Dont let rent a center bully you!

i worked for rent a center and i know first hand of their bullying scare tactics and over all shiester buisness practices. let me put your mind to ease if you are being harrassed for non payment of your items

1) if you fail to pay they can not come to your home and demand payment.

2)they can not enter your home and seize the items.

3)they can not wait outside your residance to confront you about payment.

4)they can not call your referances and enquire about you for non payment

5) you are not required to give them the items back.

6)they must stay away from you and your home and freinds. if they want the items back by law they are to leave you alone and file a small claims action for the items. this process can take up to 6 months or more. in the mean time the items depriciate in value. you do not have to attend the small claims hearing. what will happen is the judge will dissmiss their case against you and inform them that like a credit card this is a credit issue and they need to put it against your credit rateing. if they are doing any of the things i mentioned in 1-5 you can call the police and tell them they are harrasing you and/or scareing you your family and freinds. also, BIG NO NO RENT A CENTER CAN NOT CALL YOUR WORK FOR YOUR NON PAYMENT!

Rent a center has been harassing me for nonpayment and calling my boyfriends work and coming by my house and also calling my family. I tried telling them about something serious that came up and they just don't care.

People can do 3rd grade Math *** and until you have walked in someone's shoes that goes there because they don't have other options don't judge them.I certainly don't like the interest rate and payments but I have bought many things 90 same as cash inot most cases.You obviously haven't been in some really bad situations to know that's the option you have and it's *** sometimes but it is what it is.Excuse the *** comment but considering I'm an intelligent person and have recently been actually thankful for such a business I wanted to reply and tell you that we aren't dumb some just have had *** things happen.

What are you talking about you have no clue. The law is actually they have every right to come to the house they do have to stop calling reference and only the reference if asked to. The local and federal law is the same any item not return regardless of value is a misdemeanor punishable by $1000 fine and 1 year in jail. I never understand how people let this go so far just return it if you can't pay.

If I pay every week on time does it build up my credit score

they can file criminal, depends on a couple things, how many payments you made on it for one, how much they owe on it, the retail value. Civil could be worse, sheriff sale, judgement ect. just return the items, is it worth all that hassle? go to Aarons, they are much more affordable. Better yet, lay away items you can't afford. or buy used from a consignment store.

tell the management at Rac what's going on, call the police and tell them that the landlord will not give you Rac permission to collect their items. Start from there.

I don't know where your from but here in Pa. Rent-A-Center can and will file charges against you for theft of leased merchandise and receiving stolen property. And believe me I have had customers put in jail for not paying and not returning merchandise. Think about it, you signed an agreement stating you would pay or return the merchandise. You can't just steal stuff and not pay the consequence's.

I've had rac merchandise for over 5 years, full living room set, full queen bedroom set, washer and dryer set, area rug, lamps, twin bedroom set and only paid 3 months of payments. I moved and changed numbers haven't heard from them in almost 4.5 years, lmao rac says they will file charges but the fact is rac is always trying *** moves, just like a thrift store takes old *** and sells it to you again!!!! I haven't paid, and never will
