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!

Do You Have Something To Say ?

Here is a perfect example of Rent-A-Centers perception of people.This guy refers to customers as maggots.Ask yourself do want to do buisness with this guy?And nine times out of ten,customers dont pay for the merchandise because of a personal reason,not that they dont have the money but because of the attitudes and harrasment from rent-a-center employees. :sigh

But you had no problem taking the items out of the store when you wanted it though did ya?? No excuse why you shouldnt paid for whatever item because of 'personal reasons' thats why the people that are legit and pay for their items have to pay out a lot of money because people decide they want something for free, or get sIck of paying for it.

Yeah, hard times suck, and most everyone has them, but its still no excuse not to give the items back, or just pay for it like you agreed too when you walked out of the store with it. Simple

Call the police if rent-a-center knocks on your door.Police will put a trespass order on them and charge them with trespassing if they come back.SEEN IT WITH MY OWN EYES,EX EMPLOYEE. The thing is rent-a-center puts so much pressure on employees,thats why they act like that its not them its the establishment,and then when these harrased customers call customer service they will discipline and ridicule their own employees publicaly on the company web site.Its crazy,never seen anything like it in my life and im 36.Rent-a-center is not going to last much longer,they will reap what they sow eventually :grin

DON'T LET ANY ONE FOOL YOU ABOUT STEALING FROM RENT A CENTER AND GET AWAY WITH IT!!!!

I tried to be a smartass and ended up in jail. Not a pleasant expreience.

THERE IS A NEW STATUE IN FLORIDA LEGISLATION. Statue 815.112, Section 3 which states:

"Failure to re deliver hired or leased personal property beyond the rental or agreed period, constitues a felony of a third deegree if the value of the merchandise is of $300 or more. As provided in s. 775.082, 775.083, or 775.084.

I have worked for Aarons Sales and Lease and was a manager trainee there....harrassing is what you are trained to do...my GM and RM told me that there is really nothing that they can do but report these customers if they fail to pay...yeah you can file on them...but they would rather work something out or just report it to their credit to prevent having a bad reputation. I dont know exactly how RAC works though...

I have been harassed by Rent a Center and I even got it on recording. The manager tried to insult me because I work at Subway by telling me to make him a sub and then hung up in my face.

Like that would motivate me. It's been nothing but a nightmare with them.

Really it can go both ways depending on the situation. Now if you go into a place, rent a item and walk away without paying 1 payment or calling or anything, then yes you can be arrested.

The term for that is "stealing". And depending on the amount it can be a felony charge. But if you have made payments, talked to them let them know your situation, and show them that you are willing to pay them, then you will be fine, you just have to deal with the home visits and the calls until something is done. Yes that is legal to a degree, there is a line between debt collection and harassing.

If you have proven to them that you are willing to pay them back but they still take you to court, then it would be small claims and it will either be thrown out or the amount will be placed against your credit.

All depends on the judge. But just to save all the stress and bs that you and other people have to go through, just pay your bills, and if you can't then return the items or call them and explaiin your situation, (keep in touch).

I had to pay for my mother's funeral I'm not trying to blow them off trying to let them give me more time. They are a harassing me. Funerals take 3 days 2 viewings 01 burial.

They're getting the extremely pissed. What should I do??

I am involved with a local rent a center due to my wife's medical bills for cancer. I had a computer and a tornado destroyed my roof ruining everything in the house including the computer.

They said I am responsible for paying for it. I am a retired police officer in memphis TN.

I have been contacted and made calls regarding these complaints. It is a civil case.
