Did the place you went to not have security cameras? Most retail stores do. If so, why didn't they just review the tapes? I remember when a store thought I stole a purse from them, I simply told them I paid for it, gave them all of my information and walked out. I'm not going to sit around and be accused of something I didn't do. They are rent-a-cops not actual police officers. They can't legally detain you, unless they have a valid reason. Since they didn't see you shoplift or had someone else

I always worry this will happen to me, because it's not like you carry every receipt you ever get on your person. But good job on keeping your clothes looking brand new I guess. :)

Well it is sort of their job, but they have to learn how to do it more afficiently.

I always think this is gonna happen to me because I basically shop at just 1 store... I actually just bought a pair of shorts that were the same ones I was currently wearing yesterday. I'm always wearing clothes into that store that they're still currently selling :P

lmfao it's been a while since I see or say the word faack lol thanks for the laugh. other than you were late for work, that's basically it, i don't get the fml...

8- because that would have been too smart an idea. OP, had you left the store yet? Did they check the change rooms? They had no proof... video cameras should have been checked, as 8 said, and they're morons. Don't shop there again.

I always have that in the back of my Ming when I bring my things into a store that sells the same thing. I never thought it would actually happen though.

hahahaha freshpie you've done it again!! love it!! also 58, when commenting on how stupid other people are, you should take greater care to ensure that you use proper grammar. It's "too stupid" you troglodyte.

Fuhohohoho... This is why I don't like to go shopping while wearing something I'd bought at that store... Oh-so awkward.

Actually the only way they can detain you is if they see you shoplift, otherwise they can't really do anything. Oh an if you leave the store they're not legally allowed to chase you since you're bot on the property anymore.

Huh? that doesn't make any sence. you can always walk in with a tshirt on and switch them in the fittingroom.

And there would be the evidence still sitting in either the fitting room or OP's purse, assuming she has one.

I know we Americans love to say "Sue!" for everything, but you can actually sue the clothing store for that.

Reply

OP, you're actually pretty lucky. You CAN sue for that, and Wal-Mart, for example, likes to settle out of course for something like 8 grand. Easy money!

You were treated very badly. I don't honestly think that this would be a good use of the legal system, but I think you should write a letter to the owner of the store or, if it's a chain, that person explaining why you will not be shopping there again.
