Under civil demand merchants can "demand" payment for the loss or damage in addition to the costs associated with the theft under the threat of civil action if the person refuses to pay. They are basically penalty fees that include the value of the item, in addition to a fee that is calculated based on the value of the item. Depending upon the state, for example, if the item stolen was worth $10, the merchant can legally multiply the loss by 10 times its actual value, demanding $110 from the accused. If the person fails to comply with the civil demand letter, then merchants can seek civil recovery their losses in a civil court.
