I was detained at Kohls 6 months ago because I didnt realize I had left the store still carrying a small item. I have no record, never been accused of shopplifting, it was an honest mistake. No police were called, no criminal charges, and then I get a letter to pay $250 in 3 weeks. Firstly, there is no way at this time I can have this unexpected bill paid in that amount of time. What should I do? Ignore it, wait for a second notice, contact them and ask for an extension?
