I got a Civil Demand letter saying I have to pay $150 because I was with my friend because he shoplifted and I didn't even know. I didn't take anything, when we walked out, the beeper went off and I knew it wasn't me. Should I pay the $150? And what will happen if I don't? I am only 13 years old, they don't know any of my phone numbers, only Address, Height, Weight, Name. And what he stole costs $9 I Just want some advice whether or not I should pay it and will the price go up if I don't pay it within the time period. I don't want them to sue me and my parents don't know about this. I would also like to know if I could pull off the old "I never got the letter" trick. Also, they mailed it from Bentonville, AR 72716-0815 and I live in Houston, Texas.
