When I was in Manchester I was caught for not paying my tram ticket. I gave them my real name but a fake address (one that I had previously lived at briefly) and fake mobile phone number.

The person that fined me was wearing a camera.

What are the chances I am going to get caught. If you could help me out that would be great.

Thanks!

Who knows but if you are caught you have lined yourself up for a much bigger fine

Hmm starting with one offence and then adding 2 more, one of which could lead to a prison sentence, not the best strategy I'd suggest. I wouldn't take you on as a defence barrister.

A number of scenarios could play out. most likely I think is you'll be summonsed and then convicted in your absence, them having an old address for you will make it easy to then find you and use and attachment to earnings order.

Were you given a fixed penalty? Paying that would have prevented any further action. If not they may well mail you one but as you won't get it that won't help.

Worst case they twig there was something up and you get a summons for the original offence, failing to give the correct details and also perverting the course of justice (the sentence for which could well be a spot of prison time). We have a whole 10 page thread dedicated to people who decided on a course of action leading to a prison sentence just to try and avoid a speeding charge, you could get an honorary mention if it gets to that.

Alright, it’s not the flame pit. Calm down.

Well you've come onto a public forum and confessed to doing an act tending to pervert the course of justice, I'm not really sure what help you expect from us?

The best advice I can give you is to contact Metrolink, say it was a moment of madness and see if they'll accept prompt payment of the fine in exchange for forgetting about the other offences.

Pay the fine and that will be the end of it...
