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 every right to contact an employer trying to reach you, however the employer can tell RAC not to call, and at that point, they have to stop

Im in ohio i moved to the capital, columbus, a couple of years ago but back home i bought several things off of them with the insurance plan, my dryer broke 2 months after the insurance was no good, do that was a $700 loss, the "brand new" kitchen table i bought, 2/4 chairs broke and the table is going to be next, they sell junk and over price it. And the insurance is a joke. So now i have been renting washer/dryer, couch/love seat and paying at least! 400/month, they start bullying me the very day it comes due, I'm a nurse and have a very good job and i told them they don't need to worry about "reminding" me of my payment, then they have been trying to pin me with a $15 late fee of I'm a day late. So to the person saying we are broke for using Rac, not the case, actually you got to have alot of money to rent from them, some of us don't have a whole lot of credit or the best of credit so we are forced to use these awful places that take advantage of us

Hi there I am dealing with aarons. Is it the same for them the things you said in your post?? Because they have called my parents and sister. Harassed my husband at work while he works two states away. Somehow found where I worked (didn't have a job when first started this). And calls me three or four times a day. My boss is ready to fire me. Finally tonight I went and had a meeting with store manager and he practically grabbed my purse asking how much money did u bring me. Very uncomfortable and I will not do alone again. He threatened to wait outside my house so he can pick up items. I'm actually scared. My husband is gone for three weeks at a time and I am here alone. Just wanna know my rights.

If the letter u received is not sign nor it has the proper information on how much you owe, then dont stress about it cause it is useless

Depends on your state actually. So check your local laws. In the Commonwelth of VA it's actually criminal. You can be charged with a misdemeanor if it is under $1000 if it is over $1000 you can be charged with a felony and on a per item basis
