Woman locked in petrol station after RBS bank system failure leaves her unable to pay

The Bolton News: ANGRY: Laura Grogan ANGRY: Laura Grogan

A WOMAN was locked in a petrol station because she was unable to pay for her fuel — because of the RBS and Natwest system failure.

Laura Grogan, aged 29, and her partner Gordon Thomas, aged 28, were furious when at the Firwood Service Station in Crompton Way refused to let her leave.

Ms Grogan’s RBS debit card failed when she tried to pay for her fuel last Monday — and despite efforts to explain to staff, she was held against her will while the station waited for a device to empty the fuel out of her car.

Mr Thomas said staff used abusive language and made threats to his partner, which has left her badly shaken.

A passer-by called the police who attended and told garage staff they could not lock people in their property.

Mr Thomas returned to the garage later that night to pay for his partner’s petrol in cash.

He said: “It is disgraceful and totally unacceptable.

“My partner knew money was in the account and it could have been a problem with his machines for all he knew when he locked her in.Why you can’t leave your personal details, registration plate and then leave is beyond me.”

The incident happened at about 8.30pm on December 2.

Mr Thomas said staff even wanted Ms Grogan to leave her new iPhone 5 with them as a deposit for the £25 of fuel.

And he claims even when staff discovered the reason the card was not working they would not back down.

Mr Thomas said: “She came home in tears as she understandably felt intimidated at being locked in somewhere by a bunch of men.”

“At the end of the day, she was on her own and we have two kids, who could well have been in the car with her.”

Texaco supplies the fuel at the petrol station but the garage is independently owned.

Mr Thomas said: “We tried to get Texaco involved but they said it’s not our business and we will urge the station to investigate the incident.”

Nobody from the garage could be reached for a comment.

The system failure came on the so-called Cyber Monday, one of the busiest online shopping days, and has been attributed to a lack of investment in IT by the boss of RBS, Ross McEwan.

Under the law, people can be detained if they are suspected of committing a theft and while the police are called.

absolutely disgraceful behaviour - and to detain illegally, who do they think they are? It is not as if the lady tried to leave without paying and she did everything she could to sort it out. I had forgotten my card once when I filled up at Tesco, Horwich. They took my name and address from my driving licence, my car registration number and let me to with the promise to return asap to pay, which I did. Needless to say they still have a regular customer.

The RBS computer failure is almost incidental here - this is false imprisonment with threats, and should be further investigated by the police (who were called by a concerned passer-by, not by the perpetrators).

That attitude is utterly disgraceful.this garage shud be reported to the trading standards. Everyone to boycott this garage. They cannot get away with this sort of bulliest behaviour. I once filled up at shell (st peters way).i went in to pay but realised i left money/cards at home. The attendant was very understanding and told me to fetch it later on.no name address etc was taken. Probably took my reg number but thats to cover his back.

I think in this day and age petrol should be paid for before it is despensed. I don't blame the cashier locking them in the locality of the petrol station is not in the good part of the town, they probably get this sort of thing on a regular basis.

I have been a employee and a Manager in several petrol stations and find this situation totally disgusting. There are systems set in place, namely NMOP (or no method of payment) for just such a situation. This is a form whereby the customer can fill in the form and show some form of ID and the petrol staion then gives them a set time in which to return and make payment. If they do not, the company will then persue them through the courts." It wouldnt be worth their while to take them to court" you may say, but the Head Office of that company will make application to the courts and have several cases dealt with at once, so it is worth their while. I have had customers OFFER to leave their CHILDREN while they go back home and get their money, ( Obviously this offer was declined ) but to imprison someone and also bully them is beyond comprehension. If this were my staff that did this they would now find themselves signing on. This particular petrol station is what is called a COMOP, in other words a commission operated station in which Texaco would supply the petrol but the Comop would rent the premises and run the business as their own. I feel this lady is well within her rights to persue a legal case here and I think the people responsible should be brought to task !

I am on the side of the garage owner. Day in day out the garage will have faced customers like her; allegedly having money but not at that point. Why couldn't she have left something as deposit, or even nipped out whilst her partner waited? I can guarantee you that once out of that petrol station she would have taken her time to pay, if she could be bothered that is.
Another thing, we are taking her word on the events. The garage owners have taken the right attitude and not commented: it's not worth their while. This incident will soon be forgotten and life will be back to normal.

It baffles me why anyone would ever use this petrol station anyway. The Shell garage where Crompton Way meets Tongue Moor Road, a stone's throw from this Texaco garage, is always cheaper.
OK, not by a huge amount but still...

Are you thick?? The lady in question was unable to pay for the goods\services as the RBS and NATWEST were having technical problems not because she had no money. Even if the lady was unable to pay for any other reason i think locking her in is unacceptable. I would bet if it was a burly gentleman who was unable to pay they would have acted differently, i for one wouldn't have been amused at being locked in. Is this again the case of lack of respect for the opposite sex which is all to common among many faiths and races, this in the 21st century and should not be tolerated. A boycott of this garage should be enforced now

I was behind a lady who's debit card wouldn't work at the Shell garage on Crompton Way a few weeks ago. He didn't lock her in but refused her name and address, even though she had ID on her. I paid the £10 for her so that she could get to work on time and, later that day, she came to our office with the money and a box of chocolates for me. Sometimes it can be the machines at fault. My debit card is always declined at the Co op late shop in Breightmet but never declined anywhere else. The staff can't explain why.

