Question for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Why are guards killing me in riverwood. Everytime I enter 3 guys come up to me and say "were going to teach you a lesson". Then they jump me. I think it's because I been stealing but don't know how to fix it.

Okay well if your are trying to steal make sure you are in sneak while doing so and are undetected the entire time. (R3 or L3 for sneak). If they attack you and are guards then by yielding (putting your weapons away) they will stop and engage you in dialouge. You will be given a few choices.

1: Pay your bounty off.
2: Submit and serve your jail time
3: continue fighting by resisting arrest
4: Bribe them (need perk or to be with a certain guild)
5: Be pardoned (need to be a thane of the region you are in

Select either pay off bounty or go to jail and you should be good to go.

It is a hit, they are hired thugs not guards, you have to kill them

They did the same thing to me in windhelm so I took off running and escaped and when I went back they were gone

If They Are Hired Thugs Kill Them. I had this problem outside of whiterun so I killed them and went back to life. But if they are gaurds sheath *put away* your weapons and go to jail or pay off your bounty.
