Rent A Center - theft and threatening

Posted: 2014-08-29 by    blueeyes96
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I was renting two laptops from this store. Each time I made a payment they would stick the money in their pocket instead of to the account. Then when I got tired of messing with them and told them to come and pick them up, they showed up a day early and was caught peeping in my windows. There was also a worker there that told my son that if he would sleep with him he would say that the laptops were paid off. Do not rent from this store...they will rip you off and say that it is your fault....

Went into rent a center with all good intentions to purchase a bedroom set, upon speaking to a sales person i was just asked to fill out a form and to pay 32.00 and they would let me know when a delivery date was available.

My husband and I rented from rent a center. There was no problem at first but then work obligations called for him to relocate for 60 days (and yet this company offers online bill pay) I got hurt so I am out of work til mid sept. These people called (white lane store) and my husband told them he will be out of town, they had the nerves to tell him, they needed payment, , then they continue to call, so I decided to go online to pay it and get them off my nerves and couldnt even pay it. Instead of them, allowing payment, they didnt, I ignore their calls. But now since reading these complaints, I welcome...

I went into this location on 5-July-2012 to inquire about options to purchase a bed for my grandparents.

I entered the store to be approached by representative Jason or Justin a white male and he looked like he had dipping tobacco in his mouth very unprofessional. He was very understanding and he listened to my concerns and every question I asked he answered it. He explained to me how it works with a cash purchase and told me it would be a lot cheaper and I was all for it because I do not...

My son, whom I have no contact with, used my name and number as a reference for him at Rent A Center. I did not give him permission to do this and I did not give Rent A Center a reference for him. However, Apparently he has not paid for his merchandise and Rent A Center is calling and harassing me. I have no way to contact him and have requested they stop calling me. The person in the Palmdale office "Regina" leaves harassing and threatening messages on my phone. I am not and never would be his reference and want these harassing phone calls to stop...

They are no better than a loan shark or cash advance.. DONT RENT FROM THEM ! I have to now file a law suit. against them... I lived in Maine back in 2005 and rented to own a front load washer and dryer.. The product did not work I kept paying (they got 2 thousand dollars out of the 35 hundred dollars) so I finally told them to pick up the piece of trash and replace it.. They picked up both and did not replace the items using the excuse that I was late one to many times. I fought with them for a while and finally realizing that I lost 2 thousand dollars purchased else where.. He it is 2012 I went...

I work at a nearby restaurant on Lafayette road in Indianapolis, In. I had a Rent a Center employee stop and visit my store. Before he left I could see that he was trouble, so I asked him if he was ok. He told me yes at first but, I knew there was something wrong. I ask again if he was ok and he broke down crying. He was crying heavily. He said that he worked at the Eagledale Location and that his boss had grabbed him and slammed him. I asked him if they had a confidential number that he could call and he said yes, that he had call the number before, but it got back around to his District manager...

Rent A Center - New York, Brooklyn - not refunding my security deposit

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I rented a dryer for 2 months and paid a $200 security deposit. When I returned the dryer (about 2 months ago) they could not refund the money as the credit card with which I paid was lost. I am calling them several times each day but NOTHING DOING! They claim that they're working on it but I don't see any progress at all! I'm very disappointed at their service so I'm involving consumer affairs. HOPEFULLY THEY'LL HELP ME GET MY MONEY BACK! Anyone out there interested in renting from them- be very careful their service stinks!...

this location has now for about five years has been breaking all the collection rules and regulations. it seems that when customers go seven days late they are threatened with arrest and the "booty house. it would not be so bad but it seems that the dm is also ok with this. because as long as the numbers are met he does not care what is said or done. on top of all this it seems that company guide lines of not being able to file on any one unless they meet certain guide lines. previous managers at this location have filed or allowed to be filed on customers that had paid in hundreds of dollars. all...

I have worked for the company for 4 years now and the only thing i have learned is how not to treat people. i mean debt collection is a big part of the job, but when your store manager intentionally has you breaking laws and then threatening your job if you don't. I mean that isn't professional.

Then you have DM's playing favortism with female employees and tell their cowokers how the have "integraty" issues. I am now on workmans comp for a injury and the employees and store manager tell the customers i have been fired c'mon now !!! The company doesn't care...

Rent A Center - Worst business I've ever dealt with

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
I have seen some rip offs in my life but Rent A Center has got to be the worst ever! On a $450.00 sale, NOT RENT, over $300 paid. Late 2X but always paid. Went in to pay and they said "nope" coming to get the furniture! Even if I wanted to pay it off, nope! So that's how they make their money by ripping people off, then reselling it again! And wasn't repaired as they said they would! I've never seen a business this bad in my life and I'm 70 years old. This was my grandson. NEVER EVER do business with them. A shame!...
