    Default Shoplifting at TJ MAXX

    Help! My daughter (22 years of age) was caught shoplifting at TJMAXX yesterday by a loss prevention specialist for the first time. I am shocked - she has never done this before. I don't want this to harm her record at all - she was told that she could not shop in that store from now on - at that location.

    Does TJMAXX have a system that if she shops at another store, they will know that she has shoplifted? It's one of her favorite stores being that she is just out of college on a limited budget. I would hate to see that she couldn't shop at that chain any longer. She received a notice of demand for civil damages. Will this be on her record?

    I've been worried sick!

    Default Shoplifting

    It seems highly unlikely that any store has a system of identification so advanced that they could instantly identify from any location a person who has shoplifted at any particular store. It may well be, though, that they could determine her history from store records if she were caught shoplifting again, regardless of location.

    If TJ MAXX LP told her she is no longer welcome in any TJ Maxx store then she should not go to any in that state. I know thier LP work in many stores and will see her again. If they did not say anything about not returning to TJ Maxx she is safe to do so. The civil demand that was issused is a three part paper..1) she will be sent a bill in the mail from TJ Maxx to pay for the time and the merchandise. 2) her name could be given to choicepoint and if it is she will be sent a paper in the mail saying so. 3) she can never do a non-reciept return in any TJ Maxx. The computer system will know her name if she trys to return with out a reciept. Hope this helps

    If she violates this and is caught in a TJ Maxx she could be charged with trespassing. Far as her record goes if convicted she will now have a criminal record

    I work for TJ Maxx and thier loss prevention is a tight, close nit group that share information between stores. My district alone has 16 stores and 5 states. If it happens in Missouri, Oklahoma hears about it. We also track what are called OET which are Orginized External theft rings, which are mainly refund frauds and ticket switchers and we have quite a few thieves that travel to all the TJ maxx's and Marshalls.. Here's a little known fact. TJ Maxx owns Marshalls and the LP can work in eachother's stores... So to answer your question, your daughter has a huge black mark and it could hang over her head for quite a while.
