Rent a Center / harassment
My husband and I were evacuated out of New Orleans 10 days after Hurricane Katrina "dropped in" on us. In order to keep track of FEMA, locate missing people and a lot of other horrible things due to the hurricane - My husband rented a computer from a "Rent A Center. Due to the fact that we lost everything we had no other financial choice but to use this odious business. At the time we rented the computer my husband had found employment thus NO GOVRNMENT FUNDS WERE USED TO RENT THE COMPUTER. Up until recently our payment was always made on time. Since the economic situation has changed drastically there have been times when we had to request that a late payment be excepted ALONG WITH LATE PAYMENT FEES!
The Rent A Center was kind enough to simply waive one payment. The minute we are a day late WE ARE HARRASSED UNTO DEATH!! ONE OF THE PERSONNEL EVEN CAME AND POUNDE LOUDLY NON-STOP FOR WELL OVER A HALF HOUR COMPLETELY IGNORING THAT WE LIVE IN AN APT AND THAT HE WAS DISTURBING OTHER TENENTS!!! A NEIGHBOR TOLD ME ABOUT THIS AND HE TIMED THE LENTH OF THE PONDING ON OUR DOOR> I was not home at the time or obviously I would have answered the door! THIS COMPANY HARRASSESS PEOPLE NOT STOP! IT IS LIKE DEALING WITH THE GESTAPO! THEY ARE HORRIBLE!! The business should be renamed "RENT A NAZI"!! There is a lot more but I can't possibly begin to fit all of it in this msg. When I looked up Rent A Centers on the Internet I was astounded at the countless law suits, complaints, and a lot of "scams pulled by this sorry excuse for a company NATION WIDE!! NEVER AGAIN would we even consider getting within 5 miles or more of a RENT A CENTER!!! CONSUMER BEWARE!!!