Most petrol stations have a prepay policy at night times, and in the dark ages cashiers wages were deducted for non payments, drive offs etc, I was in the petrol game for 8 years and people DO chance their hand at getting away without payment although this was a very small minority. The question is, The lady would have dispensed her petrol and then gone in to pay. She wouldnt have KNOWN there was a problem until her card was declined !!!!!!
At the end of the day detaining someone against their will is a criminal offence. Chrome1 and Saj are obviously employees of a petrol station and therefore understand the challenges and abuse that staff in these premises tolerate on a daily basis. When you next go to any petrol station make a note. On every pump you will see a notice "Please make sure you have the ability to pay before dispensing fuel " How many people do?
I sympathise with this lady as what she endured was a bit OTT but when you stand behind a counter in a petrol station and hear the amount of " I'll pop back laters" then naturally staff have a suspicious nature x

The lady probably thought she had the means to pay. She wouldn't have known about the banks problems. I would have thought that most people would just drive off if they didn't want to pay for petrol, not go into the shop armed with their debit card. To be honest, I don't really trust garages with my debit card so I tend to draw the money out first

How does the petrol station system know if Nat West and RBS had a of problem did the banks contact all the businesses. 80% of the time customers don't come back even when the leave valuables behind. The cashier was right £25 would come out of his pocket few of them a week and you'd be working for nothing.
Obviously some think what they did was exceptable behaviour, so next time this happens maybe they would understand if the person who is treated like this also takes the law into there own hands and returns later with the payment and a baseball bat! Where would it end??

Hey Cole you are indeed very perceptive. I admire you for that and also for providing a very balanced view. I actually don't work at a petrol station but know someone who owns one and the horror stories I hear makes me grateful that I don't work there.

The lady should've microwaved an apple pie or a pasty until the contents were hotter than the sun.

She could've then threatened to squeeze it in the direction of her captives.

It could have had near fatal consequences for the lady if it backfired, but those are the tough choices/gambles you need to make in these situations.

People who work in retail get people trying to con them on a daily basis. They get given fake names and address, vehicles registered to people living abroad, forged money shoplifters vandals as well as abusive customers.

If the persons involved became abusive why didn't she not record them, everyone carries mobile phones these days.

I advise if anyone ever detains you all you have to do is set off the nearest fire alarm. She was quick enough to go running to the papers wasn't she.

It's not illegal to detain someone against their wishes. The police do it all the time. Plus if you're caught shoplifting you can also be detained. It depends on the circumstances don't you think?

Are you thick?? The lady in question was unable to pay for the goods\services as the RBS and NATWEST were having technical problems not because she had no money. Even if the lady was unable to pay for any other reason i think locking her in is unacceptable. I would bet if it was a burly gentleman who was unable to pay they would have acted differently, i for one wouldn't have been amused at being locked in. Is this again the case of lack of respect for the opposite sex which is all to common among many faiths and races, this in the 21st century and should not be tolerated. A boycott of this garage should be enforced now
Are u thick? How does the petrol station system know if Nat West and RBS had a of problem did the banks contact all the businesses. 80% of the time customers don't come back even when the leave valuables behind. The cashier was right £25 would come out of his pocket few of them a week and you'd be working for nothing.

No crime was committed, they did not phone the police when they detained her, therefore illegal.
I would have created an exit using the nearest member of staff and a window, but then again I am not a Lady, nor can I be bullied.
If that had been my wife then holy hell would have been unleashed, low flying oil cans, microwave, that sort of thing.

For anyone thinking of falsely imprisoning anyone then think again. It wouldn't look good on one's CV either.

Cases in case law on the Crown Prosecution Services website have cases of imprisonment from a minimum of 12 months to 30 years - YES, that is correct, 30 YEARS.

Title: Offences against the person
Offence: Kidnapping - False Imprisonment
Legislation: Common law
Mode of Trial: Indictable only
Statutory Limitations & Maximum Penalty: At large
Sentencing Range: Serious specified violent offences

If the staff had closed the doors and not let her go and called the police IMMEDIATELY then it wouldn't be false imprisonment - but because they did not call the police, and even attempted by all accounts of the report, it is they that are in the wrong - rightly so!!!

There are no excuses from the staff or those who work in the industry as you SHOULD know the law and not bend it for your own convenience!

the point of law here is that if they believed her to be trying to leave without paying, they should have immediately phoned the police when they locked her up - they cannot take the law into their own hands, no matter how aggrieved they felt.

