Shoplifting in netherlands HELP PLEASE

Ongelezen bericht door Guestguestguest23 »

I need help please! I am an international student in netherlands

I am very ashamed but i got caught shoplifting at h&m. It was a 1.90 euro thing and security did not call the police. But he said i should pay 181 euro. Is there any possibility that later police would be involved and i will be more in trouble?

It is always possible that the shop can file a complaint at a later moment but that is not very likely.
The 181 euro is a civil kind of fine. If you don't pay they can take it to a civil court.
Stay safe out there.

Also will it be recorded to my BSN number? How can i check if it is recorded or not?
Also the letter they will send it to home (for 181 euros) is there anything on the envelop that shows the topic. I am dead if they find out at home. I do not know what to do. Is there any way possible that i can pick up the letter?

If no police have been present, the police will not make a record of it. So you will not get a criminal record or anything like that.

The SO-DA foundation offers you a settlement in the form of a "fine" that benefits the retailer. This is done on the basis of the Civil Code. If you do not pay, they will take you to court with a request to pay the compensation measure and the costs of the proceedings.

I have also this site for you (in Dutch).

or with Google Translate: https://www-so--da-nl.translate.goog/aa ... r_pto=wapp

There is also on their site a possibility to ask questions, to pay directly, to make an paymant proposal or something else
