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!

They can not enter Home without permission but situation can be deceiving, he becomes a “he said- she said” situation and left at that.

Unfortunately there is not much to about the calls they don’t go by fair collections act because they don’t go based off of credit: so your pretty much being called because you have there stuff and haven’t paid for it (in short terms) but in most cases and the court cases I’ve seen if you answer

And let them know what’s going on they note the acct with an agreement. But broken agreements will

Just cause more Calls

They cannot enter your home without your permission.They are also not allowed to call from a personal phone unless they are a district manager or above.

I recommend paying your bill on time or staying in contact with the store and being honest. All most of these stores want is communication and honesty.

Either way they have rules to follow.I work there so I know.

No. Your ex roommate will be responsible for it. It was not in your name.

My husband works out of town...therefore we pay our bill on a monthly basis..which was fine at first..but its been 6 days since our last payment and they're knocking and harassing my references

We have paid nearly 3000 dollars since March..that should show that we pay the bill. I will never rent from them again!

OMG I've been waiting 4 months for them to claim their property.I've not paid and told them to come get it.

I moved to Wisconsin from Missouri and they said they have no way to get it. Ok..... So am I to hold on to this stuff for the next 10 years hoping something doesn't happen to it and I get charged or some ***. There has to be a law that if they don't get it after so many days it's yours.

For real.I'm bout to start charging them storage fees for real

they put a warrant out on my sister and she ended up serving 3 days in jail in a different state. This was all because my sister moved and her roommate stole the furniture for herself.
