Not resolved

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!

Are there any complaints against rent -a -center concerning that model and or serial numbers on the actual appliances themselves not matching up to what is on the rental agreement description of property?
I rented a new washer and a new Dryer combo from rent-a-center located in Ohio aprox 3 months ago. Both units are made by Maytag and are Maytags upper end, heavy-duty commercial washer and dyer models. 36hrs ago the dryer made a huge banging/grinding noise with noticeable light smoke and heavy burning smell and ultimately the dyer ceased up. long story short, As Im waiting for RAC to call me back today I googled if anyone else had similar issues as me . I entered the brand, serial # and model # that is on my rental agreement documents and found that those numbers do not exist. dumbfounded I checked the mod/ser numbers on my appliances against my rental agreement documents and the numbers are in fact different. I think they gave me a used/refurbished unit?? Im not sure how I should handle this situation and/or who to contact first. Any help you may have will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

No. You best be reporting it stolen so that you have a police report. The one they rented you has a serial number, and trying to replace it with another could be construed as fraud, unless they accept such as a replacement..

You're an ***. They have rights to take possession and by signing the rental agreement and rental order form you are giving them that right. You also sign the rental order form where it states that they can contact your references and your job. They can also press legal (criminal) charges if they can prove you made little to no attempt to pay and intended to steal which in CA it's less than a 20% investment in the merchandise , other than that it's a small claims and if you don't show they win automatically and can garnish your wages like a normal creditor.

Pay what you owe or give it back. If you can't pay you can't keep it.
