Hi, this is my first post and I would like some advice from those in the know. Firstly, I realise that what I did was completely wrong and immoral but would like some guidance on how to rectify the situation. I was stopped at Manchester Piccadilly last week with an out of date ticket by a Northern Rail RPI. Upon asking for my details I panicked and gave incorrect details. I stated a very old friends name and DOB but a wrong address. Obviously I didn't know the postcode and upon the RPI verifying this, he asked me again for my correct details. I work for a law firm and was scared about the prospect of a criminal record and the effects this could have on my job, so I changed the address to my old address but again the postcode wasn't correct as I had genuinely forgotten that one of the numbers was wrong. However, the RPI checked this down the phone along with the false name I had given and said that I was free to go and that a letter would be sent to the address. I must add that the old ticket I had was confiscated and I am not sure whether that can be used to track me through the numbers printed on it. I realise that it probably would be hard to track me down, but I don't want any one else to be implicated in this - i.e. the new homeowner at my old address or the friends name i gave in. What I would like to know is who would I contact in order to come clean? Moreover, I realise now from reading these forums, that giving false details is a criminal offence; thus if I get in contact with the TOC and state that I gave false details, will it automatically be dealt with in court or could an out of court settlement be negotiated. I realise that upon declaring false details it probably wouldn't be in their interest to negotiate but would just like some thoughts?
