If you're in the US, they are probably trying to send your mother a civil demand letter. This is basically a letter saying "Pay for what you stole, or we'll sue you for it." These are almost always empty threats. The company is hoping that you or your mother will be intimidated by the letter, and pay for the stolen goods. If you don't, they almost certainly will not waste their time on a lawsuit over $20 worth of merchandise.

If they were serious, they would've gotten the police involved already.

Simple, just don't go to the store on Mon. Just avoid that one for quite awhile.

If they call again, tell them to eat a dick.

Did you obviously conceal something? Bought something and stole? Bought nothing and stole? Or what?

I've never been caught but it sounds like they just want you to give the stuff back

I'd just pay the $20 before they decided to try and sue which is stupid if you only stole $20 worth of merchandise they should just drop it because there's no case to be made
