Meijer - Falsely Accused of Shop Lifting. Accidently Forgot Ring Up Something in My Cart
Grocery Store - Complaint
DAYTON, OHIO -- I went through the self check out at Meijer. I scanned some chicken. Apparently it didn't scan. I scanned all my groceries in the cart. I had two toys in the bottom of my cart. I made a mistake and was distracted by my phone. I forgot to-ring the 2 toys up. I spent around 75.00 in the store.
I was stopped by the loss prevention person. I told her over and over again it was a oversight on my part. I never tried to conceal any thing. I offered to pay for the items. I told her it was a accident ect... I even stated when she accused me of not ringing up chicken that I remembered having trouble scanning. That it wouldn't scan.
I asked about hidden cameras ect... She threatened to call police or I could get a Lawyer. The fee was 65.00. I was mad, confused. The loss prevention person was rude. When I told her I made a mistake that wasn't paying attention that I could pay for it she said no and if that made me feel better about myself I could say that it was accident. I have shopped here for a number of years. Spent thousands of dollars I am sure. I was embarrasssed and felt like there was nothing I could do or say to prove myself. She even accused me of doing the same thing on previous shopping trips but had no proof of such and stated she could catch up to me. which is ridiculous since I am in that store at least 3 times a week.
I felt like she didn't have any real proof of anything. I was given a civil fine of 65.00.
