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!

You are partially correct. As a landlord, I have let many rent a center personnel into a unit to reclaim their property. I have also seen at least five of those people arrested for grand larceny. Your employment history aside, you are wrong on at least two of your points.

I'm 4 weeks late on payment. I almost lost my house so I'm dealing with that. They have showed up multiple times in a day. So I can call the police? I also believe they froze my bank account

What if you live in Missouri can criminal charges be filed.

No, this is true. I am a resident of independence, Missouri and 15% of my paychecks are now being garnished from rent a center suing me. Just give the item back or call and set up a payment plan.

I have been called the morning that my payment was due. It's like I was looked at sideways because I preferred to come in to make a payment in the store instead of giving my information over the phone. I can't wait to be done with this company. The manager seemed a little uncomfortable that I was asking so many questions while doing the paperwork. I heard him over the phone telling his district manager that I have a lady here " obviously she's educated" have a question about the rate on the contract. Being rude is not great customer service. If I didn't put so much on my furniture I would return it, but I see there are no refunds. I'm trying my best to save at pay it all off very soon. Too much rudeness in this company.

Can rent a center show up or threaten to show up at 11:00 p.m at night? I have been getting text and calls since 9:30 at night saying they are coming to my house?

They are the worst at harassing you for non payment and they have done all of this to me constantly calling my work even asked my employees for my work address. People are late on payments sometimes and 10 plus phone calls a day on your personal phone and at your work is ridiculous..
