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!

Lol at whoever wrote this article , rent a center can call your job, they can call your references , we Can come to your house and demand payment. They will take u to court and they WILL enter your home with a sheriff and locksmith you retrieve merch that is theirs..

Some counties do not allow to enter home but most do.. So do not do what this person is saying

Ok. No, they cannot enter your home.

And with a deputy and a locksmith.

Learn the law in your state. It does not work that way.

I as well have had horrible problems with RAC... Will never suggest them to anyone...

They have HORRIBLE guest relations skills. They try and bully you into submission. My son was recently informed and I was out of work for a month, explained this to them, initially had no problems until within a week of informing them of situation and that I would go online AS soon as my personal leave pay was deposited at end of month. I returned to work a couple days at the end of month before the deposit went in and they showed up at my house and sat outside STALKING and HARASSING my 16 year old daughter.

My sister called police.. now they are threatening to have me charged with a felony if I don't return..Here we are with over half of it paid off and they are using police to harrass me now while I'm out of town working. Even the biggest credit card companies don't put you through *** when things go wrong... Ya know, the old saying " catch more flies with honey, not vinegar"...

But I have come to the conclusion that they are crooks who put you through this so they can make triple the money if able to, especially on high dollar items rather than look at the fact of the customer being almost done with contract and paid off. They are ruthless and crooked...

I have offered to make a payment of $150.00 on a $397.00 bill, but he keeps asking me over and over when can get the rest, I told them two weeks later and he paused, I asked him if he still wanted the payment he said yes but needed the rest before the two weeks, so I told him well I will call you back when I can come up with the rest, now they ant stop calling, text- messaging and leaving v-mails

They called my contact and told him they are in front of my house to repossess the items and told him to call me because they didn't have my number however I updated it with them weeks earlier and was in contact with them daily. They called my landlord and we are now facing the possibility of rental termination because they showed up unannounced on posted private property and no trespassing.

The manager threatened to call my work. Is there anything I can do legally?

Legally? Well, you could have made your payments as defined in the Rental Agreement Contract you chose to sign. Or surrender the leased property back to the lawful owner (here a hint, its not you).

That's not true. I just went to jail for a warrant for not returning leased items.

Its considered fraud and a felony. Bad part is, he refused my payments cause I was 2 weeks late.Greedy man wanted the money I had paid and the merchandise so he could resale it.
