes!!! i was brought in the security office,made me fill up a form writing a statement that i was invited in their office and will pay the goods that i 'forgot' to pay. i was so scared and shaking while i was filling up the form while the investigator told me what was going to happen: sabi nya i will pay the amount of the shoes double and will not be able to get the shoes.i beg to pay the amount na lang and not double pero di daw po pwede, policy daw po un.
i have no receipt or acknowledgment that i paid tapos i was taken mug shot!!! hay.i asked na wag na since nagbayad naman na ko, nothing else was found in my possession, i have other purchases pa nga..pero di pumayag yung investigator.picture pa din Sad.
i've read the other forums here re shoplifting (similar case), buti pa nga sila 500 lang binayaran ako 1800! Sad siguro kasi nakita nila may pera ko sa bag kaya siguro ganon. kaya lang po ang concern ko at talagang di po ako makatulog kakaisip is kung ano mangyayari next? pinaalis na nila ko and said it was settled.i asked if they will post my pictures publicly or sa wall na yun nga dun sa office nila,sabi hindi daw. this is so humiliating as i have a daughter who goes to school.
- will it displayed po? wala po ba akong karapatan na hilingin sa kanila to keep on their file na lang and not post it where people can see?
- is it advisable to go back to their office and ask further questions?
- and to also check if nakapost ang mug shot/picture ko dun?
i regret what happened and i am most apologetic, this is the first and last offense... learned my lesson the ultra hard way. too bad for me.
ano pong gagawin ko? can't get this matter off my head. thanks in advance...

what will happen is that they'll catch new shoplifters and they'll forget about you. your settlement absolved you of any criminal liability. move on with your life.

Anna Marie:
You have settled your case so you do not have worry about being sued. Some learn the easy way - some learn the hard way. Bad experience but the redeeming value for you and Grateful is that you saw and learned the lesson (others won't regret but would instead look for ways not to be caught next time).

What could be missing only is for you to ask forgiveness from your creator so the bad experience would not be like a ghost that keeps on scaring you. seeya

Hi Atty. I have a similar case , i was caught also of getting a nail polish. di ko alam kung ano pumasok sa akin at naisip ko gawin yun..they brought me sa kanilang affice at nagfill up ng form and paid for the said nail polish..as you know,paranoid din ako at kailangan marinig din personaly from you kung ano mangyayari dahil kailangan kong kumuha ng NBI Clearance..so afraid po.magrereflect po ba yun?Sobrang piangsisisihan ko yung ginawa kong yun. Salamat po..

Atty i just want to seek your advise,
What happened was me and my wife was shopping at Sm department store
when we went to the cashier to pay for our items the lady forgot to swipe one of the item that we bought which ended up in our eco bag but was not paid because it was not swiped through the bar scanner
when we were heading out a civilian guard stopped us and went through our items and receipt and found that a baby bottle that we thought we paid for worth 1,200 was not there.
he took us to the customer relations office we went through the interogation process they asked me to admit that i stole that item which i did not do
they told me that if i dont confess to the crime that they will file a case of theft against me.
i really did not admit that because i really did not do it.
i ended up being locked up at CIDG for 3 days, they let me post bail because i did not agree on having it investigated anymore as if i do they will keep me locked up until the investigation is over,
i had no choice i have a newborn baby at home and a 3 year old son waiting.
so i paid 10,500 for my bail i got out the same day.
my question is what would happen next? i have a hearing this coming monday for this case and i want to know if i would go back to jail for this.

thank you,

GOOD DAY ATTORNEY!!!

I hope this thread is still active. Is there any rule or law in the Philippines that if a Store Security Officer caught a person shoplifting an item/s , that person is given a chance to go back to the counter to pay the items he/she allegedly stolen, and he/she will be only be brought to the investigation room, if she/he continues to deny the charge? please enlighten me, thank you and more power to you.

none.some establishments ask you to pay the item ten folds instead of filing a case or reporting the matter to the police

Thanks for the info my knowledgeable fellows! I had a similar case with the lady. I was caught and then was asked to pay tenfold back in 2011. They didn't take my picture but my personal details and school ID were inspected. The head security assured me that my record will still be clear after the incident. I don't have a "klepto" habit, but I sometimes like to live dangerously (but I now regret not using my brain). It was a life changing event for me, I became more honest after that. I pray for everyone who are with this said offense in the past to have a peace of mind and the courage to continue living.

hi. I was caught yesterday when I stole something it was quite a small item but the case was I still stole it because of lack of cash on hand. I was brought to an office, was interrogated, all my things were all over the table, etc. They made me fill up a form containing all my personal information and made me wrote what happened and why i did it and they took a picture of me. they did not made me pay for the item or anything they just warned me that if ever I do it again they will send me to jail. Now my concern is the picture.. I'm really scared.. will it be posted in public? or will I have a hard time or complication in getting my NBI? please answer.. I'm still nervous whether my picture will be seen by my friends and relatives.. I know it's my fault but i really needed that item at that moment.

Hi. Good pm po. Sa isang supermarket po, ang ginawa ko po ay dinoble ko yun nipple nun milk bottle n binili ko. Then nun naipunched nun cashier nahalata nya bat doble. Ipinaabot nya ito sa supervisor nila. Kinausap ako nun supervisor in public. Isinigaw sigaw na magnanakaw ako. Then pinagbayad ako ng 10x the price of the nipple of milk bottle. At kinuha ang name at address ko. What happens next atty.? Kasi kinakabahan at natatakot pa din ako dhil baka bigla nila ako punatahan sa bahay at ipadampot sa pulis. Hindi pa nga din nawala sa isip ko ang nangyari. Dahil napahiya ako in public. To think na pwede naman nya ako kausapin in her office.

Tama ba ito? Humuhingi kayo ng advise pra malusutan nyo ang ginawa nyong pagnanakaw? Dpat videohan at picturan kayo at ipost sa lahat ng establishment na magnanakaw kayo. Dapat din na makulong kayo pra magtanda kayo.
