    Default Shoplifting at Whole Foods

    My question involves criminal law for the state of: OR

    I was recently caught shoplifting at Whole Foods. I was guilty, am regretful and mailed the check for the Civil Demand Letter I received (issued according to ORS 30.870 and 30.875) that very night. They told me to comply within 2 weeks so as to avoid the need to "file a civil action in the appropriate court of law".

    It has been 12 days since I mailed the check. They have not cashed it and the letter only has a phone number on it that takes you directly to a message machine. I have left two messages looking to confirm their having received it and they haven't responded to either.

    Should I mail another check to ensure everything goes smoothly? I hesitate because I am obviously broke and am afraid it might mindlessly be cashed twice. What would a civil action entail if something has gone wrong with my payment? I just want this all to be over.


    oh and the amount I shoplifted was $12.45 if that matters.

    How about sending a follow-up letter indicating what you just told us and asking for further guidance if they have not yet received the check.

    What he said. Sent the letter certified, return receipt requested, so someone has to sign for it and you will have proof of the letter being received by someone at that address.
