Hi, I'm writing this on behalf of my daughters situation. She ever so stupidly showed her morning ticket that she had bought when she was coming home at the barriers at Bradford train station. She proceeded to show the same ticket to the conductor on the train. She thought she had got away with it until a few men at the exit of the Rochdale station were checking tickets. The man asked her for her ticket she once again ever so stupidly decided to lie and say that she had left it on the train. The man took down all her details and she had told him that she bought the ticket from the station. He told her that she should be expecting a letter soon and she should sign it. Now I am confused on what should she do. Should she write to northern rail and explain the truth and ask them for forgiveness and a out of court settlement fee of £80 and the train travel charges. Or should she wait for the letter to arrive and hope for the best. I'm worried that they realise she is lying and the matter becomes even more greater than it already is as they can decide to check CCTV cameras to see if she had bought the ticket or not. She's only in her first year of university so I am hoping it doesn't result in a criminal offence as it would affect her future job prospectus. In no way shape or form am I saying what she did was correct, she has realised what she has done and is extremely sorry for her actions. Any advice or suggestions on wether she should write an apology letter to them before her letter arrives or not would be extremely helpful! Thank you so much!
