I admitted to stealing $79.80 worth at the store that I worked for a month ago, I was fired. And I just recieved a letter today (dec 20)stating I have to pay a balance of $429.80 plus a civil penalty of $350. I dont have any money to go to a lawyer but it also states I can make payments every month. I dont see where it says after I pay the full amount they will leave me alone. What can I do? Or what should I do? Letter is from Neal C. Tenen in Sherman Oaks CA.
