Shoplifting .

Salinas, CA |

If I don't pay the civil demand letter from Ronald Halpern Esq. will the take me to small claims court ? And if they do will I end up paying more than the $250 I owe them. I'm kind of scared because they called me and asked for the money I told them I couldn't pay it all if full and they said 30$ a month . But to be honest I find it ridiculous I already have paid all this money to the courts and the store had received the one small item back in perfect condition. So will this effect my credit, since I already made somewhat of an agreement with them?

  1. Never pay one of these civil demand letters. It won't affect whether you will be prosecuted or not.


  2. You posted this already, I think, but regardless, my advice, is to call their bluff and not pay it, I don't see them filing suit.
