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 seen some of the comments and I have been with them since 2000, and as time went by the staff has gotten awful. I packed up all the items I had but one and I just told them in no uncertain term will you get it, because of all the money you made on me, you will sell that same item to some one for the same price.

My goal is let the know that I know the rules and the Reform Act Laws of 2007 and I won't be bullied by no body and don't set foot in my yard cause you are at your own risk.

Customers, get on line and look up Rent-a-Center and know your rights. In the same week I return my things, others were doing the same thing due to management attitude.

I lost my job and i had a form that simply said they would help me out as much as they could. my wife became pregnant and started working, 2 weeks ago she lost our babies.

I told RAC and they didnt care to even listen and threaten to send me to Jail.

They harass me and my family all the time. KARMA IS COMING RAC ;)

(a note of sarcasm)...Can you read a RAC application? Does RAC carry Hooked on Phonics?

It may be a worthwhile investment for you. Maybe when you have a day off from throwing "idot" in jail for "itusally 90 days". If you had better communication skills, I bet you could get a better job so you wouldn't be broke, as stated on 2/3. This may be an old thread, but it's never too late to encourage someone to educate themselves.

(Bring on the, way too angry, response.

I'll do my best to understand you. :roll

Ive been a loyal and ontime customer for nearly three years. I have now become six days late,and they are calling constantly.

Even calling my mom. I can't afford to make payment,and I'm within $500 of paying off two items. Can they pick up the stuff? Or will I be arrested?

I need these items but it's not worth being arrested. I just can't afford them right now and they won't work with me. I can't see giving them back when I'm so close to having stuff paid off.

Please help. Thanks!

I am $417.00 from paying off. I am past due $247.00.

I called to make a payment and they refused to take a $50.00 payment.

I am so tired of their B.S. I refuse to give my stuff back if they refuse to take a payment and only owe $417.00 to payoff.

You guys are the thieves. I wish that everyone in this world would see what criminals RAC is.

You charge 5 times what anything is worth. I had to buy from you for the first time in my life and payed off MY merchandise in one year. I am 38 years old and if I was one day late RAC harassed me at work, home and even my teenage daughter. What a sucky job their employees have...a professional bully!

Yuck...I am so thankful that I was only unemployed for 5 months as a nurse. These guys should be ashamed. Everyone that buys from RAC aren't thieves, but you treat everyone as they are. People only buy from you guys as LAST resort because of hardship in their lives.

RAC should keep their prices fair and you may have returning happy customers.

Instead, you rather cheat people. :(

It really did get stolen, I forgot to mention a previous laptop I bought from them, was 2 years older than they claimed! I got it home and it had stuff downloaded from 2008!

They acted like i was the *** and told me that they sit in warehouses unused for long periods of time!
