A mistake I made accidentally

by Darry

Hi there,

I am an international student who is doing the student exchange program in Copenhagen. This was my second day in Copenhagen. I was going to city to meet my friend, he suggested me to take metro by using rejsekort. I purchased a new rejsekort from the machine and deposited 100 Kr. I thought the card was used to tap at the exit of the station which I was going to and therefore, I got on the train. A few minutes later, an inspector asked me to show my rejsekort and checked it with his device. He gave me the fare evasion ticket although I had explained the whole situation to him. Because I had not received my CPR number, he only recorded my name and address.There was no reason for me to purchase a new rejsekort and deposit money in it, then evaded the fare and disregarded the law. I did not do it on purpose. Do you think if I make a complaint online, they would reduce the amount of the payment?
Thanks for your help

Best wishes,

Rejsekort mistake
by: Charlie

Hi Darry,
You can try but it seems that the conductors have heard every story imaginable and do not believe anyone. They assume everyone is a fare evader. You can try and argue your case, yet I am not very hopeful considering the cases I have heard about. Of course, I have heard several people tell me that they were are to argue their cases and win. Usually those cases are ones where the machines were malfunctioning and people could not check in or buy a ticket.
Let us know if you win.

It's true that you don't need the passport to cross the borders but, you do need a passport to identify your self to a police officer if they ask you.
