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!

I have been getting called endless times about the stuff we are renting from them. My bf and i have hit a little bit of hard times and have told them that on the first we would have a payment for them, yet they still came and repossessed the items only after coming to my door saying they are from a church group to get me to answer the door. How is that legal when the manager agreed to us making the payment on the first

The problem with Rent A Center is the fact that they are total idiots. The reason why they are idiots is because the people at the top are liberal Democrats.

This is *** Literally everything he said is a lie. I currently work for rent a center.

We can do all of these things except enter your home. What we will do is take you to court and have an officer come out and let us get our *** back. And no, it does not take 6 months. Not even close!

This guy is an idiot! You are absolutely required to give the stuff back if you don’t pay, it’s not yours!

Lies! You cannot stand around and wait outside someone's home and harass them for payments.

Not one employee will do that!

I promise you know good and well your life is more important than that. Who's risking their safety for payment and you're already getting paid hourly?

what you are saying is not exactly true it depends on how long you have rented. if the money paid and depreciation exceeds the cost they will not be allowed to repossess.

case in point I paid on furniture for over a year and a half was down to last 7 payments and ran into an issue.

I had already way over paid the value and they were not allowed to repossess. also if any relative's asked not to be called again they have to stop as the relatives did not enter to any binding agreement.

Thank you this helps a lot i owe Badcocksfl $3,000 in apartment furniture that i can no longer pay due to being disabled and undergoing recent surgery, i doubt they will try and get the stuff back as we all know they dont sell the best quality items, and under 2 months things are already falling apart

I work in the title pawn buisness and we do not check or report to credit, but we are still Debt Collectors!! We Still have to abide by FDCPA guidelines when it comes to collecting a debt.

Period. FDCPA IS FEDERAL, doesn’t matter what state you live in, every consumer agency or debt collector has to abide!! ALSO, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A DEBTORS JAIL!! it is a debt.

Period. You signed a contract, they agreed to finance you a product.

(Just like a loan from a bank, or a finance co.) I’ve never heard of a finance company arresting someone who didn’t make a payment? Wise thing they can do is put it against your credit or send it to a collection agency, or small CLAIMS court