Actually in America MOST people pay cash for their petrol because it costs about 5p a gallon less if you pay by cash. Good rule of thumb, don't try to spend money on a Credit/Debit card unless you actually have the cash to back it up in case the bank has a problem.

Funny that of all the customers using the petrol station that only her card was declined. Her 'partner' stated it could have been the station's machine which was at fault, but only her card was declined.
For all the people who are saying 'boycott' Texaco, how about boycotting BP for what they did in the Gulf of Mexico, and boycott Exxon for what they did in Alaska. ?

lets get one thing straight here guys it is illegal to hold someone against their wishes! its only legal to detain someone if a crime is or has been comitted. your card being declined and having no other means to pay for your petrol is not a crime!

It is in America. If you attempt to buy something and don't have the money it is considered stealing. Saying your card doesn't work is no excuse. Store security will detain you until the police arrive.

Chevron USA sold the UK division to Valero Energy so they are of no
assistance. Most gasoline (petrol) in the US is dispensed at pay at the
pump so Ms. Grogan would have known that her bank card does not
work. She would not have been shot. It is no longer the "Wild Wild West"
in the US anymore contrary to what the mass media portrays.

Oh and by the way, maybe she could have called her partner or maybe he was at work, some people do work. Why didn't the garage ring the police? And, I wouldn't leave an iPhone as security, it might 'never be seen again'

Work? Can you not read, her partner was with her! Why couldn't have she rang the police off her so called iphone? She was sh1ting it coz she knew she was in the wrong! Nobody asking you for your opinion on whether to leave "YOUR" iPhone as security!

You need to read the article again farnyvegas because the staff asked her to leave the iphone as deposit. I assume she must have refused to leave her precious iphone behind, and thus the staff took action which I disagree wholeheatedly was the wrong decision.

My advice to her as was given to me by my father is always carry some cash! You never know when you will need it.

She could have rang her husband to make his way to filling station with some CASH and pay for the fuel.

Problem sorted.

SIMPLE!

At work? Don't you know that 90% of all benefit cheats have 'partners'?

Simple solution for all petrol stations is to buy a couple of wheel clamps, slap one on the car if the 'customer' can't pay and if they don't come back in an hour with CASH, have the car towed.

w1NGM4N we're not actually asking your opinion but we seem to be getting it, rammed down our throats.whatever the opinions, the police told the garage attendant that he was NOT allowed to lock her in the garage without phoning the police. People may still use that garage but I won't be doing. The forecourt isn't always full, I've only used it in the past because it is empty but never again. He's already going to be £550 a month worse off, just from me

Didn't you see the news??? The problem was with RBS and Nat West systems. None of their cards were working due to banks computer systems
How many people have cards with those 2 banks and yet SHE was the ONLY person in the country to have a problem.? I'm sure if she was told to provide 'PROOF' that she had the funds in her account things would soon quiet down.
I have a RBS card and mine didn't work. Read the news, the banks admitted it was a problem with their system
I've got an RBS card n mine worked n so did my mates! You guys chat waffles. If she can dye her hair pink (oh almighty that's a no no) then she can pull this 1 off aswel!
Oh and by the way, maybe she could have called her partner or maybe he was at work, some people do work. Why didn't the garage ring the police? And, I wouldn't leave an iPhone as security, it might 'never be seen again'
Work? Can you not read, her partner was with her! Why couldn't have she rang the police off her so called iphone? She was sh1ting it coz she knew she was in the wrong! Nobody asking you for your opinion on whether to leave "YOUR" iPhone as security!
Can YOU not read, her 'partner' was NOT with her, he also stated that her 2 kids 'COULD' have been with her - they weren't, so what has that got to do with things?
w1NGM4N we're not actually asking your opinion but we seem to be getting it, rammed down our throats.whatever the opinions, the police told the garage attendant that he was NOT allowed to lock her in the garage without phoning the police. People may still use that garage but I won't be doing. The forecourt isn't always full, I've only used it in the past because it is empty but never again. He's already going to be £550 a month worse off, just from me
£550 a month? You must travel the world! Then again I know guys who double that a month, they also got a contract with a car dealership that get all there cars filled up from there! You take your £550 n shuv it where the sun don't shine! Don't need it! You must have space rocket! I filled up from there again n there was almost 8/10 pumps busy! SHE SHOULD HAVE RANG FROM HER PHONE! "E.T PHONE HOME"

£550 a month may not sound much but a few of my friends also use that amount and they are boycotting that garage as well so if he wants to throw away £120,000 a year then that's fine by me. I've passed that garage many times over the past couple of days and only once have I seen the forecourt full, most of the time only 1 or 2 cars there and a few times it's been empty. I don't really care if you fill up there or not but you've been quite abusive to a few people on this thread and there is no excuse for that. Still, it's easy to do that when you're hiding behind a user name and a computer. Read the site terms for this website

Another thing, we are taking her word on the events. The garage owners have taken the right attitude and not commented: it's not worth their while. This incident will soon be forgotten and life will be back to normal.
You idiot, did you not read the article. This was an honest woman caught by the RBS system crash.
