Were You Caught Shoplifting and Now the Store Is Trying to Sue You for $400?

In most shoplifting cases at large retail stores (i.e. Macy’s, Walmart, JCPenney, Kohl’s, Home Depot, Albertson’s, Home Goods, Sears, Nordstroms, etc.), loss prevention will conduct an investigation of the suspect and then send the suspect a letter threatening a lawsuit unless payment is made for up to $500.  Does this mean that if one pays this demand, the criminal case will be dismissed?  Is the demand even related to the criminal case, or is it related to a separate civil case?  What should one do in response?  Click on the following link to find answers to these common questions.
